Tamaulipas state authorities rushed to the scene and set up a perimeter while forensic investigators documented the crime scene and collected the bodies.
The cartel gunmen wrapped one of the victims in a blanket, a second one plastic, and a third was dumped tied and semi-nude.
All three victims showed signs of torture, law enforcement sources revealed to Breitbart News.
