The bodies of six men, believed to be members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), were found in an area in the ranch “San Isidro”, located in the municipality of Ecuandureo. This was confirmed by the Attorney General of the State of Michoacán (PGJE).
The bodies of the slain men showed signs of an attempted calcining. This massacre took place about 20 kilometers from the ranch “El Sol”, where last May, 43 people were executed, including two policemen from Jalisco.
The authorities have not yet identified the victims, but all were listed as being male, aged between 30 and 35 years old.
The PGJE explained that the dead were in an advanced state of decomposition and that they also found a cardboard piece that signaled that those dead were alleged extortionists and kidnappers belonging to the CJNG.
Through their Twitter account, the local attorney reported that they already started preliminary investigations corresponding to the location of the six dead bodies, as well as the arrest of four alleged perpetrators responsible for the deprivation of liberty of the now deceased.
Also, the PGJE revealed that the victims had bullet wounds from a firearm, however, the remains will be taken to the Forensic Medical Service (SEMEFO), where they will conduct autopsies to determine the cause of death.
