AP - Authorities say a woman's body was found buried headfirst in a plastic container of cement in drug-plagued Tijuana.

Cristina Perez of the Baja California state prosecutor's office says someone spotted the woman's leg protruding from the container on a hillside.

The woman died at least a month ago and showed signs she suffered blows to the head, Perez said Thursday.

Firefighters extracted the body, but officials have yet to identify it, she added.

Tijuana, located along the California border near San Diego, has witnessed some of Mexico's worst drug killings. More than 13,800 people have died in the drug war nationwide since 2006, when the government deployed thousands of troops to fight the cartels.
