At least 20 bodies found in western Mexico

Authorities found more than 20 bodies inside three abandoned vehicles in Guadalajara, Mexico, Thursday, state media reported.

The vehicles were discovered near a monument on one of the city's main avenues, the state-run Notimex news agency said, citing police sources.

Officials did not release the exact number of bodies found Thursday morning.

Jalisco state Attorney General Tomas Coronado Olmos told CNN affiliate TV Azteca that a message was found with the bodies, but he did not disclose what it said.

      Like a news magazine was described a few years ago – please "report the news and not make the news".

    Who's running Mexico; Their supposed Government or the Cartels?
    The US's focus is continually on the middle east, when it would be cheaper to run on Natural gas.
    Of course our Government is the one who supplied them with weapons, just as we do with other countries. Sad (smh)

    @Blue Mountain:
    Of *course* it's the cartels, and you're right: it *is* sad!

    A lot of bloodshed would be eliminated if marijuana were legalized; slap a tax on it and pay down our debt!

      BINGO! Just as ending prohibition put Al Capone and his mobsters out of business, so would legalizing what used to be a cash-crop, until a bunch of government misinformation came out, marijuana.
