Mexico authorities discover 113 bodies - including 30 that have been identified - and additional human remains in secret mass grave
Authorities in the western Mexican state of Jalisco have recovered 113 bodies and additional human remains from a clandestine grave that was discovered in October.
State Attorney GeneralGerardo Solís announced Sunday night that forensic workers were able to identify 30 of the victims, including 28 men.
Solis said that all of the individuals had been reported missing.
On October 1, investigators searching the body of a missing person were led to the pit inside the private property in El Salto, outside the city of Guadalajara.
Authorities have yet to identify the owners of the property located in the El Salto neighborhood of Los Sabinos. The first human remains were located buried in between a pile of dirt and cement.
The state is home to Jalisco New Generation Cartel, one of Mexico's most violent and powerful. More bodies have been found in secret graves there than in any other state in recent years.
该州是墨西哥最暴力和最强大的卡特尔之一哈利斯科新一代卡特尔(Jalisco New Generation Cartel)的所在地。近年来，在那里的秘密坟墓中发现的身体比其他任何一个州都多。
Blanca Trujillo, who leads the missing person's investigative unit at the attorney general's office, added that authorities had also located the human remains of 25 people at a mass grave in the municipality of Ixtlahuacán de los Membrillos.
司法部长办公室失踪人员调查小组负责人布兰卡·特鲁希略(Blanca Trujillo)补充说，当局还在伊斯特拉瓦坎·德洛斯门布里洛斯(Ixtlahuacán de Los Mbra illos)的一个乱葬坑找到了25人的遗骸。
According to Mexico's Interior Ministry, from 2006 through September 30 of this year, 897 bodies had been recovered from secret graves in Jalisco, 605 of those during the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador who took office in December 2018.
根据墨西哥内政部的数据，从2006年到今年9月30日，在哈利斯科的秘密坟墓中发现了897具身体，其中605具是在2018年12月上任的安德烈斯·曼努埃尔·洛佩斯·奥布拉多(Andrés Manuel López Obrador)执政期间发现的。
The state state of Jalisco ranks first in Mexico with 3,568 cases of involving missing persons and victims who have not been located over the last two years.
In late October, at least 59 bodies were recovered from a grave site in the neighboring state of Guanajuato.
Mexico has struggled with a staggering number of disappeared people.
The federal government reported in October that more than 75,000 people have disappeared since 2006. Last year had the highest total, with more than 8,300 missing people.
Since 2006, 4,092 secret graves have been found with some 6,900 bodies across all of Mexico.
Authorities report that 186,206 people have been reported missing since 1964, and only 112,035 have been located, including 104,953 who were found alive.
