CANCUN, Mexico —

Police in Mexico have found the bodies of five men and two women at a house in a low-income neighborhood of the resort city of Cancun.

The director of the Quintana Roo state detective agency says the victims' hands, heads and feet had been tied up with packing tape, and they apparently were asphyxiated. Arturo Olivares Mendiola says the bodies were found Sunday.

The bodies had been left on a patio of a house located some distance from the city's tourist zone.

Neighbors told police there had been strange coming and goings at the house, suggesting it may have been used to sell drugs.

Cancun has so far largely been spared the drug violence plaguing many other cities in Mexico.
