Snapshot of the State- Prohibition’s Burial Ground

The War on (Some) Drugs creates a massive body count. In Mexico, the bodies are falling faster than they can be identified and buried.

Morgue workers place a coffin holding an unidentified body into a grave at San Rafael cemetery on the outskirts of the border city of Ciudad Juarez. The bodies of 36 unidentified people, killed in drug-related incidents, were buried on Tuesday after being held in the city morgue for several months without being claimed by relatives.
