20 bodies found in 2 graves in western Mexican state
Authorities in Jalisco say that 20 bodies have been found in two clandestine graves in separate locations in the cartel-plagued state in western Mexico.
Jalisco state attorney general Raul Sanchez Jimenez says 10 bodies were found in Tlajomulco and 10 were found in the Santa Elena de la Cruz neighborhood of Guadalajara. He says they are two separate cases.
Sanchez said in a news conference yesterday that on the night of August 5 local authorities reported a man had been shot near the Tlajomulco property and later died after seeking medical attention. Authorities identified him as the leader of the local cell of the Jalisco New Generation cartel.
