Mexico’s drug wars reach new heights: four men bound, gagged and thrown from 600ft bridge as 13 die in just ONE day

Four men were killed after being bound, gagged and thrown from a 600 foot high bridge, as Mexico’s bloody drug battles left 13 people dead in just one day.

The remaining victims were murdered in ever more disturbing ways, with police discovering one had been beheaded, before being scalped and his faced skinned.

Friday’s massacre in southern Mexico is the latest spike in violence since rival factions of the Beltran Leyva cartel began fighting over territory after leader Arturo Beltran Leyva died in a battle with Mexican marines in December 2009.

The unidentified men were dropped from the 600 foot high Solidarity Bridge near the Guerrero state capital of Chilpancingo.

Police added: ‘it’s presumed they were thrown alive from the bridge.
