The tweet and article describe the heads as “abandoned,” which is odd phraseology, but perhaps our Spanish isn’t very good. Our translation with the original beneath. From CNN Mexico:

Ten human heads, three women’s and seven men’s, were found this morning in the City of Teloapan, located in the northern part of the State of Guerrero, according to an official notice from the Secretary of Public Security and Civil Protection.

The heads were left outside of the city slaughterhouse, according to authorities.

After Chihuahua, Guerrero is the most violent state in the country, registering the highest number of organized crime-related murders, according to a report from the Office of the Mexican Attorney General. According to the federal government’s official analysis published in August 2010, what we’re witnessing is a confrontation between the Pacific Cartel and the criminal gang the Zetas.

(I’m not sure why the Pacificos, badly named, are a cartel, and the Zetas are a criminal gang, but there you have it).

Diez cabezas humanas, tres de mujeres y siete de hombres, fueron encontradas este domingo en el municipio de Teloloapan, ubicado en la región norte del estado de Guerrero, informó la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública y Protección Civil local en un comunicado.

Las cabezas fueron abandonadas afuera del Rastro Municipal, de acuerdo con las autoridades.

Después de Chihuahua, Guerrero es el estado más violento del país, pues registra el mayor número de muertes relacionadas con el crimen organizado, según un reporte de la Procuraduría General de la República. De acuerdo con un diagnóstico oficial del gobierno federal publicado en agosto del 2010, en esta entidad se enfrentan el cártel del Pacífico contra el grupo criminal Los Zetas.

The point is not to confront you, dear reader, with ugliness. Rather it’s to say, if it were here, there would be wall-to-wall coverage for days. In Mexico, not so much.
