(Newser) – Four women and a 14-year-old girl were found brutally murdered, with their throats slashed, in the Mexican beach resort of Acapulco yesterday, reports Reuters. All were connected to a local beauty parlor, although police say they don't have a motive yet. Three were found stripped and bound in the parlor, while the other two were discovered in other parts of the city—one behind a church and one in an abandoned car, the AP reports.
