The drug violence in Mexico will probabyly continue to rage on a long time, but this right here is downright ratchet!
Fifteen bodies, all but one of them decapitated, were found early on Saturday in the Pacific resort city of Acapulco as drug violence in Mexico intensified.
The victims, all male, were discovered at dawn near a shopping mall along with threatening hand-written messages that are typically left as a calling card by drug cartels, authorities said.
At least a dozen more bodies were found at several scenes of violence around the city early on Saturday, local media reported in more examples of drug gang skirmishes.
The messages found near the headless bodies were signed by Mexico’s most wanted man, Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, the leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel that is fighting rivals over the area, police added.
The half-naked bodies were mutilated and badly beaten, and machetes appeared to have been used, police said.
“This is a war that has been growing for months, not just in Guerrero but across the country,” local government spokesman Manuel Nava said of the state that includes Acapulco. “We are witnessing the breakup of these organized crime gangs,” he told Mexico’s Foro TV channel.
Acapulco is a bustling metropolis with beaches and a nightlife 250 miles from the Mexican capital.
Yeah, we think we’ll be finding somewhere else to vacation til the whole Tony Montana sh*t dies down…
