A Few More Murders in Juarez

Mexican authorities are investigating the abduction of a U.S. citizen and several shooting deaths during the weekend in Juárez. Saul De la Rosa, 27, U.S. citizen, was at a house Saturday in the Galeana neighborhood when armed hit men arrived and shot to death two men at the home who are his relatives. De la Rosa and his wife had gone to Juárez to visit family members when the gunmen showed up at 12:35 p.m. Saturday, killed two men who were there with De la Rosa and took De la Rosa. Police identified the slain men as Juan Raymundo Sida de la Rosa, 41, and Juan Alberto Sida Chaparro, 22. Last week, Mexican federal police rescued an El Paso couple, Ernesto and Elvira Chavez, both in their 70s, who were kidnapped while they too visited relatives in Juárez. Their daughter sought help in finding them at the recent Annual Border Security Conference at the University of Texas at El Paso. Also Saturday, a man was set on fire and burned to death in the 9 de Septiembre neighborhood. Witnesses told police a group of men pulled the man out of a vehicle, threw him on the ground and poured gasoline on him before lighting a fire. Read more here:
