Sinaloa: SEMEFO "Patio of Horror"

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from El Debate

The patio of Horror 

Culiacan, Sinaloa.- There are corpses lying all, rolled and tied in white plastic. Some, atop aluminum stretchers; others on the ground below.  It is not the scene of a crime: it is the courtyard of the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo), where it seems that it has become a common issue for this office of the Attorney General of Justice, which is responsible for safeguarding victims who, by willful or accidental reasons, have lost their lives.

Wrapped in tarps, swollen and odor of decomposition, lay unidentified bodies. According to visits by El Debate journalists photographic documentation, the bodies, up to 21 lay in this manner for at least ten days.  The refrigerated storage failed over two month ago and no attempts to repair the system have been made, the situation complicated by the number of corpses exceeding storage capabilities.

The smell of death permeates the walls and spreads by several meters around the building, affecting people passing by the site or going to the newly opened facilities of the Regional Criminal Justice Center and Oral accusatory, downtown.

El Debate  has requested a statement from the Attorney General of Sinaloa, which he has so far refused. On various occasions, especially since the investigative report on the conditions of accumulated unidentified cadavers located at the "The Patio of Horror" at the SEMEFO Culiacan facilities, Higuera Gomez has refused interviews along with the Governor of Sinaloa, Mario Lopez Valdez and Gerardo Vargas, although Vargas has confirmed the voracity of the information.

    1. U.S has plenty to blame. There is no Politician out there saying Americans need to curb drug usage to quit feeding Mexico's problems. Not one politician holding Americans accountable.

    3. Only people with half a brain or a distasteful agenda can possibly lay blame on anyone except the Sinaloan authorities

    4. Only people with less than half a brain or a distasteful agenda can possibly lay blame on anyone except the purveyors of the War on Drugs that has only served to create this situation, and escalate it.

    5. Please stop with that, it's not a politicians responsibility, or anyone else for that matter, to tell me to not use drugs. If you have a good foundation growing up and taught right and still decide to use drugs.... well then sunshine, that's on you! You have a choice. Drug users have a choice. I have access to drugs but I don't use them. Just be responsible, stop justifying mexicos problem by blaming US politics or how Americans buy dope. That's nothing but a fucking excuse. Time for people to start owning up for the choices THEY MAKE. If drugs were legal then most of this BS wouldn't be happening.

  2. Soooooo my question is. Where is all that drug money going into. Because if these guys are buying properties, cars, those cemetery plots that look like small mansions, businesses, laundering money into the Mexican economy. All these towns are still broke? When cocaine cowboys came out. It talked about how Miami actually grew in economy based on cocaine.

  3. Sinaloa is a war zone right now and just like every state in mexico, it lies about the casualties.. just like Acapulco. Somebody is really trying to clean the house. Cds is getting hit hard regardless of what people that support that cartel say. You got cds fighting each other, cds against beltranes in sinaloa, cds against cjng in colima and tijuana and cds against cartel de juares in chihuahua. Only a mater of time before cds cells and up going to beltranes or other cartels.

  7. Mexico is way to complicaded and will never alow a revolution and the people who will lead that idea will simply get killed or imprisoned. Just look at the autodefenzas and dr. Mireles. It's not as easy as when Fidel Castro took over Cuba..

    1. A revolution is impossible with thieves at the head.

    2. 10:52 The revolution will have to be:
      DRAG THE ASSES OF THE OWNERS OF MEXICAN CORRUPTION THROUGH THE MUD, name names, then take on the mexican leaders of the corrultion, and start the brick bats of lawsuits in country and all over the world...

    1. No. It's Culiacan. The first line of the article begins with "Culiacan, Sinaloa". Please take at least 2 seconds to read before asking questions like this.

  9. Ok so this is meant for the person or persons deleting my comments. Some people here write straight stupid comments. Yet for some reason mine don't get posted. WTF is up with that? You guys on here are pretty biased from what I see. And I'm taking about whomever controls the comments.

  10. El SEMEFO in Guerrero has 460 bodies that are unidentified and they also ran out of room. In Chilpancingo, they had bodies lying in the parking lot. Based on a recent Grillonautas video, it seems like they built a temporary outdoor storage system for the bodies. Still, the SEMEFO is under-funded and overwhelmed in these hot spots of violence. Most of these bodies are probably of sicarios whose families don't know they've been killed, maybe don't even know where they were at.

  13. When a country decides to go to war, do they leave bodies where they fall?

    Does U.S. and Mexico have a winning or exit strategy?

    It is about having cartels fight each other while U.S. take the money from the sales within their country.

    1. Its so easy to judge and blame others,generalizing when you talk about Mexico is just plain wrong. We Mexicanos are not all in the narco-business.As a matrer of fact a very small percentage of Mexicanos are in those business, most of us are law abiding citizens. Please leave the stereotyping and insensitive labeling to ignorant people like Thrump. We are better than that.

    2. I feel its more like a social cleansing, getting rid of the poor uneducated that end upnas sicarios.

    3. It's not a US war until Marine boots are on the ground. This is Mexico's problem.

      Delete
    4. 5:24 looks like mercenary boots are on the ground, working the war for the drug trafficking business for the mexican and the US drug traffickers, helped by military attaches, army, air force, marinas, dea and cia, there in mexico, genarco garcia luna's "police" shot up a couple of them in cuernavaca...

  14. Very true this isn't U.S. war it's all mexico problem. If the mexican Government wasn't so corrupt, Mexico would actually get some where. When you have the people running the country stealing everything for their own profit it's never getting anywhere. Sad thing is Mexico is a beautiful country with good people in it.

    1. 9:08 the US declared its Monroe Doctrine, not the mexicans...
      --and the US has practiced what it has preached, since the 1800s complementing the white man's philosophy:
      "indian scalps his enemy, white man skins his friends"
      With a lot of practicing for the last 200 years...

    2. Amen 9:08!That's why it's called a developing country.It isn't developed yet.
