Juarez, Mexico – Mexican authorities say the army discovered a grave holding at least 18 bodies near a ranch in the northern border state of Chihuahua.
A statement Monday from state prosecutors says soldiers found the bodies over the weekend and informed police so they could oversee excavation of the graves.
The ages and genders of the victims are unclear and the bodies are being sent to the coroner's office in Ciudad Juarez.
Prosecutors say police are still searching for other bodies at the burial site.
