19 Bodies Found Near Mexican Border

The bodies of 19 have been discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico’s northern border state, officials reported Sunday. Authorities found 11 of the bodies in mass graves where they appeared to have been buried over two years ago. The other eight bodies were tossed near a road close to Rosales where they appear to have been tortured before being shot in the head. The area where the mass graves were discovered, Ejido Jesus Carranza, is located near the border with the United States. The area of sand dunes is sought-after spot for picnickers from nearby towns, just across the border from El Paso, Texas.
