While President Andrés Manuel López Obrador keeps saying that the people of Mexico is happy and that his government has eliminated corruption, and is fighting organized crime.
But the reality is far from that, as the mutilated bodies of six people were found on Thursday in a vehicle in southern Mexico, authorities said — the latest gruesome discovery in a country riven by gang-related violence.
Reuters, citing a statement from the attorney general’s office of Guerrero, reported that the severed heads of six men were discovered on top of a Volkswagen abandoned on a busy boulevard in the town of Chilapa de Alvarez.
According to local authorities, a warning sign strung from two trees was also found at the gruesome scene, Reuters reported.
“In Chilapa selling crystal, kidnapping, extortion and stealing are strictly prohibited. This will happen to anyone who messes around,” the sign reads, according to a photo of the crime scene provided by the police to Reuters. “Capital punishment is the sentence for all these crimes.”
Authorities said the corpses would be buried on Friday.
Discoveries of mutilated bodies dumped in public or hung from bridges have increased in Mexico in recent years as criminal gangs seek to intimidate their rivals.
In June 2021, two heads and other human remains were left at polling stations in the border city of Tijuana on election day.
Across the country, more than 340,000 people have been killed in a wave of bloodshed since the government deployed the army to fight drug cartels in 2006.
