Is Cancun Safe? 5 Bodies Found in Vehicle Amid Growing Violence in Mexican Beach Town

Police were investigating after five bodies were found Wednesday morning stuffed into an abandoned automobile in the Mexican resort town of Cancun. Cancun, once heralded as a safe destination for Europeans, Mexicans and Americans alike, has increasingly faced security threats and drug-related killings in recent months. Earlier this week, three local police officers were arrested in the disappearance of four Colombians from the region.
