Nine Dead Bodies Found in Abandoned Truck in Southern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities found on Saturday nine dead bodies inside a truck that was abandoned on the side of the road near the town of Tixtla, in the southern state of Guerrero.

The state prosecutor’s office was notified about the discovery at 9:00 am (1400 GMT), Roberto Alvarez Heredia, a government spokesman, said in a statement.

State authorities arrived at the scene and an investigation was launched, which has determined that the truck had not been reported stolen.

The nine bodies, whose sex has yet to be announced, were taken to the coroner’s office, “where a necropsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death,” Alvarez Heredia said.

According to official figures, 2,844 homicides and 69 kidnappings were registered in Guerrero in 2017, making it one of Mexico’s most violent states.

The wave of violence in Guerrero, which has led to infamous cases such as the disappearance of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa rural teacher’s college in 2014, has deeply affected the state during the last few years and has not subsided despite the deployment of federal forces.
