Mexican police commander killed

A senior police commander's bullet-riddled body was found in the same spot where an apparent hitlist naming 26 officers was found days earlier, police said Thursday. Roberto Ramirez, who headed up the Delicias precinct, was the sixth Ciudad Juarez officer killed this week. He was abducted late Wednesday and his body was found hours later, city police spokesman Jaime Torres said. Ramirez's body was left near a dog racetrack where the bodies of four civilians were found Monday, along with a hitlist that included the names of 26 officers. One of the four had been decapitated, and a Santa Claus hat had been placed on his head. A fifth man who survived was left bound and gagged next to the bodies.
