(Newser) – Mexican soldiers acting on information received from captured cartel members have made yet another grisly find. At least 20 bodies were found buried at a ranch in Chihuahua state, AP reports. Authorities are still digging in the area and trying to determine how the 19 men and one woman were killed. Hours earlier, the newly appointed female police chief of a town in the state was killed by gunmen in two trucks who opened fire on her car.
