5 killed, dismembered on outskirts of Mexico City

October 05, 2017 - 6:49 PM

MEXICO CITY - Prosecutors on the outskirts of Mexico City say they are investigating threats written on a sign left with the bodies of five people.

The prosecutors' office in the State of Mexico, which surrounds the capital, said the bodies were found in two cars on Wednesday.

The office did not disclose the contents of the message, but said the killings may have involved a dispute between gangs.

Photos published in local media indicated the sign blamed those killed for extorting money from bus drivers and killing drivers.

The photos showed the bodies of the four men and one woman had been hacked up, with a pile of arms left in the front seat of one vehicle and a severed head left on the hood of another car, beside the hand-lettered sign.
