There MAY BE VERY graphic photographs that accompany some articles in the body of this report. It is not our intention to sensationalize. We include these photos in order to give to you, the American public, a clearer understanding of the seriousness of the situation in Mexico and Central America.
**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity. Some items may be from notirex.com, lapoliciaca.com or historiasdelnarco.com. Some incidents of violence may not be included here due to the large number of death reports.
FRONTERA COMALAPA, CHIAPIS
The deputy chief of the municipal police here was traveling in a bus outside of town. When he saw a military roadblock, he exited it before the checkpoint and tried to flee. He was quickly caught, and found to be carrying a total of 35 small packages of cocaine.
The state attorney general reported the status of a 15 year old girl that survived a shootout. She received 10 bullets to different parts of the body. The shootout about 6 pm Monday killed 2 other teens with a third one dying in the hospital of a gunshot to the head.
An anonymous tip led authorities to a clandestine grave where 3 bodies have been discovered so far. Authorities continue searching.
Two brothers aged 18 and less than 12 years old, were shot and are in grave condition. The younger was shot in the head and the other in the clavicle. A search by 10 patrol units failed to locate any suspects.
Municipal police on patrol were attacked by gunmen in a van. This resulted in 100 soldiers and state police, and included 3 state police helicopters. Vehicle checkpoints were established to keep out strangers while checking for the suspects. Two were detained and questioned.
A group of gunmen shot the police director of Hostotipaquillo, who was traveling with his wife and two officers. In the shootout police chief died, a bodyguard and a bad guy. The chief’s wife and other bodyguard were seriously wounded. Another of the gunmen was apparently wounded, as he was seen with blood on adjoining streets. A search failed to turn up any of the gunmen at the time. A subsequent report identified 8 suspects detained, 2 for the killing of the chief and the others who served as lookouts. State Police secured several bulletproof vests, grenades, rifles, including a .50 caliber, helmets and phones, as well as four vehicles, all reported as stolen.

Two human skeletons of people who presumably were male and apparently were shot, were found yesterday afternoon near here. One skeleton was 80% complete whereas the other was scattered over an area apparently because of animals. One skull showed a bullet hole.
SAN BERNABE, NUEVO LEÓN
A father and his two grown sons were executed here on Wednesday. The 3 men were naked and had been shot in the head. These were 3 in a sting of killings in January, where 6 have died and 2 more were kidnapped.
