One of the suspects in a cult of human sacrifice pointed out the grave of a 13th body on Thursday and police ordered him to dig it up. "You'll do it with your hands if you have to," one officer told Sergio Martinez after the suspect was handed a pick and shovel. Martinez, 23, had been taken back to a ranch near Matamoros, where 12 bodies were unearthed Tuesday. He and other suspects have told authorities there were 14 bodies buried on the ranch. In a dramatic public confession Wednesday, some of the five suspects in custody said victims were put to death in rituals that were intended to provide a "magical shield" for members of a drug-smuggling ring.
