      Indeed, I'm blinded with detailed informative information. My mind is an overwhelmed raging torrent of informed thought..

      To sum this up, Mexicans found a mass grave. I don't think I did a good job. It's about the same length.

    Tim.....it was a "mine ventilation shaft" Obviously not a grave sight! Why don't you read before attempting to be a smartass?

      Kristy: it was a grave "sight' but not a grave "site". English can be difficult. . .

    Mass grave, that is no big surprise but good to hear to consider safety measure when traveling there. I personally don't travel there.

      The same things happen here, are you saying you feel safe here?

      "same things happens here" Okay, show me where and when it happens here then you might have a point. Her concerns are valid regardless of your ridiculous statement.

    Fifty-five bodies in a mine shaft that was used as a mass grave? I hope someone
    will look into this. This smells worse than my tuna and chocolate sauce casserole.

    @Tim Buckley... why are you even commenting. Unknown mass graves in current day are news worthy, as it implies that something out of the ordinary has occurred.

    Shouldn't breaking news provide a LITTLE more than just a body count? We know you news people love dead bodies, but at least offer a little more information. Lame.

      Yeah, a little more information would be great.

      If it's breaking news, they might not have any more details than just a body count.

      breaking news usually implies that it's 'breaking' and more details will follow. Duh.

    Funny, Tim. You have to understand these aren't considered 'graves' by the people who left the bodies there. More like a 'hiding place' than a 'grave'.

    Tim– try reading again. The bodies were in a mine ventilation shaft, not a grave. They are calling it a "mass grave" because of the 55 bodies.

    So could this be linked to the drug cartel?

    • Crysti

      Almost certainly something to do with the cartels...could also be some terrible santeria ritual like the one back in the 90's (80's?)
