Six people have been murdered in Mexico in the last few hours, including two deaths outside Gayosso, an upscale undertaker in southern Mexico City, said police on Monday.
Alejandro Murillo Rendon, 36, and his brother Jorge Murillo Rendon, 38, died after being attacked by two gunmen on a motorcycle in the Gayosso car park. Residents from the western state of Jalisco had come to mourn Pedro five year-old Ramon Felix Ferro, also from Jalisco, whose cause of death is unknown.
Also in Mexico City, police found a mutilated body in the north of the city. The body was in a series of plastic bags dumped in a cardboard box.
In Zapopan, part of the conurbation of Jalisco's capital Guadalajara, authorities found the dead body of Homero Duran Olazabal, 48, who had been shot twice in the nape of the neck. Duran's son identified him, but did not know why his father had been murdered.
Fransisco Solorio Arechiga, director of public security of Jalisco state, told the media that Vicenta Torres Torres, 45, had murdered her husband Jorge Lopez Jara, 50, by shooting him in the back, shoulder and head.
There have been 1,200 killings in Mexico since the start of 2007, most of them believed to have been linked to organized crime or drug trafficking, local media said.
