10 Found Slain in Southern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – The bodies of 10 murder victims were discovered Monday at three different locations in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, an official spokesman told EFE.

In Chilpancingo, the state capital, six men were found decapitated in a pick-up truck, public safety department Roberto Alvarez said.

The bodies lay inside the passenger compartment, while the severed heads were wrapped in plastic bags and left in the covered truck bed.

Next to the truck was a second vehicle with bullet holes.

Two men were found shot to death on a road in the town of Chilapa. Investigators recovered six 9mm shell casings at the scene, according to an official statement.

The bodies of the two remaining victims were discovered inside a home in the village of Ahuihuiyuco.

All three incidents appear to be linked to a turf war between rival criminal organizations, Alvarez said.

Though home to the resort city of Acapulco, Guerrero is one of Mexico’s poorest and most violent states.
