Tijuana, Mexico, Jun 21 (EFE).- The decapitated bodies of four people, including three police officers, were found Wednesday in northern Mexico near the U.S. border, authorities said.
The four individuals went missing Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning their bodies were found wrapped in blankets in the Pacific coast city of Rosarito and their heads in bags in Tijuana, said Rosarito police chief Valente Montijo.
He identified the dead as police officers Ismael Arellano Torres, Jesus Hernandez and Adrian Ventura, and civilian Fernando Aguilar, a Mexican-American resident of Arizona.
According to Montijo, the cops and the other man - who was a friend of one of the officers - went missing after the three police answered a call about an attempted kidnapping in the Huahuatay district of eastern Rosarito.
The Rosarito police chief said that on Tuesday he received a report of an operation in the city by some 100 agents of the AFI - Mexico's FBI. Those individuals, who were identified by the credentials and uniforms this group typically uses, were - according to witnesses - the ones who abducted and killed the police officers.
The Baja California Norte state prosecutor's office and federal authorities were investigating the case.
Rosarito is located some 25 kilometers (15 miles) southwest of the border city of Tijuana, where the Tijuana cartel headed by members of the Arellano Felix cartel operates. EFE dec/mc

Nice. I guess the druggies have been inspired by their jihadi role models.
I've made my last turista trip down to TJ and Rosarita Beach. That's it. Done.
Give them jobs here. /sarc.
Me too. We used to love going down to La Fonda restaurant in Rosarita, and of course junk shopping in TJ. No more though, it's getting a little too crazy now.
TJ itself is so much more cleaned up then it used to be - the shopping district is not at all scary (as I remembered it being in the 80's and early 90's). But I agree, I can't think of anything there that I couldn't live without for the rest of my life.
Isn't this MS13's M.O. as well ?
Well let's just throw the gates wide open so we can spread this crap far and wide.
Me too. What do you think about San Felipe? Is it safe?
I thought La Fonda closed up a few years ago. That place was GREAT. Bucket of clams, fantastic dinner, music and beer while watching the sunset from the outdoor patio. It was as good as it can get.
Old Mexico Ping!
Narcodemocracy. Coming soon to a town near you (if shamnesty gets legalized).
Either that or jihadists are in Mexico--and heading north.
Send this Mexican vermin to Iraq and let them duke it out with the Iraqi terrorist vermin. Birds of a feather so to speak.
That's a good idea.
We know that Russian smugglers are working in Mexico so I don't think it's much of a stretch to consider the possibility of Chechen jihadis.
That's a real puzzle
