Authorities found at least five decapitated heads in the violent Tamaulipas state of Mexico, which is home to numerous Mexican drug cartels.

Infobae said officials found human remains and four decapitated heads placed inside a freezer on the Ribereña highway near the exit to Poblado Los Guerra in the municipality of Miguel Aleman early Sunday morning.

A cardboard with what appeared to be a narcotics message next to the cooler was left by Northeast Cartel assassins. According to local media, the narcotics communication was sent directly to the leader of an "antagonistic group," which is thought to be the Gulf Cartel.

Reports mentioned that the victims are members of the rival Gulf Cartel who were abducted, tortured, and assassinated in retaliation for the dismemberment of one of its members last Thursday.

According to military officials, one of the bodies might be a mechanic employed by the oppositional organization. The narco message said that more work is required, adding that they don't interfere with soldiers or innocent civilians.

The article continued by alleging that a particular "Captain Malaga" conspires with "those faggot Gulf Cartel members." to sell out the Northeast Cartel's agents. They had left their "mechanic in pieces here for you," the letter said.

A dismembered body was discovered in the middle of Los Leones Boulevard in Miguel Aleman municipality last Thursday afternoon. A driver who saw it reported it to the authorities.

Police discovered numerous objects scattered across the road at the murder scene. A sack sat on the ground next to a red cooler, a mutilated body wrapped in red fabric, and several pieces of cardboard bearing a narcotics message.

According to Borderland Beat, the cooler contained a man's chopped head with some of his skin still attached. Authorities also discovered further dismembered remains inside the cooler, believed to be those of the same victim.

The narcotics communication addressed to the Defense Ministry and army members apparently bears the Gulf Cartel's signature.

The letter claimed that the Northeast Cartel was responsible for the "chaos that went down in Mirador" and that their issue did not include any law enforcement authorities.

The Gulf Organization stated that its rival cartel wants to steal from and harass communities in addition to killing defenseless victims and families.

The Gulf Cartel then requested permission from Mexico's Ministry of Defense (SEDENA) to operate at night to "finish off" members of its rival cartels, assuring all personnel that they "will be respected."

Remains of the Gulf Cartel and several other Mexican drug organizations are said to have engaged in frequent turf wars in the Tamaulipas state of Mexico.

According to the Associated Press, the state's border cities serve as profitable channels for drug smuggling. The border towns of Matamoros and Reynosa are purportedly under the authority of the Gulf Cartel.

Local reports claim that since the Mexican government's offensive to apprehend Gulf Cartel leaders in both areas began, there has been a significant degree of violence in the two cities. The cartel reportedly split up into smaller factions as a result of these operations.

In August last year, Borderland Beat said three of the Gulf Cartel's rival factions declared that they had agreed to a cease-fire to halt the killings and gunshots in Tamaulipas.

The printed banners with messages like "Long live Peace!" that Gulf Cartel sections had erected in the border city of Reynosa and other cities had been verified by the Tamaulipas state police.

The Metros, the Scorpions, and the Reds, the three primary Gulf Cartel factions engaged in the turf battle, signed the banners, which were printed with red, white, and green letters resembling the colors of Mexico's flag. The Cyclones, a fourth faction, were not explicitly included in the pact.
