ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Mexican authorities have found 10 severed heads dumped outside a slaughterhouse in a town in northern Guerrero state. They are still looking for the bodies.

A statement from the Teloloapan police says the heads of seven men and three women were left with a message that appears to threaten the La Familia Michoacana drug cartel. The warning says: "This is going to happen to all those who support the FM."

La Familia is based in Michoacan state, adjacent to Guerrero. Both Mexican states have suffered in recent years from fighting among drug gangs. Authorities say La Familia has been severely battered in the fighting.
