Mexico police make creepy discovery of at least 75 bags of dismembered human remains buried in a clandestine grave after residents reported foul smells
- The discovery was made last week in Zapopan, Jalisco after police officers in the area of La Primavera were warned of a foul odor
- It is not clear how many bodies make up the 75 bags, but eight intact bodies were found among the remains
- The area has become entangled in a continuous peat war, the Jalisco New Generation and the Nueva Plaza cartel
Since last week, at least 75 bags of disintegrated human remains have been discovered by the authorities in western Mexico in a clandestine cemetery.
Residents warned the local police about a foul odor coming from a lawn in La Primavera, a neighborhood in the municipality of Zapopan. Authorities from the Jalisco Forensic Science Institute, Civil Protection and Fire Department dug the first three bags last Tuesday.
The effort increased the following days as the team digs through a secret hole of 32 feet deep. During a search Sunday, the researchers dug up more bags of body parts, bringing the number to 75.
According to Mexican outlet La Razon, Jalisco, head of state security, Macedonio Tamez Guajardo, reported that at least eight intact corpses were among the remains, although it is not clear how many bodies make up the 75 bags.

Forensic experts are still trying to identify the other bodies that have been taken apart.
& # 39; It is a very complicated forensic job because the corpses must first be assembled as quickly as possible. Then they have to identify them, & # 39; Tamez Guajardo.
In May, the authorities in Zapopan dug through a ditch near El Campanario and removed 27 bodies from a mass grave. Researchers also found seven human skulls and various other human bones.
The area is embroiled in an ongoing grass war between the most powerful criminal organization in Mexico, the Jalisco New Generation and the Nueva Plaza cartel.
The nation set a record for murders in the first half of 2019 with 17,608, 5.3 percent higher than in the same period of 2018 when 16,714 people were killed. It is the deadliest first half since the government began to keep official figures in 1997.
The country with nearly 125 million people now sees 100 deaths a day every day.
