More Murders in Juarez

EL PASO -- The violence in Juárez has touched a prominent Borderland family. Roberto Urrea Caraveo, 37, was gunned down on a busy avenue near the country club neighborhood Wednesday evening, Chihuahua state officials said. Fernando Alberto García Urrutia, 39, also was shot and died later at a hospital. A third man was wounded and was in a hospital Thursday, state officials said. The family of Urrea is prominent in both Juárez and El Paso. Family members did not want to comment, citing safety concerns. Urrea's mother, Rosario Caraveo, comes from an affluent family of bankers. His aunt, Victoria "Vicky" Caraveo is a women's-rights advocate. She is the former director of the Chihuahua state Women's Institute. Roberto Urrea, the victim's father, was president of the maquiladora association in the late 1990s. He was also director of corporate services at Rio Grande Travel Centers and most recently a manager at the Las Cruces Sun-News. Read more here:
