5 bags of human remains found in Mexican tourist resort after cartel threats

Five bags containing grisly human remains have been found in a sunny tourist resort in Mexico.

The gruesome discovery was made on Saturday (July 23) in Manzanillo amid continuing drug cartel activity in Colima, the state where the resort is located.

Reports of suspicious bags were made to the authorities, with both State and Military Police arriving at a bridge in the Colomos district to find human remains.

The area has now been cordoned off while enquiries are ongoing.

The bags and their contents were transferred to the Forensic Medical Service so that autopsies and identifications can be carried out.

Manzanillo sits on Mexico's lavish Pacific coast and often ranks among the top resorts for international tourists to visit in the country.

Two other bags containing human remains were also found in Colima on Saturday, just a one hour car journey away from Manzanillo in Villa de Álvarez.

Passers-by noticed two suspicious bags inside a white Volkswagen that had been abandoned. They notified police who made the horror discovery when they arrived.

The Public Ministry has now taken charge of that investigation. They are still trying to work out how many people the remains belong to.

The discoveries came just days after a drug cartel left chilling messages on cars in Colima, threatening to "kill everyone".

The terrifying threat came from Los Mezcales, also known as the Colima Independent Cartel, a splinter group from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) who are considered Mexico's most dangerous drug trafficking organisation.

In a bizarre twist, the criminals also discussed the weight of their own genitals as they addressed prison guards.
