Mexico: The killings of four youths, whose bodies were cut to pieces and left in plastic bags, has horrified the city of Cuernavaca, a year after a similar crime there led to the creation of a national crime victims’ movement
Prosecutors in Morelos State said that the victims, ages 14 to 21, were found in plastic bags along with a threatening note from a drug gang. The city, once a weekend retreat for wealthy Mexico City residents, has become the scene of drug gang turf battles in recent years. In March 2011, the son of the poet Javier Sicilia and six friends were found dead there.
