According to Guerrero’s forensic service, 152 bodies have been found in clandestine graves in the state of Guerrero and 240 people are missing.
Leonid Arreaga Martínez is a forensic anthropologist working in Guerrero. He says that 152 bodies have been recovered from mass graves in the state in 2014 until October. According to Emilio Gregorio Ayala, expert in forensic dentistry who works in the same office as Martínez, 240 people are missing, among them the 43 students of the Ayotzinapa Teachers College.
Iguala tops the list of corpses found so far this year: 70; followed by Taxco, 25; Acapulco and Zumpango, 14 each; Chilpancingo, 6, and Teloloapan, 2. The information provided by the forensic team does not specify the municipalities where the remaining 21 bodies were found.
According to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), 58 bodies were found in clandestine pits of Guerrero from 2006 to 2013, and a hundred corpses buried in various municipalities were found in the first half of 2014.
In February, 25 bodies were discovered at the La Antena hill in Taxco. In March four bodies were found in Santa Teresa, Iguala. In April nine more corpses were found in Cerro Gordo, Iguala while in May 19 corpses were discovered in Monte Horeb neighborhood, also in Iguala. In June, 14 bodies were found in Zumpango.
And after the disappearance of Ayotzinapa students on September 26, 38 more corpses were found in October.
Arreaga and Ayala say that identifying the victims is a difficult job. Distinguishing marks such as moles, dental work and tattoos help them in their work. For example, they say that out of the 54 bodies found in Taxco in 2010, it was only possible to identify nine of them after interviewing around 300 people.
