The pit, located in the northwestern Mexican state of Sonora, turned out to be a makeshift crematorium, reportedly filled with wisps of burnt hair, bloodstained shirts, and charred human bones.

The grisly discovery was made by the Madres Buscadoras (Searching Mothers), a group of about 200 mothers, determined to find out what happened to their missing friends and relatives.

The women revealed the crematorium via a live broadcast on their official Facebook page.

Shocking footage shows the group approaching the burning pit as one of them says, “This is the grave where the bodies are burning and it is still burning.”

The smoking pit appears to be large enough to hold several bodies and reportedly smelled of burning human flesh as tufts of burnt hair blew in the wind and human bones littered the area.

Cecilia Flores Armenta, the founder of Madres Buscadoras de Sonora, told local media El Imparcial: “I’ve never seen anything like it. I felt weak and distressed at the sight of the burning bodies.”

Firefighters were called to the scene to put out the fire.

Police officers, who arrived at the scene, also discovered a charred spine, several burnt limbs and bloodstained T-shirts.

The Attorney General’s Office has launched an investigation to identify the estimated 30 bodies that were burned in the pit.

Alejandro Encinas, Mexican Federal Undersecretary for Human Rights, reported that some 85,006 people have disappeared in Mexico since 2006, and Sonora is one of the states with the highest number of disappearances.

He added that the use of makeshift crematoria by criminal organizations has increased dramatically in recent years with a 33% increase in 2020 alone.

Encinas believes that the increase is the result of “both the growing number of clashes between criminal organizations and the intensification of research efforts by the authorities.”
