    MEXICO CITY - It was the dead men who did the talking.

    And with their videotaped confession, the mystery may have been solved of what happened to 20 men who disappeared after going on vacation in Acapulco and being hauled away by gunmen.

    Under heavy military guard, forensic specialists have extracted 18 bodies from a mass grave in a coconut grove south of Acapulco after the videotape popped up on YouTube. In the grainy tape, two beaten, bruised men confess to killing the group of 20 and reveal where they are buried.

    On Thursday, investigators expanded the search area to about 2.5 acres.

    Alerted separately by an anonymous telephone tip, police initially on Tuesday found two corpses believed to be of the men who appear in the video. A note attached to their bodies attributed the slayings to one of the drug-trafficking gangs working in the area, and again pinpointed the burial site of the other victims. The 6-by-12-foot clandestine grave was found alongside the two dead men, and digging began Wednesday.

    Relatives of the missing 20, from the western state of Michoacan, will travel to the Acapulco area to attempt to identify the bodies, most found with their hands bound, said David Sotelo, prosecutor for the neighboring state of Guerrero.

    Death, Acapulco-style
    March 28, 2011 | From the outside, it looks like a small warehouse. But approach the building, and the smell of death is unmistakable.

    Mexicans squabbling over who gets to take advantage of STUPID AMERICAN ANTIDRUGS LAWS.

    One thing I do not understand though...

    They killed "20 men who disappeared after going on vacation in Acapulco"?

    Why?

    We'll probably never know, but that doesn't really make sense if we assume these men were victims of the war to control the Mexican drug trade.

    That's it. I am going to Hawaii to brave the radiation instead. We were gonna go down to Cancun in July, but I am not bringing my family down there right now. What a shame that the mostly good people of Mexico cannot capitalize off of tourist dollars that really help their people and economy. ~BH
