Sale of videos showing mob killing of 3 rapists being investigated by Mexican police

TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, Mexico – Police said Wednesday they are investigating the  recording and sale in local markets of a grisly video that shows a mob beating  and burning to death three men suspected of raping and killing an Indian woman  in southern Mexico.

A voice on the video says, “Gasoline on everything!” as the beaten suspects  lie on the ground. Then the tape shows a man in flames, tied to a tree, writhing  as he apparently burns.

One suspect is heard crying and pleading for mercy while voices in the  background speak the Indian language of Tzotzil.

Tzotzil is spoken in the highlands of the southern state of Chiapas, where  tapes of the attack were being sold in street markets for 15 to 20 pesos ($1.15  to $1.50) apiece.

The Chiapas state attorney general’s office said all three men died. It is  investigating both the mob attack and the sale of the video.

Voices on the tape allege the men were caught dumping the body of an Indian  woman they raped and killed.

Mob violence against crime suspects is not infrequent in Chiapas, where  small, remote villages often have little police presence.
