Heads, Body Parts Found Around Ciudad Juarez

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico – CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (KRWG) Police in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, have found the dismembered bodies of four men scattered around the city.

Prosecutors spokesman Arturo Sandoval said police first found two heads and parts of two bodies at street corner in the southern part of the city, which is across the border from El Paso, Texas. Found with the remains was a handwritten message saying "To the New Juarez cartel, keep recruiting, we're waiting for you."

The New Juarez Cartel is a group that recently appeared, and which accuses authorities of favoring the Sinaloa cartel, which is fighting a bloody turf battle against local gangs for control of Ciudad Juarez.

The other victims' remains were found scattered elsewhere in the city later in the day.
