The dead bodies were found in the streets of the city, The Associated Press reported, which added that two bodies were dumped at two spots and four people were found shot to death individually.
Elaborating further, the bodies of a man and a woman were found dead in a taxi on Aug. 21, AP reported. And the dismembered bodies of two men were found in plastic bags elsewhere, suggesting drug cartel violence.
AP reported that a man was shot to death, and the Quintana Roo state prosecutors’ office said another man was killed while on a hammock. Another was found shot and covered with a plastic bag.
The killings didn’t take place in Cancun’s hotel area along the scenic beaches.
