A total of nine unidentified individuals were found dead in a grave in northern Monterrey in Nuevo Leon state, according to Mexican news accounts.

According to a news account which appeared on the website of El Universal news daily, the victims were found in a grave on the banks on the Rio Silla between Nuevo Leon and Reforma colonies near the  intersection of calles Villa de Santiago and Agualeguas in Guadalupe municipality, a suburb of Monterrey, the capital of Nuevo Leon state.

Initial reports by the Procuraduria General de Justicia del Estado (PGJE), or attorney general were that two bodies were found.  Later it was reported that a total of nine were found.

The report of the medical examiner said that the victims died two days before and had been shot to death.

  1. Anything on a fight outside of Acuna, up the river on Lake Amistad, last week? Bass fisherman were cleared out, and escorted back to US side by Mexican miltary helicopters prior to the several hour battle. Bass fishermen with combat experience in Iraq said it wasnt target practice going on across the lake and over the mountain. Co-worker with family in Acuna also said many shoot-outs in Acuna last weekend.
