In this Thursday, July 3, 2014 photo, a paper marking where body number 15 was found lays on the ground inside an unfinished warehouse that was the site of a shootout between Mexican soldiers and alleged criminals, on the outskirts of the village of San Pedro Limon, in Mexico state, Mexico. Employees of the Mexico State medical examiners' office, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the press, said the dead were mostly youths between the ages of 16 and 24, and were from neighboring Guerrero state. Mexico's military says one soldier was wounded, and all 22 suspects were killed.
