approximately 85 people killed so far in March….police victims identified…

My best guess for the total number of homicides so far in March is about
85. This number surpasses the total for February which was 82. January’s
death toll was 122, so the 2012 total is now about 289 or an average of 3.2
murders each day. Diario has reported the identities of the 5 municipal
police victims; two are women. The article also notes that since the
officers were not on duty when they were murdered, they will not be given
official honors, but that the city will assist the families to pay for the
funerals.
