4 murders yesterday in Juarez…

Three people were found dead yesterday in Juarez, including two bodies that were wrapped in tape and with a sign reading: “por rateros…”  Another body was found in a different area. None are identified in the reports. Click here to read the story.

Later in the evening, a municipal policeman, dressed in civilian clothes was gunned down at a shopping mall at avenida Manuel Gómez Morín and Francisco Villarreal Torres. The policeman used his pistol but to no effect…The attackers fled. No one arrested. None identified. Read the story here.

This would bring the total for May so far to about 30 victims; and about 180 for the year.  The average number of killings per day is rising slightly, now about 1.3 per day. -Molly
