Dismembered Bodies Found in Mexican Resort City

CANCUN, Mexico – Four plastic bags containing the remains of two men were found in a residential neighborhood of this Caribbean resort city, the Quintana Roo state Attorney General’s Office said.

The bags were spotted on Thursday.

One of the victims was roughly 1.7m (5 ft. 6 in.) tall, with dark complexion and black hair, and had multiple tattoos, including one of “Santa Muerte” (Holy Death), according to the medical examiner’s office.

Santa Muerte is the figurehead of a Mexican cult, popular among some criminals, that blends Christianity, Indian traditions, and folk beliefs.

The other man was described as being 1.65m (5’4) tall, with black hair and a piece of duct tape covering his mouth.

Both victims were in their 30s, authorities said.

Quintana Roo has seen an increase in violence over the past year that law enforcement officials attribute to a turf war among rival criminal organizations.
