Mexican officials recover 7 dead corpses along route in tourist hotspot
Authorities in Mexico claim to have found the corpses of seven men dumped alongside a road in a tourist hotspot.
The remains of seven men were found abandoned on a highway in the Huasteca region late Thursday with substantial bruising that suggests they had been battered, according to local authorities.
Bodies found in Mexico’s Gulf region had written messages on them reading “this is what happened to me for working with the Gulf,” which is an apparent allusion to the Gulf cartel.
An apparent allusion to a rival gang, “Valles Operation O.B.,”, was included in the messages’ signatures.
An investigation by state prosecutors concluded late Thursday that the victims found in rural San Luis Potosi had been slain somewhere and placed there since they did not appear to be from the municipality of Aquismon.
Waterfalls and crystal-clear rivers in the Huasteca area have long drawn travellers from around Mexico.
An 11-person worst shooting at two bar locations in north-central Mexico was also blamed on cartel warfare.
Two competing drug gangs have been fighting for Guanajuato state’s dominance for several years, according to handwritten signs left at the scene of the killings.
Former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Tom Homan, warned earlier this month that cartel violence will continue to spread into the United States as a result of a lack of immigration enforcement at the southern border under the Biden administration. Homan.
“The most treacherous territory is where the convicted criminals and the drug dealers try to move their drugs, because it’s harder to apprehend them,” quoted Homan as saying, “America Reports.”
Continued Homan, “You know, only with use of a drone can you see them coming. So, yeah, you’re going to see populations across the entire southwest border. Every sector is going to see an increase because the cartel is going to spread their madness out, right? They’re going to send large groups to a certain area knowing Border Patrol is going to surge resources there. And that’s where they’re going to move the drugs and the convicted criminals, the pedophiles. This again, it’s a worst-case scenario. This administration has sold out our national security.”
