Bodies of 8 slain men found dumped with threatening message in Mexico's Oaxaca state


MEXICO CITY — Authorities in Mexico say the bodies of eight slain men have been found dumped in a southeastern town.

The prosecutor's office for Oaxaca state says in a statement that all eight victims were residents of the city of Cordoba in the neighboring state of Veracruz. Their bodies were discovered Friday in the Oaxaca town of Cosolapa, which is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) from Cordoba.

Officials say a warning message left with the bodies was signed by the pseudonym of a person who police allege is the head of a criminal group based in the Veracruz city of Orizaba. Authorities did not release the text of the threat.

Oaxaca officials say evidence indicates the eight men were killed in Veracruz and then transported to the dumping site.
