In one of the most important tourist destinations in Mexico and in the middle of the holiday season, a dead man was left abandoned in front of a public clinic next to a threatening message.
He was beheaded, with his head left between his legs, his face was flayed off and his penis was left in his mouth. This is how the authorities found the abandoned body of a man in Cancún, Quintana Roo, one of the most important tourist destinations in the country.
At the stroke of midnight, the authorities received a report regarding the finding at emergency number 911.
The body was missing its head and left leaning against a fence in front of a public service clinic of the IMSS and was next to a threatening message saying: "Víctor Manuel Olivas Jalisca, you are next! Keep playing 'al verga' supporting the Jaliscos and you'll get fucked together with all those filthy 'putos'! They forget that dogs live here.This goes for all the 'culeros' who continue to support the Jaliscas".
The message refers to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel that entered Quintana Roo in order to dispute the plaza with groups linked to the Gulf Cartel, such as Los Taliban and Los Pelones. Also challenging a powerful local cartel headed by a former policewoman named Leticia Rodríguez Lara, known as "la 40", who would operate with the support of the Sinaloa Cartel and the Zetas Vieja Escuela.
This dispute has already left 215 people dead in the state, according to local media. In previous years, in comparison, the average was around 50 people.
The National System of Public Security and the National Crime Semaphore locate Quintana Roo as one of the most violent entities in the Mexican southeast, with regard to murder statistics.
