A corpse was located inside a cardboard container in the town of Coronitas, near Mexicali on Friday Feb. 16.
The report to the emergency service 911 was received shortly after 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon, indicating the presence of a suspicious cardboard container abandoned in an empty lot between ejido Heriberto Jara and Coronitas.
Immediately, agents of the Municipal Police arrived on site and confirmed the fact. A lifeless person was inside a black plastic bag. It should be noted that the sex of the victim was not immediately confirmed by the authorities.
The human remains were covered in a white powder, apparently lime, which is presumed to have been used to reduce foul odors.
Investigative experts were responsible for the fieldwork and forensics procedures on the site.
The body was transferred to Semefo for the practice of the necropsy, that could help to determine the cause of death.
The Attorney General’s Office of the State (PGJE), began with the corresponding investigation folder to integrate evidence that could lead to clarify this murder.
