Five women brutally murdered in Mexico beach resort

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Five women, all apparently connected to a beauty parlor, were found brutally murdered in the Mexican beach resort of Acapulco on Saturday morning, state police said.

The semi-naked and bound bodies of two women and a 14-year-old girl were discovered in the salon in the early hours of Saturday morning. All three had their throats slashed.

Police later found the corpses of another two women with cut throats dumped in the streets. Mexican media said both victims worked at the beauty parlor. No motive was given for the killings.

The lead of this story says the five women were found “brutally murdered”.

Are there ever people found “kindly murdered”?

Were the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis “kindly” executed and burned to destroy their bodies?

I’m not sure how this got to be about the Nazis.

No, there are no “kindly” murders, but I do think some are more brutal than others and when five women get their throats slashed I don’t have a problem with using that word: GBU Editor
