For the third time in recent days authorities have uncovered a Narcofosa in the town of Los Herrera, Durango. Los Herrera is a town that belongs to the municipality of Santiago Papasquiaro, it is approximately a couple minutes drive from Santiago.

The exact location is not specified it is only within the town limits. Authorities have found nine bodies in bags in advanced state of decay along with a metal drum. The metal drum is believed to have been used to calcinate the victims.

Also authorities have been investigating rumors that there is another Narcofosa in the limits of Pueblo Nuevo. For those that have followed the state of Durango it is known that Los Herrera has been a hotbed of narco Violence since the 70's. Santiago is a key position for any interested cartels since many roads from the sierra (Drug Producing area) lead into it.

Mexicans killing Mexicans for whatever reasons?? The reason life has no value in Mexico is there are no consequences THERE IS NO LAW. The lack of law was there long before drug gangs became so powerful. WHEN WILL IT BE TIME FOR MEXICO TO BECOME A FUNCTIONING STATE? WHEN?? THE PLACE HAS NO PRIDE OR SHAME

I truly believe they had more pride way back in the days of Santa Anna. I actually believe Santa Anna was so prideful, it`s what got his army slaughtered. They dressed better,had a semblance of law and order and a hierarchy. Now, it`s all run amuck. The country is truly out of the hands of the "government". Too many bribes and looking the other way. The chickens have come home to roost.
