Playa del Carmen city workers stumble upon remains of four bodies

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The dismembered bodies of four people had police blocking off a section of CTM Avenue. On Thursday morning, authorities were notified of the finding that was made by city workers.

A Solidaridad clearing crew from the Public Services department found the bodies around 9:00 a.m. while they were cutting overgrown city green areas. The group of workers were in an area of Villas del Sol when they made the discovery.

Elements from the FGE, along with personnel from the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo), arrived. The bodies were eventually removed.

On social media Thursday afternoon, the FGE posted “that the investigation related to the discovery of four lifeless males was started on the peripheral avenue between CTM Avenue and a green area in Villas del Sol, in the Municipality of Solidaridad.”

The federal agency added that “at first glance they do not show firearm injuries, but it will be the experts – after the autopsy – who will determine the cause or causes of their death.”
