Her body was found Saturday morning, according to the attorney general’s office in the northern Tamaulipas state. A message “attributed to a criminal group” was found next to her, the office said.

“The state government expresses its deepest condolences to the relatives and loved ones affected by these lamentable acts,” the office said, adding that it is investigating.

Earlier this month, attackers left ominous threats mentioning two websites on signs beside mutilated bodies in northern Mexico.

Much, much more at EMS News, including them bothering to investigate and report that the “attributed to a criminal group” was the Zetas.

      God Bless Maria and her family.

      More violence from Mexican drug cartels who mean business? Can’t say it’s a shock, but still a shame to see this type of blatant cruelty on display for all.
