[Mexico:]14 bodies found in minivan outside Nuevo Laredo City Hall, according to Tamps. gov't

Mexican authorities confirmed a ghastly find outside of the Nuevo Laredo City Hall, where 14 bodies were found inside a parked vehicle Tuesday morning.

About 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, the bodies were found stuffed inside 10 garbage bags, according to information released by the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office, known as the PGJE.

The vehicle, which was described as a green 1996 Voyager minivan with no license plates, was parked in front of City Hall.

The bodies’ identities were not released, but the men were described as being between the ages of 30 and 35.

The slayings are attributed to fighting between rival criminal organizations, but Tamaulipas officials wouldn’t disclose whether the killings were carried out by the Zetas, who control the city’s turf, or one of their rivals.

Despite having sent out a news release about the killings on Tuesday afternoon, the PGJE later took the release down from their website for reasons unknown.

A source outside law enforcement but with direct knowledge stated that the 14 bodies belonged to members of the Zetas who had been killed by members of the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion, also known as the Mata Zetas, a branch of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The source said that last week, the Mata Zetas had killed 16 Zetas, but no information regarding those slayings had been made available by the PGJE or other Mexican law enforcement agencies.

The US Government should publish a video about not putting so many people in vans. There aren’t enough seat belts.

I had a `94 Plymouth Voyager.
Broken headbolt, a half dozen factory recalls, the rubber trim melted, the back hatch might spring open while on the interstate, & other problems I’m repressing.
I think the van killed them. It was the Anti-Chrysler.

Damn. How do you get 14 people in a minivan? There had to be some serious lap-sitting going on in there.

Probably, they used those big 50 gallon contractor bags, but can you imagine how humiliating that must be? I mean, a lot of those fellas didn't even get their own bag to get dumped in. Plus a 1996 Chrysler mini-van?

Robbed of their dignity.

They didn't say "14 intact bodies," now did they?

I have a dream that these groups will someday kill each other off. I know, it won’t happen, but I can dream.

The cartels make most of their money by selling illegal durgs here. Then they pay or shall I say give a little bit of that money, which is still big money to people like us, to lawyers. then the lawyers give a little bit of what they get, still big money to us, to progressive poltilcal champaigns and their lapdog media. So that the status stays quoa.

A chainsaw, machete or hacksaw? I hope the killers used 'flex' bags because I'm sure those bodies were bloated. A box or two of Arm & Hammer baking soda placed in the van would've been a nice touch, too.

The Sinaloa Cartel is the group Obama and Holder armed with 2000 assualt weapons as part of the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation. Maybe the Sinaloans are dropping off these bodies as good faith offering to Obama. They are saying in effect: "Check this out. We did good, huh?"

Got an AFRC Travel Advisory yesterday that prohibits travel by military personnel and civilian USAF personnel from travel in Mexico, except to the Yucatan. Big change, I knew there was something driving it and this looks like it might be related.

And for the inevitable guy who’s gonna say, “Hey, that’s confidential information!” - no, it ain’t!
