Lucio R. Borderland Beat material from Noreste and Munipcios Puebla (thank you reader)
A total of seven bodies were discovered Thursday morning in an area known as “El Sumidero” ("The Gully") located in the municipality of San José Acateno, on the Puebla border with the state of Veracruz. The bodies were wrapped in blankets and had a warning message.
Although the state attorney refused to release the contents of the message, police groups spread rumors that the murders and message were the work of the Zetas. Presumably, the message was signed by the cartel.
The location has become a dumping ground for organized crime corpses in the state of Veracruz.
This, despite the roadblocks that have been installed, by the Mexican Army, the Navy and State Police, after the August 5th gruesome discovery, at the same site, of two women left naked, sexually assaulted and decapitated.
In the last two months, 11 bodies have been found in this location, between km 4 and 5 of the Acateno-Tlapacoyan highway, adjoining "guayabal" road.
On Tuesday July 7, two murdered males were found in plastic bags, both showing signs of torture. The bodies were discovered on the edge of the Acateno-Tlapacoyan Highway.
San Manuel ranch workers after noticing an odor, investigated the origin and found the naked corpses, whose hands were bound and displayed signs of torture. The bodies had been undiscovered for days, they were badly decomposed and had been partially devoured by wildlife.
