Nine bodies appear hanging from a Mexican highway
Mexico, May 4, 2012
The drug war does not let up in Mexico where violence is expressed in the most macabre. In this case, nine bodies (four women and five men) were hanged from a highway in Nuevo Laredo on the border with the United States.
The bodies were found on the bridge called Colosio located on road known as National Highway.
In addition, another 23 bodies were found decapitated in black bags across the street from the Association of Customs Agents. Later, the heads were found in three coolers, on other pedestrian bridge in front of City Hall.
With the bodies, the drug smuggling left a note claimed that the dead had been responsible for putting a car bomb outside the Public Safety Building in the city. They were charged with “warm the square” in the jargon of the drug cartels means making “excessive noise” to attract the police.
Some witnesses reported seeing a group of people hanging the bodies around one o’clock. The victims were blindfolded and had signs of torture.
