12 butchered in Durango state in 10 days

By Chris Covert

A news report posted on the website of El Siglo de Durango news daily Sunday morning says that a total of 12 unidentified individuals have been found dismembered in Durango state in the last ten days.

According to the report, the latest find was made in the La Laguna region in Mexico where police were tipped off by an anonymous phone call to the remains of a man stuffed into five trash bags.  The find was made on the road between Gomez Palacio and Tlahualilo.  The report said the victim was a man in his 30s.

According to a report in Contexto de Durango news daily, tto more dead found found in roughly the same area between Ejidos Eureka and 18 de Marzo.  Both victims were male, one in his 30s, while the other was in his 40s.  The two victims were butchered and stuffed into nine bags.

The report also says that nine of the victims were found in the La Laguna region, while a tenth, a female, was found in Durango city.

Thursday two victims were found in Santiago Papasquiaro municipality, who were decapitated.  The victims were found on a remote road near the village of Pascuales.  Both victims were male.

To date the Durango Fiscalia General del Estado (FGE), or attorney general has yet to address the finds.  The report also fails to make clear if any of the discoveries include the four dead found last Thursday, or the remains found in Cristobal Colon colony in Durango city.  Those remains are presumably part of the 331 who were killed in Durango state between 2007 and 2011, but that has not yet been established by the Durango FGE.

  1. The U.S are laughing

  2. Chihuahua has been pretty active also. Theres another asshole calling himself el ingeniero. Hes been killing alot of people in camargo and delicias. He leaves messages at the crime scene. Hes killed women and children too. He doesn't let anyone know what cartel he's with. Camargo chih. Is a lawless town. The police force is bought and the military too. These cartels terrorize by picking up people at random and leaving bullshit reasons giving reasons for the executions. There are no zetas here . Its la gente nueva and theses drug addicts they picked to run their plaza. These scum are just as bad or WORSE than the loser zetas.

    1. I know exactly what your talking about. You're from Camargo bro?

    2. Yes. Born and raised.

  3. Who is fighting who in eastern Durango?

    1. Zetas Vs Sinaloa Cartel.
      Torreon, Coahuila which is also in the same area; is a main battleground.

    2. La gente nueva are allways fighting with each other. When they sold they're souls they were already at odds with each other. So every chance they get they kill each other and blame it on the rival cartel. Like i always said when this shit is over we won't be able to trust anybody in mexico. We are doomed as a country.
