DNA tests on skulls found in drugs lair

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - WORLD NEWS -

Mex­i­can au­thor­i­ties are run­ning DNA tests to de­ter­mine the iden­tity and ori­gin of 42 hu­man skulls found at an al­tar in a drug gang’s hide­out.

The mound of skulls in Mex­ico City was piled around what ap­peared to be an al­tar of an AfroCaribb­ean re­li­gion.

A raid by hun­dreds of po­lice on a labyrinthi­ne slum com­plex last week yielded the skulls, two metham­phetamine labs, guns, grenades and about two and a half tonnes of mar­i­juana.
