Five Human Heads Found in Central Mexico

And it just keeps getting worse for Mexico lately. CNN reports that five human heads were found in ice chests under a ficus tree in the central Mexican state of Jalisco, police said. Police discovered the heads beside a road to Guadalajara on Tuesday morning, according to the report.

This appears to be the latest indication of drug cartels fighting for supremacy in battles that have left thousands dead and have created nothing but negative headlines for Mexico since. This latest news is particularly startling because the heads were found near the tourist destination of Guadalajara. Previous incidents occurred right around the U.S. bordering Mexico towns, but this latest news indicates that the violence could be spreading into tourist areas, which could spell absolute disaster for Mexico, especially heading into the Spring Break season.
