Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The body of a man wearing a Lázaro Cárdenas del Río taxi uniform was found shot to death in the Marseille II neighborhood of Playa del Carmen.

The man’s body was discovered Monday afternoon along the roadway that leads to the city’s sanitary landfill. He was left on the side of the dirt road. Reports say the body was already in a state of decomposition, making it difficult to identify.
