The dismembered bodies of four men have reportedly been discovered at a busy Spring Break hotspot.
The grim find happened today (Thursday, March 24) in Mexico, leading to the National Guard being called in.
The grim news has been reported by local Mexican news outlet Noticaribe, and took place in the popular party district of Villas del Sol, Playa del Carmen at the height of the popular celebration.
The bodies were only discovered when a group of sanitation workers stumbled across them.
It is thought that all four of the victims were male.
As of yet, no local Mexican officials have commented on the distressing news.
However, local police have now erected a cordon around the scene and the Mexican National Guard has been called in to assist inquiries.
