“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
Four bags were found at the entrance of Colonia 5 de Mayo, presumably with warning messages.
Four bags presumably containing human remains were found at the entrance to the 5 de Mayo neighborhood in this city, which caused an intense mobilization of security forces.
Around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, locals in the area reported that there were four black bags that had cardboards with warning signs on them. They immediately alerted the authorities.
Agents of the Municipal Police, State Preventive Police and elements of the Investigation Police of the State Attorney General’s Office went to this point where they confirmed the discovery of the four bags that apparently contained human remains.
In each of the bags was a poster with the message: “This is going to happen to the human smugglers who sold out, they were trusted and betrayed CJNG”, the security guards proceeded to cordon off the area.
They were awaiting the presence of forensic agents to lift the bags and confirm if they were indeed human remains, and it is unknown how many people were killed.
For its part, it is expected that the FGE will be able to initiate an investigation into these events in the hope that clarification will be achieved in a situation that has alarmed the inhabitants.
