The bodies of at least three men were found this saturday in a pit in Culiacán, reported the Sinaloa Attorney General’s Office.
The discovery was made through genetic studies carried out in clandestine graves discovered on June 1, after reports to the Police by several residents of the area who had sighted human remains, according to the media ‘El Debate ‘.
Among the three bodies found is that of a 20-year-old, reported missing by relatives six months ago. Likewise, another of the bodies belongs to a 21-year-old man, also wanted by his family.
The third body, extracted in “a visible state of decomposition”, has already been identified after forensic analysis, and his family has already claimed the body, according to ‘El Universal’.
Mexico notified in May more than 100,000 people missing and not located since 1964according to data from the official registry carried out by the National Search Commission that depends on the Ministry of the Interior (Segob).
According to the data sent by the Segob, a total of 100 thousand 012 people are in the status of “disappeared and not located”, specifically between March 15, 1964 and May 16, 2022, with a “disproportionate” rebound in 2006.
Faced with this reality, the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearances urged the Mexican authorities in April to take “immediate action” to end absolute impunity for the growing number of enforced disappearances and to adopt a national policy to stop this “human tragedy.” . (EuropePress)
