Mexican authorities are investigating a grisly discovery. Mexican soldiers found them after getting information from drug hitmen they captured.

Troops dug out 18 bodies from 11 graves in the town of Palomas in Chihuahua.

It's not immediately clear who was buried in the graves and how long the bodies have been there.

Drug violence has killed more than 31,000 people across Mexico since December of 2006.
