Los Desaparecidos of Veracruz

Keep your hearts and prayers focused on the desaparecidos of Mexico, no matter what the rogue presidency in the White House does or says.

In Veracruz, a state in southern Mexico, a prosecutor announced the finding of a large area where bodies were dumped and 250 skulls have been unearthed so far, as well as other bones.

These people were probably victims of murders by the drug cartels.  They could have been robbed or kidnapped for ransom or punished for refusing to cooperate with the cartels or just bystanders.  Some may have been victims of warfare among various criminal factions

Thank you to Patrick J. McDonnell of the Los Angeles Times for this report.

President Enrique Pena Nieto has not yet commented.
