Since April 4, authorities have uncovered a total of 96 bodies from a mass grave in a division of the city of Durango known as Las Fuentes. The search for additional bodies is ongoing, and victims have yet to be identified.
The clandestine grave was located across from a school in the middle of a neighborhood along Constituyentes avenue, the primary thoroughfare of Las Fuentes division.
Due to limited space, the Medical Forensics Service team has rented a Thermo King trailer to store the bodies.
The states of Durango, Chihuahua and Sinaloa form part of the area known as the golden triangle of drugs, and has been identified as a refuge for drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, of the Sinaloa cartel.
