Riviera Maya, Q.R. — More human remains have been found on a ranch near the Xpu-Ha region of Riviera Maya. Skeletal remains were located in a cenote Friday afternoon on a ranch south of Playa del Carmen.
The Solidaridad Secretariat of Public Security confirmed the finding of human bones, but did not provide details other than they have been determined to be more than two years old. Local media have reported the bones correspond to at least three people, a figure that has not been officialized.
In a brief social media statement Saturday morning, the FGE of Quintana Roo reported “Bone remains were located in a cenote in the vicinity of Rancho San Carlos in Solidaridad. Expert reports indicate that, due to their condition, they have been in the place for more than 2 years, apparently, without signs of violence.”
The agency also said that forensic analysis is being carried to determine identities.
Less than a week ago, another set of skeletal remains were found on a ranch near the area of Xpu-Ha south of Playa del Carmen. They were found late Saturday night on the San Josecito ranch along the federal 307 highway. Authorities have not provided a public update on the finding.
