Mexican authorities find 3 dead in Nuevo Leon
A dispatch published in the online edition of Milenio news daily said that the three dead were found in a grave in Salinas Victoria municipality on the road that links Monterrey with Colombia.
Nuevo Leon Procuraduria General de Justicia del Estado (PGJE) or attorney general Adrian de la Garza Santos was quoted saying that the most recent victim was killed about a month ago, but failed to say how far back the murders went.
Mexican press have characterized the find as executed, so it is probable the three were shot to death and dumped at the location they were found. Press reports also hint that the location was a dumping ground for kidnap victims.
One man, identified as Carlos Perez Gonzalez, 28, was detained in connection with the find. He is said to be linked to Los Zetas drug cartel.
Reports also say that Nuevo Leon state security forces are still searching for more bodies in the area.
