Massacre in Boca del Rio, Veracruz, Mexico

Last Wednesday local authorities of the state of Veracruz, Mexico witnessed a macabre discovery. Police discovered two abandoned trucks that carried 40 dead bodies; 35 of them had been hogtied with zip-ties and the remaining 5 had been butchered to pieces, in the city of Boca del Rio.

The majority of the executed were half-naked and their faces showed signs of brutal torture. The executioners wrote the words: "POR Z" (which translates to "for being a Z", in other words, for being a member of Los Zetas Cartel) on every victim's body. Authorities mentioned that among those dead there were several Municipal Police Agents who had been abducted weeks prior to the discovery of these bodies, and several of the other victims were underage teens.

The forensic service declared that 39 out of the 40 victims had been strangled to death and the reaming 1 was shot to death.

Along with the dead bodies, authorities found a message tied to the back of one of the trucks. The message read as follows: "NO MORE EXTORTION, NO MORE DEATHS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE! ZETAS OF THE STATE OF VERACRUZ: THIS WILL HAPPEN TO YOU. AND TO THE PEOPLE OF VERACRUZ, DON'T PAY ANY FEES TO THE ZETAS, ALL THEY DO IS EXTORT YOU!"
