Cartel dumps seven brutalised corpses with chilling message at tourist spot

The brutalised bodies of seven people have been found dumped at a tourist hotspot, with cartel involvement in the deaths more than likely.

Seven dead men were found dumped in the Huasteca region of Mexico, with the beautifully vibrant area taking a nasty turn after the butchered bodies were discovered there.

An ominous message was featured alongside the bodies found at the tourist hotspot, leading to cartel involvement due to the chilling warning left on the bodies.

The message scrawled across the badly damaged bodies points towards the involvement of a dangerous Mexican Gulf cartel, which tends to operate along the northern US border.

Seven men were left dead and butchered, with their bodies dumped in the idyllic tourist destination with a dangerous warning left on the bodies, which were seen to be heavily beaten and bruised.

The message "This is what happened to me for working with the Gulf," was etched across the bodies found at the tourist spot.

It marks a likely reference to the ultra-violent Gulf cartel, which just last month are said to have shut down dozens of towns in northern Columbia because their leader was extradited to the United States.

The chilling message left on the bodies was signed "Valles Operation O.B.," in apparent reference to a rival gang.

Prosecutors in San Luis Potosi said that the bodies did not appear to be from the town of Aquismon, where they were all discovered.

They added that the bodies could have been butchered elsewhere and then transported to the tourist hotspot, New York Post reported.

The dumping of bodies would appear to be another part of the Gulf cartel's fear tactics, which DEA Administrator Anne Milgram denounced, saying they had used "intimidation and extreme violence" as a way of controlling the area.

Milgram said: "For decades, the Gulf Cartel has used intimidation and extreme violence to maintain control of its territories in northeast Mexico and smuggle deadly drugs into communities across the United States."
