Mexico City:

Six mutilated bodies were found Thursday in a vehicle in southern Mexico, authorities said, as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador accused a popular television show of glamorizing the violent drug trade.

The body was found in a plastic bag inside a car in Chilapa in the state of Guerrero, prosecutors said, without confirming reports that the severed head was placed on the roof.

Findings of mutilated corpses dumped in public or hung on bridges have increased in Mexico in recent years as drug cartels seek to intimidate their rivals.

In January, 10 bodies were found in an abandoned sports utility vehicle in front of the governor’s palace in the historic center of the northern city of Zacatecas.

In June 2021, two heads and other bodies were left at a polling station in the border town of Tijuana on election day.

Nationwide, more than 340,000 people have been killed in a wave of bloodshed since the government deployed troops to fight drug cartels in 2006.

On Thursday, Lopez Obrador denounced the television series on platforms like Netflix, saying they presented a pink version of the drug dealer’s lifestyle.

The show featured “a group of drug traffickers, with actors, men, beautiful women, property, the latest cars, jewelery, designer clothes, power,” he told reporters.

But they don’t care about “the destruction especially of young people. And we’re talking about thousands of deaths. In the United States, it’s a serious problem,” he added, referring to victims of drug overdoses.

Lopez Obrador took office in 2018 championing a “non -bullet hug” strategy to tackle violent crime at its roots by fighting poverty and inequality with social programs, rather than with the military.

He has called on the United States to invest in regional economic development instead of sending armed helicopters and other weapons to arrest drug traffickers.
