12 decapitated bodies

Mexican authorities found 12 decapitated bodies on the Yucatan Peninsula Thursday, but have yet to find the heads, AFP reported.

Photos of the crime scene showed 11 headless corpses stacked on top of one another in a field outside the city of Merida, the capital of Yucatan state. Some of the bodies had tattoos and were jumbled amid blankets and tarps. One was completely naked, while the others wore denim clothing, AFP reported.

A twelfth body was found in a town called Buctzotz, 45 miles northeast of Merida.

It appeared to be the largest single group of beheadings in recent years in Mexico. The tactic has become more frequent in gangland-style killings, and the largest previous instance of decapitations occurred in 2006, when gunmen tossed five human heads into a bar in central Mexico.

"We believe that the 12 executions were an isolated incident and not part of a strategy to destabilize the state," Yucatan state prosecutor Jose Guzman told reporters.

The federal attorney general's office confirmed there were 12 dead and it was taking over the investigation — a move that usually indicates a case involves high-caliber weapons or drug trafficking, both federal offenses.

Merida had largely been spared the drug-gang violence afflicting many other Mexican cities.

Horror food stories you don't want to hear about!


It's frequently on the news: the horrific things food manufacturers do to the food in China. List them here - - The "man" roast pork bun where the actual meat is human meat! - Coating cement on ducks, so that when the cement dries, they can pull off duck hairs with ease - Spraying bug spray on dried salty fish so that bugs would stay away from them.

Soy sauce made from hair (yes, hair on our heads!). - Chinese sausage made with pork, mouse meat, and red coloring. - Moon cake filled with last year's lotus filling and yolks.

Other Stories!

You know those really soft, comfy silk comforters that they make in China? Recently a manufacturer was discovered stuffing the comforters with USED pads. They got caught when customers saw blood started seeping through the comforter's lining. The manufacturers were collecting these used pads from public restrooms.

The restaurants in China never provide napkins/tissues, so the customers have to bring along their own paper napkins/tissues. Apparently some paper napkin manufacturers in China are "recycling" used toilet paper and using them for manufacturing "new" paper napkins. YUCK!! That's why I was given the advice of buying Western brand paper tissues or napkins only. Or bring your own from your own country. The usual giveaway is the rather nasty smell when you open the packet.

Messin with Sasquatch ?

The thawing process was sped up and the exposed head was found to be "unusually hollow in one small section." An hour of thawing later and the feet were exposed - and they were found to be made of rubber.
Matt Whitton, an officer who has been on medical leave from the Clayton County Police Department, and Rick Dyer, a former Georgia corrections officer, announced the find in early July on YouTube videos and a Web site.
"Everyone who has talked down to us is going to eat their words," Whitton said at the time.
Phone calls to Whitton and Dyer went unreturned on Tuesday. But the voicemail recording for their Bigfoot Tip Line - which proclaims they search for leprechauns and the Loch Ness monster - has been updated and announcing they're also in search of "big cats and dinosaurs. If you see any of those, give us a call."
On Tuesday, Clayton County Police Chief Jeff Turner said he has not spoken to Whitton but processed paperwork to fire him.
"Once he perpetrated a fraud, that goes into his credibility and integrity," Turner said. "He has violated the duty of a police officer."

Puerto Rico corpse kept upright for 3-day wake

A Puerto Rican man has been granted his wish to remain standing — even in death.
A funeral home used a special embalming treatment to keep the corpse of 24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina standing upright for his three-day wake.
Dressed in a Yankees baseball cap and sunglasses, Pantoja was mourned by relatives while propped upright in his mother's living room.
His brother Carlos told the El Nuevo Dia newspaper the victim had long said he wanted to be upright for his own wake: "He wanted to be happy, standing."
The owner of the Marin Funeral Home, Damaris Marin, told The Associated Press the mother asked him to fulfill her dead son's last wish.
Pantoja was found dead Friday underneath a bridge in San Juan and buried Monday. Police are investigating.

Yesterday's Answer: Marie Davaillaud

Some people collect stamps; others postcards. She collected insurance policies on her friends, colleagues and employees. One employee in particular, Harry Wright, a slow witted handyman had been taken under Her wing when his mother died at her request. Mrs Wright also entrusted his inheritance; a few thousand dollars and the family home to her care. It did not take her long to work her way through Harry's fortune and after his house mysteriously burnt down and the insurance money was spent, Harry's usefullness was rapidly waning. She was convicted of second degree murder and served thirteen years of a life sentence. She was not so lucky; she was executed in the electric chair at New York's Sing Sing Prison on 27 June 1935. Her last words were "goodbye darlings" to the weeping matrons who had accompanied her on the last mile.Who am I?

Who am I?

Friday's Answer: Gertrude Baniszewski (Criminal) - Sylvia Likens (Victim)

Born in Brittany, France, in 1803, She once complained, "Wherever I go, people died." Sure they did. Because she enjoyed poisoning them. As a teenager, as she started her career as a domestic, she also started experimenting with poison. Eventually she wiped out the family of seven for whom she was working. Most of her subsequent employers suffered the same fate. Curiously, no one suspected her of any wrongdoing because of her pious demeanor. Who am I?

Who am I?

Yesterday's Answer: John List

On Oct. 26, 1965, Indianapolis police were called to a rundown house on East New York Street where they found the body of 16-year-old on a bare mattress in an upstairs bedroom. Only one adult resident of the house, she told investigators she had been caring for the 16yr old while her parents were out of town -- and that the teenager had been attacked by a gang of boys.
But a coroner's examination would show that she had been systematically beaten and malnourished for weeks. Her body was covered with sores, burns and bruises. She had been branded, and the words "I am a prostitute" were etched on her stomach.
Although her injuries were horrific, the most shocking fact about the case was that the torture had gone on so long and had involved so many neighborhood children, who had joined in on the "punishing" of her. Neighbors had heard strange noises and visitors to the home had seen at least some of her injuries. Who am I and Who was my killer?

Answer to yesterday's "Who am I?" :
Mary Bell

Today's Who am I?
Teenagers' bond of friendship was so strong, they committed murder when they were threatened with separation. After 50 years, this classic case is still an obsession.

For just a moment, a thick silence oozed onto the packed dirt path that cut through the undergrowth of the steep Port Hills at Cashmere. It seeped into the ground and welled up again, lapping at the body of the 45-year-old woman who lay there, her skull crushed by a half brick wrapped in an old stocking. It rose in a torrent, swallowing the two blood spattered young girls who stood there
