On Saturday, Mexican authorities released a statement saying that they have found the remains of 167 people in a cave in the state of Chiapas, southern Mexico.
The remains were found late Friday on the Nuevo Ojo de Agua ranch. This area is known to be used frequently by Central American migrants who travel north. All of the bodies were stacked on top of one another inside of the cave.
Over the last two years, Mexican authorities have uncovered numerous mass graves of people in Northern Mexico who have been killed by drug cartels. Although there were no visible signs of violence reported, authorities state that they will not discard any line of investigation. The remains have been relocated to the state capital, Tuxtla Gutierrez to be fully examined.
No new information has been released pertaining to the identification of any individual that was discovered.
