On December 20th, Mexican officials reported having found six bodies hanging from three overpass bridges, two of which were above highways running to the airports in La Paz and Los Cabos.
Law enforcement had to remove the dead bodies early Wednesday morning but have yet to give details on what happened to the deceased men.
La Paz and Los Cabos are popular tourist beach destinations with millions of visitors each year. Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis said online via his Twitter that the incident was being investigated and that he “condemns these acts and any expression of violence.”
2017 was Mexico’s deadliest year since 2011 with 9,916 murders in the first six months of 2017. That is a 30% increase from the previous year.
