Prosecutors in Mexico are investigating the identities of five men whose remains were stuffed into a vehicle in the popular resort city of Cancun.

The Quintana Roo state prosecutors’ office indicated that the bodies were discovered early Wednesday, but the identities of the victims have not yet been determined, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The latest case comes in the midst of a surge in violence and drug-related murders in the once peaceful city.

On Tuesday, prosecutors announced that three police officers in Cancun were arrested for their roles in the abduction of four Colombian citizens.

A growing number of Colombians have been involved in loan sharking and other activities in Mexico that make them vulnerable to extortion or abduction.

Last week, hitmen on jet skis opened fire on a roving vendor on a beach in Cancun’s hotel area. Nobody was injured.
