ACANCEH, YUCATAN (May 11, 2020).- The municipal authorities of Acanceh, reported that there are already 7 deaths confirmed from drinking adulterated alcohol. These men were practically poisoned by a mixture of different substances, such as; 2-propanol, ethyl alcohol, acetone and water.
Acetone, or propanone, is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO. It is the simplest and smallest ketone. It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid with a characteristic odor.

The municipal president of Acanceh, Felipe Medina Chi, explained that isopropyl alcohol is used in some household products, medicines and cosmetics (acetone) and is not suitable for ingestion.
The group of the now deceased would have obtained a bottle of tainted alcohol for 70 pesos, last Friday, May 8th. After ingestion they became intoxicated and the vast majority died in the hospital in this town.
The deceased from Petectunich are: Paulino M.M., 41 years old, Felipe de Jesús P.C., 66 years old, Tomás C. M., 45 years old, Bernardino M. M., 43 years old. While from Acanceh Pedro M.Z., 55, and Mario M., 45.
