Human head left at Soriana in Chihuahua

Chihuahua --
A severed human head was found in the parking lot of a Soriana grocery store here about 8:00 p.m. Wednesday (Aug.8).

The head was left in an empty ice chest. A narcomensaje (executioner's warning) was with it. Authorities have not yet revealed the contents of the note.

The male victim has not been identified. Police conducted a search for other human remains in the area but found nothing.

Chihuahua, capital of Chihuahua state, has a metro population of 825,000 and is 235 miles south of El Paso, Tex. and the border town of Ciudad Juárez.

Soriana is Mexico's largest retailer, with 600 stores nationwide. A week ago corporate management accused defeated leftist presidential candidate Manuel López Obrador of inciting violence against the chain, and said that there had been 180 security incidents at its stores as of Aug. 1. Soriana claimed that in many of those cases the offenders indicated their support for the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), which captured second place in the country's July 1 presidential election.

PRD has denied the accusations. Soriana blasts Manuel López Obrador, accusing him of inciting violence against Mexican mega grocery chain.

The election results have been contested by PRD, and the issue is now pending before a Mexican federal court. A ruling which will officially certify the winner is expected in less than 30 days.

May 14 - Severed heads, hands found at Ciudad Juárez bar.
