MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in southern Guerrero state say the leader of one of Mexico's most violent vigilante groups has died.
The state prosecutors' office said Friday that Tranquilino Palatzin was drunk when he fell and hit his head on a rock.
He was the leader of the Peace and Justice group of the township of Chilapa. Like many factions, it is believed to be allied with a local drug gang.
Separately, police said they found the remains of four men in a wooded area on the southern outskirts of Mexico City. Those woods have been used in the past to dump bodies.
