A note found in Chilpancingo, Guerrero, announced the birth of a new cartel called "Cartel de la Sierra."
The incident occurred early yesterday morning after a citizen complained about an auto theft of a luxury vehicle on the highway "Del Sol." That same vehicle was found five hours later two blocks away on a neighborhood in the state capital. Inside the vehicle were six male bodies that showed evidence of torture and were bound on their hand and feet with duck tape. Many of the men had severe injuries to the head and throat.
One of the bodies was inside a black plastic bag and appeared to be decapitated.
The bodies were semi-nude, and none of them were found to have identification, however some tattoos were observed and one in particular reflected in the back the name "Karen."
The vehicle was found in the street Miguel Alemán with large amount of blood stains in the trunk and a sign that threatened all the extortionists, auto thieves, rapists, rats ("dedos" is slang for the same meaning as rats) and kidnappers that this will happen to them and was signed by the "Cartel de la Sierra."
Actual message in Spanish:
“Eso les va a pasar a todos los extorsionadores, roba carros, violadores, dedos, chapulines. Atte. El nuevo Cartel de la Sierra.”
The bodies that had not yet been identified and the crime scene were secured by the Mexican military.
