      Nine bodies found inside SUV near Ciudad Victoria on Easter Sunday

      Authorities are investigating a gruesome discovery made south of the border just outside Ciudad Victoria on Easter Sunday.

      The Tamaulipas Attorney General's Office (PGJE) confirmed the bodies of nine men were found inside an SUV abandoned along the highway.

      Investigators reported the 2012 GMC Yukon was found at the Kilometer 7.5 marker of the Ciudad Victoria-Soto La Marina around 10 p.m. Easter Sunday.

      The SUV was found in a rural community named Ejido Santa Clara just outside Ciudad Victoria.

      The names of the nine slain men were not immediately available but PGJE officials said the majority of them had been dismembered.

      PGJE officials said the bodies were sent to a forensic lab for identification and autopsies.

      The license plates to the SUV were registered to a couple from Midland, Texas.

      Action 4 News spoke to the owners who said they sold the SUV and it was stolen before the new owner had a chance to transfer the title.

      Ciudad Victoria is the capital of Tamaulipas and is located about 200 miles or about a four hours south of Brownsville.
