167 Females Murdered in Juarez this Year

From the El Paso Times - Three women's bodies were dumped in Juárez on Sept. 6 in areas of great importance in Mexican history. Claudia Leticia Estrada, 34, was left at a street crossing in the Colonia de Independencia. Claudia E. Tiscareño Hernandez, 22, and an unidentified woman, 20 to 25 years old, were found near 15 de Septiembre and Monte de las Cruces in the Colonia Miguel Allende. All three were killed by gunfire. Then their bodies were tossed in places with names associated with Mexico's War of Independence from Spain. Mexico will observe its independence on Wednesday. The three victims brought to 1,000 the number of girls and women killed in Juárez since 1993. "Between January and August of this year, there were 167 murders of women," said Julia Monarrez, a professor at Colegio de la Frontera Norte-Juárez. The other 2,000 homicide victims this year in Juárez were men. Read more here:
