Over 4,000 bone fragments were discovered on a ranch in the Mexican state of Coahuila, exemplifying yet another occurrence of mass killing carried out by the Los Zetas drug cartel with the aid of crooked government officials.

Since 2015, grieving parents and human rights organizations have been conducting searches on the ranch known as Patrocinio, located outside of San Pedro Coahuila.

The fragments were recovered in an area known as La Laguna, a place that fell victim to an astounding spike in brutal violence since 2006 when war between the Los Zetas and Sinaloa cartels erupted.

The probes led to the discovery of thousands of human bone fragments, which government officials reported were located near the surface and were not buried in mass graves.

Forensic analysis showed that the bones were severely damaged due to excessive heat from the apparent fuels used to burn the bodies.

The Coahuila government indicated that the 3,488 bone bits stemmed only from three bodies. The government has tried to refuse the allegations previously made about Coahuila being home to various killing fields.

Coahuila officials attempt to lessen the attention being paid to news of the recovered bone fragments in the southern part of the state occurred after officials investigate the extermination and incineration of over 300 victims in the rural town of Allende.

According to Breitbart Texas, around 150 of the victims were incinerated by Los Zetas at a Piedras Negras state prison with the assistance of unscrupulous government leaders.

Although Coahuila has made it a point to seek out and apprehend some low-rank Zeta members in connection with the carnage, officials who were aiding the cartel have managed to avoid prosecution.
