A chilling photo from Google maps appears to show Mexican cartel members wearing creepy Halloween masks, according to online sleuths.
A Reddit user spotted a group of four masked men standing in the middle of the road in Moctezuma, Nacozari De Garcia, Mexico.
A man who appears to wear a Scream mask stands next to another one who has a Mexican wrestling mask on, on the side of the road.
A third person dressed as a werewolf stands in the middle of the road alongside someone wearing a balaclava and a hat.
The Reddit user shared the picture in the subreddit r/GoogleMaps with the caption “I just found the masked guys in Mexico.”
But Google maps fans are determined that the four masked figures are actually gang members waiting for a ride.
One commented: “That’s the cartel. You wanna stay far far away from those masks.”
Another one said: “Oh shoot damn must of been scary for the Google Maps driver.”
Someone wrote: “Did Mario just join Ghostface and the gang?”
It comes after a cartel “hitman” Luis Alonso Quintana, known as “El Guacho” was arrested in connection with the death of three women and six children from a Mormon family in November 2019.
The victims were members of the LeBaron family, a group of dual Mexican and American citizens who lived in a fundamentalist Mormon community.
Last month the ‘El Cano’ was arrested in a chicken shop in Guadalupe, Mexico.
The alleged leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in Nuevo León was captured after a shootout with the police led to two people being killed.
Shocking footage showed people fleeing for their lives after members of Mexico’s deadliest cartel allegedly dropped a bomb from a drone.
The strike allegedly came from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel to a rival camp in a new turf war.
