Mexico-The beheaded body of a top law enforcement officer in Mexican was found Sunday.
Investigators found the decapitated body of Jose Antonio Archi Yama, commander of the Quintana Roo State Police, wrapped in a gray and red sheet about 6 feet from the side of the road. Yama was found four days after he was kidnapped, tortured and killed by cartel gunmen in Cancun.
The men from Cartel Jalisco Nuevo Generacion allegedly took Yama on Tuesday, triggering a massive land and air manhunt for the missing inspector.
Yama’s family reported him missing two days after he failed to come home from his job about an hour away in Playa del Carmen.
The brutal murder was just the latest disturbing incident in an area that has seen a sharp rise in violence as cartels have fought for control.
