Evidence suggests some Mexican Indians dug up graves, dismembered bodies and reburied them

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (CP) 6 days ago

MEXICO CITY Archaeologists have found evidence that pre-Hispanic groups in Mexico's Baja California peninsula dug up their decomposing dead, dismembered the bodies and then reburied them.

A report by the National Institute of Anthropology and History says Indians at the Conchalito site apparently did that to release the dead from what they considered a state of suffering.

The report says many of the 157 graves studied since 1991 show evidence of the practice. The graves date from about A.D. 300 to the 1500s.

Archaeologist Alfonso Rosales-Lopez said Tuesday that bodies were dug up after a few months, once decomposition loosened joints enough to allow for dismemberment.
