Dismembered Bodies Found in Veracruz, Mexico

MEXICO CITY – At least seven plastic trash bags containing human remains were found in the Gulf coast city of Veracruz, Mexican authorities said on Wednesday.

The bags were discovered Tuesday night and an investigation is under way, sources in the Veracruz state Attorney General’s Office told EFE.

Media outlets reported that the bags were accompanied by handwritten posters with messages addressed to state Public Safety Secretary Jaime Tellez.

Earlier this week, the Veracruz Coordination Group, a task force including state and federal law enforcement agencies, announced that Wednesday would mark the start of intensified security operations across the state.

The stepped-up enforcement is a response to a statistical analysis showing that crime usually increases in July and August, the coordination group said in a statement.

Veracruz, one of Mexico’s most violent states, suffered 625 homicides in the first five months of 2017, according to the National Public Safety System.
