Mexico City - Police in Mexico City say they have found the mutilated corpse of woman stuffed inside a suitcase abandoned at a subway station.

Authorities say the suitcase bore a hand-lettered sign referring to the Familia Michoacana drug cartel. Police say the sign read:

“Don't steal from the Familia Michoacana. You're next, Jonas.”

A police official who was not authorised to speak on the record said on Monday that the woman's head and hands had been cut off.

The cartel was once based in the violence-wracked western state of Michoacan, but has reportedly expanded to Mexico City suburbs.

The capital has largely been spared the cartel violence that afflicts many regions, but some happens. Last May, 12 young people were kidnapped from a Mexico City club and killed, apparently by a drug gang. - Sapa-AP
