Eight human heads were found in Durango

Police found the heads of eight people located throughout different parts of the city of Durango this Tuesday morning. Anonymous tips led the local police to the initial findings. The first call, around 7:00am local time, led investigators to a bridge where two heads were found.

Almost an hour later, a second anonymous tip led police to another bridge where an additional two more were located. Twenty minutes after the second phone call, a third call was made and led authorities to find two more. Almost an hour after the third finding, gardeners working near a highway found the last two heads, making the final total of eight.

The identities of the dead are currently unknown. All are reported to be male between the ages of 25 and 30. It is believed that they were all murdered within the last 24 hours.
