A dozen men were tortured, killed and buried in a small house in Juarez. Three years later, the U.S. government is still trying to cover up what happened.


The AFI, Mexico's federal police, descended upon the House of Death on January 23, 2004.


After five days of digging, they had unearthed 12 bodies.


Some had been covered in Quicklime to speed decomposition.


Today, there are still bags of cement and blood-stained clothing scattered throughout the house.
