Eleven people were found shot to death around Mexico on Saturday, some bearing signs of torture and left with threatening messages emblematic of drug violence. Four of the victims were found in a car in the western city of Apatzingan, along with a message threatening the Zetas, a group of hitmen for the Gulf cartel. The message was signed La Familia, a drug gang battling for territory in western Michoacan state. Another slain man was found in the western port city of Lazaro Cardenas, also with a threatening message from La Familia to the Zetas.
