Authorities find 72 bodies on Mexican ranch

CNN describes the find as a "gruesome, makeshift burial ground," where the bodies of 58 men and 14 women were found inside a structure on the ranch.

Members of the Mexican navy were led to the ranch by a man seeking medical help for a gunshot wound. When they got there, they encountered gunfights -- that killed one soldier and three civilians -- before discovering the stash of bodies.

No details on who the victims were, but the navy called it one of the largest discoveries of bodies in Mexico's 4-year-old war on organized crime.
