Juarez police: Mayor gets death threat

A decapitated pig's head wrapped in a blanket and accompanied by a death threat directed at the mayor of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, was found in a suburb of Juarez early Wednesday, a municipal police spokesman said.

In a sign of the increasingly uneasy times for Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz, a note attached to the pig's head read, "You have two weeks left to live," according to municipal police spokesman Jacinto Seguro.

The head was found by police at around 4 a.m. local time (5 a.m. ET), Seguro said.

In a press conference Wednesday, Reyes said that his security team was on heightened alert and looking into the death threat. CNN attempted to reach Reyes for further comment, but he was unavailable.
