“So far we counted 61 bodies,” said Guerrero state prosecutor ,Miguel Angel Godinez, to the Millennium television station in reference to the finding made on Thursday night.
“We are working on identifying how many are children, how many women and men” were in the group of bodies found, he said.
The prosecutor did not specify the causes of death of these people or if bodies were left in the crematorium when it was abandoned or were taken later, although explained that the bodies were apparently preserved with lime.
The discovery raised the fears of thinking that it could be a new case of appearance of corpses of victims of the Mexican drug cartels, but authorities have not yet identified any hypothesis.
The prosecutor merely stated that there are “signs and lines of inquiry into what happened” and that soon could be registered.
