3800 Bone Fragments Found in Mexican Cartel Killing Field

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — More than 3,800 human bone fragments have been recovered from a ranch in the Mexican state of Coahuila pointing to yet another chapter of the mass exterminations carried out over time by the Los Zetas cartel with the help of corrupt government officials.

Since early 2015, human rights groups and grieving parents have been carrying out searches in the ranch known as Patrocinio near the town of San Pedro Coahuila, information released by the Coahuila government revealed. The area where the fragments were found is part of the region known as La Laguna, a place that saw a spike in violence since 2006 when hostilities between the Los Zetas and Sinaloa cartels began.
