More Than 150 Skulls Discovered At Crime Scene!

Police in Mexico found the most gruesome crime scenes in the country’s history. In 2012, police officers in Mexico found more than 150 skulls inside a cave in southern Chiapas State.

The skulls were taken to a forensic laboratory where anthropologists and other crime lab experts have been studying the skulls.

Now, after ten years, the anthropologists found out that the skulls came from a sacrificial ritual during the year AD 900.

Experts who analyzed the skulls reported that the victims were “probably ritually beheaded and the skulls put on display on a kind of trophy rack known as a tzompantli.’’

The New York Post reported:

When Mexican cops stumbled upon a pile of about 150 skulls in a cave near the Guatemalan border a decade ago, they thought they were looking at a crime scene.

In a way, they were correct, but it has turned out to be a very cold case dating back a millennium.

It took 10 years of tests and analysis to determine the toothless craniums of men and women were from sacrificial victims killed between AD 900 and 1200, the National Institute of Anthropology and History said Wednesday.

“Believing they were looking at a crime scene, investigators collected the bones and started examining them in Tuxtla Gutierrez,” the state capital, the institute, known as INAH, said in a statement.

The police in 2012 weren’t being stupid; the border area around the town of Frontera Comalapa in southern Chiapas state has long been plagued by violence and immigrant trafficking. And pre-Hispanic skull piles in Mexico usually show a hole bashed through each side of every skull, and were usually found in ceremonial plazas, not caves.

But experts said Wednesday the victims in the cave had probably been ritually beheaded and the skulls put on display on a kind of trophy rack known as a “tzompantli.”
