Photo: Bodies Dumped By Voladores de Papantla Monument
Rush hour traffic near downtown Boca del Rio in the state of Veracruz came to a halt when bold narcos dumped 35 dead bodies in a highway underpass.
Drivers were told to stop by armed gun men and forced to watch as the narcos dumped the bodies on the road from two trucks. Most of the bodies displayed signs of being tortured.
The gruesome scene played out yesterday early evening as many Mexicans were heading home from work in this Gulf coast city. Many of the bodies remained in the trucks that were abandoned while the rest were strewn on the road and symbolically placed nearby the city’s historic landmark the status of ‘Voladores de Papantla’.
Motorists took to twitter to warn other motorists to avoid the Manuel Avila Camcacho Blvd that passes nearby the city’s biggest shopping mall. Mexican authorities are reporting that 12 of the victims were women and the bodies identified thus far were all involved in organized criminal activity and had extensive criminal records.
Next week Veracruz will host state prosecutors from across the country that will meet to discuss the prosecutorial demands of dealing with the non-stop violence.
