USA TODAY US Edition - - NEWS - From staff and wire re­ports

Marines have found the skele­tal re­mains of six men in il­le­gal burial pits in­side a house in the Mex­i­can re­sort of Aca­pulco, state of­fi­cials said Thurs­day.

The Guer­rero state gov­ern­ment said some of the bod­ies were found with their hands and feet bound. One had a piece of wire tied around its neck. The bod­ies were found in four pits in a low­in­come neigh­bor­hood far from the Pa­cific coast city’s beach­side tourist zone.

Drug and kid­nap­ping gangs fre­quently use pits to dis­pose of vic­tims.
