On Sunday March 18, 2012 ten human heads were found in the street of San Felipe de Jesus, in the municipal seat of Teloloapan, the colony of Mexicapan, Mexico. Seven were male heads, three were female heads.
The severed heads were lined in a row with two narcomensajes (warnings from Narco rivals) placed before them. The Google Translate translation of the main message is:
“This going to happen anyone who supports the “F.M” Fucking Kidnappers of shit, stop living off the community (citizens). Your daddy has come. fucking kidnappers, extortionists. Attentively. “Guerrero United” and you follow your shit of “F” anywhere you hide we are going to find you dog and you too “BEBA 212.”
According to coroner’s initial estimate, the severed heads belonged to people between 20 and 35 years of age. Who they were involved with and what their jobs were is unknown.
The police and Mexican Army initiated the operation “Security Warrior” the task of which would be to locate the decapitated bodies belonging to the severed heads. Security was tightened in and around Iguala Teololoapan and Arcelia in the Tierra Caliente region, which are considered some of the most violent in the state of Acapulco, Mexico.
Many thanks to portalgod20 for translation of the narcomensajes.
According to Mexican media, the 10 heads on a sidewalk belonged to people employed by a local drug lord. The police confirmed that they were beheaded with a chainsaw and had their tongues ripped out while still alive. The act was meant to be a warning to the drug lord by a rival drug cartel to pack his bags and leave.
