45 bags of human remains found in Mexico

The police in Mexico discovered 45 bags containing human remains in a ravine outside of Guadalajara, located in western region of country.

When the bodies were discovered, law enforcement officers searched for seven young contact centre workers who had been reported missing the previous week.

Both male and female skeletons are among the bones, but the total number of bodies has yet to be determined.

Due to the challenging terrain and inadequate lighting, the search is anticipated to continue for several more days.

In a statement, the state prosecutor’s office for the western state of Jalisco claimed that, following a tip-off in the search for the seven people, they had begun looking at the Mirador del Bosque ravine, where they found the bags that comprised body parts. This ravine is where they found the bags.

Together with the police and the crew of a chopper, firefighters and civil defence personnel were assisting in the recovery of the remains.

The first bag was discovered on Tuesday, but the investigation had to be restarted on Wednesday due to the challenging terrain and the lack of sunshine. According to the prosecutor’s office, the search will continue until all the remains are located.

The authorities have stated that they will continue investigating the number of deceased people, their identities, and the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

In addition, it was stated that the investigation into the locations of the seven people who had been reported missing would continue.

Even though it has not been determined how the victims came to be in the ravine just yet, it is essential to note that disappearance crimes are common in Mexico.

According to estimates provided by the government, more than 100,000 persons have vanished, many of whom were victims of organized crime. The perpetrators of crimes rarely face the consequences.

According to data collected by the government, many people have vanished since 2007, when the “war on drugs” was declared by former President Felipe Calderón.

One-fifth of those who were reported missing were younger than as much as 18 years old at time of their disappearance, and three-quarters of those who were reported missing were male.

The families of the missing claim that government is not making enough efforts to locate their loved ones and that officials are indifferent when they make missing person reports.

It was described as “a human tragedy of enormous proportions” by the United Nations.

The state of Jalisco is the epicentre of a bloody drug war, and some of the most prominent gangs in the region include the Jalisco New Generation cartel (CJNG) and their adversary, Nueva Plaza. Nueva Plaza broke away from the CJNG in 2017, which sparked carnage across Guadalajara, the capital of the state of Jalisco.
