More Violence in Embattled Suburbs

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 05 March, 2011

(Acapulco, NA 5 March) Yesterday morning at 8:20, the outlying community of Emiliano Zapata witnessed a burst of gunfire that resulted in two dead, two injured and six damaged vehicles. One of the victims had been dismembered. Seven hours earlier, a decapitated body was dumped by a busily traveled thoroughfare. In El Cayaco, a town several miles outside of Acapulco, police found another person who had been executed, drug gang-style. Other incidents included the explosion of fragmentation grenades and the discovery of other persons who had been murdered. Drug violence was also uncovered in Taxco, Chilpancingo and Petatlán, other towns in Guerrero state.

As in almost all of these incidents, drug messages are left behind, and the bodies of the victims usually show signs of extreme cruelty and no respect for human life. And as in almost all such incidents, no suspects have been identified, and the crimes are expected to go unsolved.
