Six Slain, Dumped on Road in Eastern Mexico

VERACRUZ, Mexico – Killers dumped the bodies of six men on a highway near the boundary between the Gulf coast states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz, Mexican authorities said Tuesday.

The murdered men were discovered at 5:25 a.m. Tuesday on the road from Tampico, Tamaulipas, to Panuco, Veracruz, the Veracruz state Attorney General’s Office said.

Witnesses said the bodies were hurled from two moving SUVs at a spot near the Prieto Bridge.

The victims, all between the ages of 25 and 30, bore signs of torture, the Veracruz AG’s office said, adding that some of the bodies were flattened by trucks before authorities could reach the scene.

The last two months have seen multiple attacks on police installations and individual officers in the northern Veracruz towns of Panuco, Cerro Azul, Poza Rica and Tampico Alto.

Those assaults have been blamed on gunmen working for drug cartels and Tuesday’s killings likewise appear to be the work of organized crime.

Tamaulipas, which borders Texas, has suffered hundreds of fatalities this year amid a brutal turf war between the Gulf and Los Zetas cartels.

Drug-related violence has claimed nearly 30,000 lives in Mexico since December 2006. EFE
