MORELIA, Mexico — Mexican authorities have found the decapitated bodies of five men and one woman in a western state known for drug-gang violence.

Michoacan state prosecutors say the bodies and heads were found Thursday inside a car abandoned in the capital city of Morelia.

Prosecutors say that several of the bodies have a "Z" carved on their backs in an apparent reference to the Zetas drug gang.

The Zetas have been involved in some of the bloodiest confrontations with the Michoacan based La Familia drug cartel in a drug war that has cost more than 15,000 lives in Mexico in three years.

The Zetas are based is the border state of Tamaulipas across from Texas.
