Severed head discovered in Tlaquepaque

January 9, 2014

A homeless man searching for scrap metal among the weeds of a vacant lot in Tlaquepaque’s Canal 58 neighborhood made a grisly discovery on Wednesday evening.

At around 9 p.m. Sergio Mejia Garcia, 25, came across a severed human head half wrapped in cloth and a black plastic bag.

The head, whose eyes were missing, was that of a young man aged between 15 and 25. Judging by the advanced state of decomposition, experts from the Jalisco Institute of Forensic Sciences (IJCF) estimated that it had been severed three to four weeks earlier.

It is believed to be the head of Juan “El Pelos” Pablo, whose decapitated body was discovered on December 12 just three blocks from where the head was discarded. Local police officers said Pablo was a local drug addict, Guadalajara daily El Occidental reported.

It is unclear who was behind the killing and no arrests have been made to date.
