Mass Grave Holds 38 Bodies in Mexico

A mass grave containing 38 bodies has been found in the northern Mexican state of Neuvo Leon. Officials think drug gangs used the remote site to torture and kill victims, finding blood and traces of gasoline in the earth. It’s the third mass grave found in Nuevo Leon, one of the hot spots on Mexico’s disturbingly violent war on drugs. The site featured a ramp into a pit, and investigators believe the thugs dragged their victims along the ramp to the pit, where they were tortured, and some perhaps burned. Diggers are searching for more bodies.
