CANCUN — The crime wave that Cancún has experienced since the beginning of 2016 continued with the execution of a subject in broad daylight and the discovery of a body in a suburban tract and another one in the so-called “Route of the Cenotes”, in Puerto Morelos.

Thus, a little more than three months before the end of the year, Cancún reached 123 executions, which is double those registered in 2016.

Last night, a man’s body appeared on a vacant lot in Region 247, at the entrance of the Blue Bonampak subdivision. Neighbors found the corpse with its hands and feet tied.

Hours later, at about 11 o’clock in the morning, in a sascabera of the Route of the Cenotes in Puerto Morelos, appeared another body, with at least 15 gunshot wounds and next to it a message, as well as 25 used shell casings, apparently of a .223 caliber weapon.

The director of the municipal police in Puerto Morelos, Gumersindo Jiménez Cuervo,  identified the victim as Francisco Javier Mass Canul, domiciled in the colony ’23 de Enero ‘of the municipality of Puerto Morelos.

He added that the man had gunshot wounds on his chest, head and both extremities.

Later, at 1 pm, a subject known by the name of “Paquito”, was executed in Region 100 of Cancun, reaching the figure of 123 executions so far this year.

Early reports revealed that a person who accompanied the victim at the time of the attack, which was registered a few meters from Lopez Portillo Avenue, left unharmed.
