Eight bodies were discovered on the streets of the Mexican resort city Cancun, prosecutors said Tuesday. Including two of which were dismembered and shoved in plastic bags.
Authorities made two of the eight discoveries in the trunk of a taxi, Rivera Maya News reported. A man and a woman were found dead inside the vehicle’s trunk parked outside the Chedraui de la Multiplaza shopping mall, according to the report. The taxi driver fled the car before police arrived.
Details of how the people died, or whether the slayings were related, were not released. None of the deaths occurred in Cancun’s beach-side hotel zone. The U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory earlier this month, telling travelers to “exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime.”
