Mexican federal police guard the home where
authorities discovered 36 bodies buried beneath a patio. The
tallest building stands on the same property where the remains
Mexican federal police have reported discovering
mass graves containing numerous unidentified human bodies
including two severed heads, three torsos and limbs. Many
believed to have been tortured. Locals fear that
a fifth of the dead
were beheaded or otherwise mutilated.
Most of the victims are
indeed attributable to gang rivalry and the driving philosophy
of drug war managers Mexican cartels and gangs. The theory was
too let the bad guys kill each other off. But innocents are
regularly mowed down, caught in urban crossfires or the victims
of "mistaken identity" shooting. It has put a serious dent in
tourism for Juarez and El Paso according to the Mexican/American
Chamber of Commerce.
Juarez police put the number of bodies at 36 for
this one event. All the most recent victims remains so far have
been found in two clandestine graves in the backyard of a Juarez
home in the 1800 block of Cocoyoc Street in the Cuernavaca area
of Juarez and in the yard of a home on Pedregal street in La
Cuesta area of the city.
A high ranking law
enforcement official in Juarez who will remain anonymous by
request believes there will be many more mass graves yet to be
discovered. They currently have a new report of a new grave
field of death which the informants claims there are more than
50 victims and says they are all woman.
As reported earlier
the Journal learned that Mexican federal police raided the home
and seized a large amount of marijuana and arrested two people,
Francisco Javier Chavez Nieto, 47, and Sulema Yanir Felix
Pinuelas, 37, According to the Mexican federal Attorney General.
The Mexican federal
police investigating this mass grave site is the same police
agency charged with investigating murders and kidnappings
throughout the country of Mexico as well as the massive
sex-related serial killings of young women in that city. Back in
1993 was the first year that the mass rape-serial murders of
young women in Cd. Juarez became widely publicized. Those dead
numbered more than 600.
Families of missing
relatives are trying to determine if any of the bodies are their
missing relatives. Juarez authorities claim dozens of anguished
people from as far away as Mexico City, Torreon, Coahuila and
the United States have made inquiries. These people are
searching for loved ones who had earlier vanished into the
border city’s violent streets.
Paso Journal has reported that on the US-Mexico border, where
powerful drug cartels and there enforcers murder people on a
regular bases our investigation shows that during the last
several years, hundreds of people from Tijuana to Matamoros have
been forcibly taken by heavily armed men, many believed to be
the infamous “Los Zetas.” This much feared group are believed to
be the elite "special forces" of the Mexican military, trained
in the U.S. at the School of the Americas at Fort Benning,
Georgia and sent to "wipe out" powerful Mexican drug cartels.
Investigators say the dangerous bands of ex-military elite
forces are operating not only in Mexico but in Texas and other
parts of the United States unchecked. These rogue Mexican
commandos blamed for hundreds of killings and kidnappings along
the U.S.-Mexico border has carried out at least five
drug-related slayings as far north as Dallas, a sign that the
group is extending its deadly operations into U.S. cities, U.S.
law enforcement officials say.
There is a list of over 200 missing persons who
disappeared in Cd. Juarez. The FBI has identified 32 of the
victims as being U.S. citizens. Juarez newspapers say that the
actual number of disappeared or missing persons in Cd. Juarez is
much higher but many people are frightened to report cases to
the authorities. Estimates of Cd. Juarez’s disappeared surpass
1,000 individuals if both men and women are counted.
founder of the Association of Relatives and Friends of
Disappeared Persons in El Paso, said it was an anonymous
telephone tip he received that led Mexican police to the house
at 1847 Cocoyoc street.
Mexico's attorney general in Juárez
said they could not comment on the case.
"I received a phone call from an informer that at
such and such a warehouse where they recently picked up
marijuana, you will find some of the individuals that are on
your list," Hervella said.

Hervella said it
wasn't easy to persuade Mexican officials to dig up the patio
because "we've gone on wild-goose chases before."
Hervella said he
told association members to have patience because the bodies at
Cocoyoc street are in skeletal form and it may take some time
before they can be identified. But he said the discovery was
exciting news for families who want to know what happened to
their loved ones.
To fully appreciate the scope of the drug
related violence in the border region, over a 1,000 drug related
murders were reported in Tijuana from 2000-2008. Official
Chihuahua state government figures reported in the Cd. Juarez’s
El Diario newspaper registered a total of 1,000 or more murders
in Cd. Juarez from 1995 to the end of 2007. In Sinaloa state,
the birthplace of important border cartels, the press has
reported close to 20,000 murders from 1980 to 2008. During the
first two months of 2008 alone, murders were registered in the
conflictive state, a place where rival bands of gunmen kill for
control of the drug-producing Sierra. Mexican officials say the
