Three victims of the 'Flying Gangland Killers' were chucked out of planes in on Thursday. Flying gangland killers stepped their efforts - the body of a man who was half naked was seen being thrown out of a plane on a roof in EL Chapo’s home state. The man is believed to have been the third victim in a day. Statements from the witnesses revealed the man’s body landed on the roof of a hospital in the Mexican area that is prone to crime on Thursday morning.
The man’s body landed on the roof of an IMSS hospital in the town of Eldorado located in El Chapo's home state of Sinaloa at around 7.30am local time, an official who declined to be named told Reuters.
According to witnesses who were standing outside the health center a plane was flying low over the hospital and a person was thrown out, the health official revealed, adding that he could be the third in a string of plane killings that day.
Sinaloa state prosecutors issued a statement saying that the body was clothed only in a red soccer jersey and socks, and had signs of severe trauma consistent with impact on the hard surface. However, authorities are yet to establish whether the victim was alive when he was tossed from the plane.
Reports from El Expres indicated that there were no bullet wounds found medical investigators as they tried to determine the time of death. The hospital also reported that two other bodies were also found in the town. The crime-wrecked town lies around 40 miles south of the state capital of Culiacan.
Statements from the local media indicated that those two bodies were thrown from the same plane as the body that landed on the hospital. The press also revealed that the bodies had been collected by local gang members. The state prosecutors said they had no evidence of other bodies having landed. The hospital officials also pointed out that the state prosecutor's office was at the scene. The prosecutor's office did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The official also indicated that the town is an agricultural area and planes are regularly used for fumigation.
