Charred Bodies Found in Abandoned Vehicle in Mexico

MORELIA, Mexico – The charred bodies of six murder victims were found inside an SUV abandoned on a dirt road in the western Mexican state of Michoacan, authorities said on Friday.

Coroners are trying to identify the bodies, the state Attorney General’s Office said.

The vehicle was left in a rural area outside Uruapan, the state’s second-largest city.

The killings and the burning of the bodies took place Thursday night, according to the AG Office, which said that police suspect the crime was connected to a turf war between criminal organizations seeking to control the drug trade in Uruapan.

The two largest cartels operating in the western state are Jalisco Nueva Generacion and La Nueva Familia Michoacana.

A young man was gunned down Friday in an Uruapan slum known as Doctores.

Michoacan authorities have deployed additional state police in Uruapan and other areas in a bid to slow the advance of the cartels.

The Mexican federal government’s most-wanted list includes a dozen purported drug kingpins from Michoacan.
