On the same story, El Diario reports (from unofficial sources) that the slogan written on the bodies of the victims said "this is for those who continue not believing..." This was the same message that appeared in early 2008 on the list of police officers killed or slated to be killed that appeared on the police memorial in the early days of the increased violence in the city. The bodies also were reported to have the heads of pigs and scorpions marked on them. The scorpion is a symbol long used to indicate the Juarez cartel (http://www.diario.com.mx/nota.php?notaid=544d9ee7977a381cccdbdde5d0697a77). Thanks to Molly Molloy for this.
