Horrifying makeshift crematorium littered with ‘human bones & hair’ found by mums searching for missing cartel victims

A GROUP of mums who were searching for missing cartel victims has found a horrifying makeshift crematorium, littered with "human hair and bones."

The group of women made the grim discovery on April 21, after noticing the smell of burning fat, coming from a pit in the ground.

The pit, located in the north-western Mexican state of Sonora, turned out to be a makeshift crematorium, reportedly filled with clumps of burned hair, blood-stained shirts and charred human bones.

The grisly discovery was made by the Madres Buscadoras (Searching Mothers), a group of around 200 mums, determined to find what happened to their missing friends and relatives.

The women revealed the crematorium via a live broadcast on their official Facebook page.

Shocking footage shows the group approaching the burning pit while one of them says: "This is the grave where they burn the bodies and it’s still burning."

The smouldering pit appears to be large enough to fit several bodies and reportedly reeked of burning human flesh while clumps of burned hair blew in the wind and human bones littered the area.

Cecilia Flores Armenta, the founder of Madres Buscadoras de Sonora, told local media outlet El Imparcial: "I have never seen anything like this. I felt faint and distressed at the sight of the burning bodies."

Firefighters were called to the scene to put out the fire.

Police officers who also arrived at the scene, discovered a charred spinal column, several burned limbs and blood-stained T-shirts.

The Attorney General's Office has begun an investigation into identifying the estimated 30 bodies that were burned in the pit.

Alejandro Encinas, the Mexican Federal Undersecretary for Human Rights, reported that an estimated 85,006 people have disappeared in Mexico since 2006 with Sonora being one of the states with the highest number of disappearances.

He added that the use of makeshift crematoriums by criminal organisations has risen dramatically in recent years with a 33-percent rise in 2020 alone.

Encinas believes that the increase is a result of "both the increasing number of confrontations between criminal organisations and the intensification of search efforts by authorities".
