Discovery In Mexico: 13 Individuals With Elongated Skulls Stun Archaeologists

Mexican experts found a cemetery a few thousand years old in the state of Sonora that has features never seen before in that region and extending the zone of influence of the Mesoamerican peoples, said archaeologists from the Institute National Anthropology and History (INAH).

A mere 300 meters from the village of Onavas, southern Sonora, was an outdoor grave site, the first pre-Hispanic cemetery,of that state found with burials composed of 25 individuals, 13 of whom have intentional skull deformation, INAH said in a statement.

I dunno, I first thought this was a humorous hoax, given that the photo shown seems a bit too elongated to be real, but the source story appears mostly legit. So, I’m not sure. You can get a high degree of deformation, but I’m not sure you can get that much.
