A vehicle filled with bodies was abandoned outside a governor’s office in Mexico this week, according to reports.
The disturbing incident unfolded at around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning in the main plaza of Zacatecas, the capital of a state in north-central Mexico bearing the same name.
A Mazda SUV was driven into the Plaza de Armas and parked near a Christmas tree in front of the Government Palace, according to El Universal.
The driver reportedly exited the vehicle and ran down an alley.
Ten bodies were later discovered inside the SUV.
The deceased appeared to have suffered severe physical abuse, authorities say.
“They came to leave them here in front of the palace… bodies, apparently beaten, with wounds,” said Gov. David Monreal.
Monreal blamed ongoing violence in his region on a “cursed inheritance” from prior administrations.
“Thus it is that we must entrust ourselves to God. In the name of God and let’s go to the activities!”
Gov. Monreal later announced that suspects had been arrested.
“We have achieved the arrest of the alleged perpetrators linked to the events that occurred this morning in Zacatecas. We will not rest until peace and security return to our state,” Monreal said.
