The bags were found in the depths of a 40-meter ravine located in the Zapopan municipality, which is considered to be a suburban area of Guadalajara, an expansive industrial center.
“Forty-five bags with human remains have been extracted that belong to both male and female people,” the state prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Thursday.
The missing person’s reports of each of the seven individuals had been filed independently on disparate dates; however, upon investigation, it was revealed that they were all employed at a singular call center located proximal to the site at which human remains were detected.
The forensic specialists are yet to determine the identity and the number of victims contained in the bags.

Preliminary investigations indicate the potential involvement of the call center in illegal activities. Local media outlets have reported that the authorities have seized items such as marijuana, a cloth, and a cleaning rag exhibiting traces of blood. Additionally, documentation pertaining to possible commercial endeavors has been discovered.
The law enforcement officials stated that certain human remains discovered within the bags exhibited features that seemed to correspond to those of the absent juvenile individuals.
The recovery efforts involve coordination among firefighters, civil defense personnel, and a helicopter. It is expected that the ongoing operation will extend through the coming days.
