35 bodies found in mass graves in Mexico

Amman, Mexican authorities have discovered the remains of 35 people in mass graves in violent Jalisco state, on Mexico’s central Pacific coast, officials said.

Prosecutor Gerardo Octavio Solis said most of the bodies were located at a ranch in the town of Zapopan, according to France 24 on Sunday.

Among the dead, “27 of the bodies had been tied up when killed. And we have two people identified at this time,” Solis noted in a news conference.

The number of dead could still rise as the forensics team wraps up processing of the site, he warned.

“We are digging more than three meters deep. We are also using heavy machinery, with engineers to do structural calculations as we don’t want to weaken some of the perimeter walls,” he added.

Solis said the skulls of seven other people and other human remains were discovered on the premises of a house located in Guadalajara, Mexico’s second most populous city.
