Five headless bodies found near Acapulco

Police in Mexico's Guerrero state are investigating the killings of five men found decapitated near the resort town of Acapulco, authorities said Saturday.
The men were between 20 and 30 years old and were found in a car in the region of Costa Grande in the subdivision of Tamarindo, less than 3 miles from Acapulco, Guerrero state police officer Jorge Tellez told CNN.

All five showed signs of torture and their bodies were riddled with bullets, police said.

Three of the men were killed Friday, investigators said. They did not know when the other two died.

All were Mexicans, according to Guerrero state public security and civil protection spokesman Arturo Cuellas.

Three of the victims were identified as Jonathan Gomez Tellez, Jose Pastor Valencia and Osiris Villanueva Vargas. Police are working to determine the identities of the two others.

Guerrero state police said they did not know the motive of the killings.

Guerrero is in southern Mexico and is contentious territory for drug cartels. The state is near a major drug trafficking artery for such drugs as cocaine, which flow through Central America from Peru and Colombia.

    You are all dumb. Arguing on a thread over a very stupid situation. Unless these people are directly connected to you, just leave it alone. Your opinion means very little.

    Well at least this time all the victims were male. I am tired of these males who have to kill including women and children in it. Since violent crime is committed by males 90% of the time and it is usually males killing males, leave women and children out of it and simply kill each other. Maybe if you kill enough other males off, you will stop killing each other but I am not going to hold my breath waiting for that to happen. I think that if there were only two males left, one of you would have to kill the other so that you would be the last male standing.

    Well Jay, I'd love to tell you why we believe that illegal invasion of America by Mexico is a bad thing, since you ask. It's about the curruption and drugs that they bring, overwhelming the courts and the neighborhoods. it's about pimping out little girls. We are real serious about that. It's about destroying a hundred years of progress establishing rights for workers in a democratic workplace. Need any More reasons?

    OK Jay, About the white dude that killed his girlfriend last week. We are going to convict him and give him a needle for lunch. Now in Mexico, if his family had enough money. . . you know, he'd sneak out of prison while still on the books as a prisoner, assuming they didn't buy off the jury, assuming there was a trial. So that is the kind of patriotic rabble you want to import from foreign lands? People that support that sort of justice? Because soon as they get here they start gaming this system with aliases and running from police. Maybe you want them for neighbors but not me.

    Regarding a poster's comment about immigrants taking care of children and elderly in America – Those immigrants are being paid and they have a choice to work somewhere else, nobody is holding a gun to their heads. If you think U.S. citizens are exploiting immigrants, then maybe those immigrants should migrate somewhere else! I know of people who work in the U.S. and send their money back to their home country! Regarding a poster's comment about "White" people being bigots- Bigots come in all colors/cultures! This news article states that Mexican citizens are killing Mexican citizens! Why is the U.S. blamed for the woes of other countries?!! People flee their countries to come to the U.S. and then they blame the U.S. for their lot in life! It doesn't make sense!
