On February 11, 2021, Mexican police in the state of Jalisco discovered 18 plastic bags containing human remains.
Guadalajara is notorious for being the home of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, one of the fastest growing drug cartels in Mexico. It has earned a reputation for its brutality and meteoric ascent to power.
According to a statement released by the Jalisco state prosecutor’s office, the Guadalajara police patrolled Zapopan, an area within Guadalajara’s metropolitan region, and found a human limb close to a highway overpass.
This grisly discovery prompted the Mexican authorities to pursue a general search of the area, which eventually ended up with them finding 18 black plastic bags in a ravine in Zapopan. According to Mexican authorities, the bags were tied up and filled with human remains.
