Two men were found hanged from a bridge at Kilometer 8 on Chamapa – Lechería highway in Atizapán, Estado de México at around 6:30am today. The victims were approximately 25 to 30 year old and were first shot to death then hanged by their necks from the bridge with thick plastic. Authorities recovered several undisclosed caliber casings from the scene.
Executions like that are usually carried out by organized crime groups (drug cartels) but they usually also leave a message (narcomensaje) to claim responsibility for the killings. In this case, no narco card was found.
