A staggering aftermath of violence met authorities on a Mexican highway Sunday morning, on the road between Monterrey and Reynosa. Forty-nine bodies were found at the entrance to San Juan, missing their heads, hands, and feet.

The Associated Press reports that “100% Zeta” was tagged with spraypaint on a nearby archway. While the first suspects are the brutal warring drug cartels, state Attorney General Adrian de la Garza told AP that he did not rule out the possibility that the victims, discovered 75 miles southwest of the Roma, Texas, border crossing, were U.S.-bound migrants.

Authorities are conducting DNA tests to identify the unrecognizable victims, who are thought to have been killed within 2 days before they were discovered.

Something is seriously ailing the U.S. Border Patrol.

The Associated Press reports that the agency has seen the biggest spike in suicides among agents in at least 20 years.

The news service reported that at least 15 agents have committed suicide since February 2008. It said few left notes.

“Federal officials insist the deaths have nothing to do with the agency, which has doubled in size since 2004, or the increasingly volatile U.S.-Mexico border,” AP wrote.

“But administrators have quietly undertaken urgent suicide-prevention initiatives, including special training for supervisors, videos about warning signs and educational programs for 22,000 agents nationwide.”
