BORDERLAND BEAT — Xalapa, Veracruz— The bodies of six people were found this morning in the ranch Los Limones, located in the village of Tenenexpan, in the municipality of Manlio Fabio Altamirano, near the rural area of the port of Veracruz.
The report from the naval police and of the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Veracruz sent to Xalapa indicates that “anonymous calls” gave notice that the bodies of six people with signs of torture and several gunshot wounds were found on a dirt road, naked, and with their hands tied.
Members of the naval police, civil force, and the forensic medical service cordoned off the concrete bridge Limones-Tenenexpan in order to carry out rigorous measures and to lift the bodies.
Near the site, various cartridges and abundant traces of blood were found, so it’s presumed that the victims were executed at the same site.
The remains are already at the forensic medical service (SEMEFO) waiting to be identified.
Yesterday, two youths who were reported as kidnapped 10 days ago in southern Veracruz, appeared executed in a safe house in the port of Coatzacoalcos.
Roberto Cristián Luis Guillén and José Luis Sánchez Guillén, both 27, were found face down, with ribbon tied at their hands and feet, with traces of multiple blows to the body. As they didn’t find any gunshot wounds, ministerial authorities presume that they died of asphyxiation.
