MEXICO - At least 17 suspects are under arrest in connection with the killings of dozens of people.

One of those suspects include a local boss named Martin "El Kilo" Estrada.

Since last week, 150 victims were found in mass graves in the northern state of Tamaulipas.

The military said Estrada was behind those murders as well as those of 72 immigrants found at a Tamaulipas ranch in August.

Investigators believe hit men from the Zetas cartel hauled off the victims from buses and murdered them.

Some of the victims are still being identified in what is considered the worst mass killings in Mexico's drug war.
