In the state of Veracruz four bodies of journalists were found back in 2012

Six male bodies have been found by Mexican authorities in Veracruz, Mexico - a day after five more were found near the same area.

The bodies were found dumped in the town of San Juan Evangelista in Veracruz, the prosecutor’s office stated, without disclosing further information.

The five bodies found the day before were some 75 kilometres from Xalapa, Veracruz’s capital.  A municipal police stated that the bodies were found with gunshot wounds to their heads.

Mexico is known as a dangerous location for people who get caught up between drug-gangs, especially the Jalisco New Generation Drug Cartel, the Zetas and the Gulf cartel. Journalists are also part of this battle, as dozen of deaths have been counted since 2010.

Furthermore, the 43 students who vanished in 2014 has yet to be resolved, raising eyebrows in several Mexican provinces. The 43 students had been allegedly handed over to a drug-gang by local authorities who killed them and dumped their bodies in the San Juan River.

More than 100,000 people have been found dead or gone missing in the area since 2006, due to drug violence relation.
