Not just in Guerrero: La Barca, Jalisco, at one year

Mexico's organized crime victims are buried everywhere

Guadalajara -
One of numerous local narcofosas discovered a year ago, this one a little more than an hour's drive from the city of the tapatios, on the far eastern shore of Lake Chapala. No evidence remains of the savagery which took place here. Many of the dead have yet to be identified by forensic investigators. The La Barca sites were among the largest unearthed in Mexico in recent years, as the nation's drug war enters its eighth year in less than a month.
