Authorities Find 96 bodies in Mass Grave in Durango

Since April 4, authorities have uncovered a total of 96 bodies from a mass grave in a division of the city of Durango known as Las Fuentes. The search for additional bodies is ongoing, and victims have yet to be identified.

The clandestine grave was located across from a school in the middle of a neighborhood along Constituyentes avenue, the primary thoroughfare of Las Fuentes division.

Due to limited space, the Medical Forensics Service team has rented a Thermo King trailer to store the bodies.

The states of Durango, Chihuahua and Sinaloa form part of the area known as the golden triangle of drugs, and has been identified as a refuge for drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, of the Sinaloa cartel.

  1. Blog del Narco reports 75 - El Norte currently reporting 96

  2. So why were all these people killed,kidnapped,drug compedators,snitch, who knows. In a country where criminal gangs rule and do GD as they please,with no consequences this human dump is no surprise. I am beguining to think EVERYBODY IN MEXICO is planning to swim the river and leave the place to the criminals!!

  3. Man these mass graves are popping up everywhere. I hope that the people who died were not innocent at least.

  4. Y que aqui tambien van a decir que los ZETAS

  5. Yes. Unfortunately there hasnt been much regarding the victims other than one is a woman. If I had to take a wild guess, I would think possibly other criminals, informants, majority being those who work for the cartel or those who refused to work for the cartel. There are various cartels operating in this region, with of course, the Sinaloa being the dominant cartel in this region, per reporting. You have to also consider recent reports of fighting within the Sinaloa cartel. Will be interesting to see how this unfolds and who gets blamed, but most interesting to me is that in the middle of a neighborhood nobody reported the smell of decaying bodies sooner.

  6. I don't get why people refuse to work for cartels if they are stopped at checkpoints and such I mean if I was traveling on a bus and stopped at a roadblock by the Zeta's or whomever and they told everyone to join or die, I am pretty sure I would join just to be safe for the time being and go with them. I could try and lose myself from them at a later time once in the cartel but to stand there and say NO to joining is pretty dumb knowing these coke head cartel members will kill without a seconds hesitation.

  7. Re: 9:19 pm- For those that are pulled from the buses and asked to join the cartel- what if the first thing they are aske to do was to kill one of their fellow passengers? The last minutes or hours of these peoples lives are unimaginable to me. May god have mercy on their souls.

  8. Yeah, I would join the Zeta's, and once they gave me a gun, I'd turn around and shoot as many of them as I could...

  9. To 9:19PM - I get what you are saying but the stories of what bus passengers have to do to join the Zetas are horrific.

    Once pulled off a bus, one has to kill others on the bus by very cruel methods to become a Zeta. According to reports many of these bus passengers have died by being buried alive, others have been burned alive, others have been tortured then killed and others have been dismembered and others beaten to death by sledgehammers - could you do this to an innocent civilian or a loved one who was begging for mercy in their last moments?
