Police find decapitated body of Mexico newspaper editor

Now, tell me, isn't this a good reason to secure our borders? There are maniacal drug lords decapitating whomever they please, on a daily basis, just across our border. Time to take charge, Washington D.C., and do one of the few things the Constitution allows you to do!

(CNN) -- The editor of a Mexican newspaper was found dead, her body decapitated and with a note next to it, officials said.

Maria Elizabeth Macias Castro, 39, was the editor in chief of the newspaper, Primera Hora.

Her body was found Saturday morning, according to the attorney general's office in the northern Tamaulipas state. A message "attributed to a criminal group" was found next to her, the office said.

"The state government expresses its deepest condolences to the relatives and loved ones affected by these lamentable acts," the office said, adding that it is investigating.

Earlier this month, attackers left ominous threats mentioning two websites on signs beside mutilated bodies in northern Mexico.
