Mexico, 31 bodies found in secret graves ANSA news agency

(ANSA-AFP) — TLAJOMULCO DE ZÚÑIGA, FEBRUARY 16 — Thirty-one bodies buried in two secret graves have been discovered in western Mexico, in an area hit by organized crime-related violence. “We have already counted 31 victims,” ​​said Jalisco Prosecutor Luis Joaquin Mendez, adding that the authorities had found elements that would allow half of the bodies to be identified and then handed over to their families.

A first grave was found on February 1 in the town of San Isidro Mazatepec, in the municipality of Tlajomulco de Zúñigan. After several days of research and the recovery of several sacks of bodies, a second burial was found there.

The state of Jalisco, controlled by the powerful Cartel de Jalisco Nouvelle Génération (CJNG), is one of the states hardest hit by organized crime-related violence. In 2022, 301 bodies were discovered there, spread across 41 secret graves, compared to 544 remains in 2020, the highest number to date.
