November 24th – Mexican authorities have found at least 113 bodies in a mass grave in Jalisco, state lawyer Gerald Octaviosolis said.
Solis said at a press conference on Sunday that 30 bodies were identified, including 28 men and two women.
The tomb was in the city of Elsart, southeast of the capital city of Guadalajara. Officials also said that another 25 bodies were found in another mass grave at Ixlahuacan de los Membrillo, about 19 miles south of El Salto.
A spokesman for the state law firm told CNN that it began excavating the grave on October 1.
Jalisco is home to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and is considered by the US Drug Enforcement Administration to be one of Mexico’s “strongest and fastest growing” drug cartels.
Jalisco officials unearthed 897 bodies from the mass grave between 2006 and September 30, 2020. This is the highest total in the country during this period.
