The hands of a man were found at dawn today in the front doorway to a Catholic church located in the village of El Vainllo in Mazatlán, Mexico.  In the same place police found a warning message – ‘this is what happens to thieves and liars’.

The macabre discovery was made at 5:20 am after an anonymous caller alerted local security forces to the entrance of the church where they could find human remains.

Immediately, several units of the Mexican Army and police went to the church of La Santisima Trinidad, where they observed two severed hands placed on a white cardboard in front of the principal entrance.

Specialists from the Attorney General of the State of Sinaloa inspected the cardboard where the message was written and where the severed hands were resting.  The message was clearly attacking certain criminal elements who had over reached in the crimes.
