Femicides Sow Fear in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila

A special thanks to Chivis and her personal sources in Acuña for making me aware of this story and providing pictures and additional information not being reported in the media.

Around 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 29 a green pickup with matching camper aroused suspicion on Alberto Gironella street, in the Acoros subdivision of Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila.  The driver of the vehicle stopped, pulled out the body of a woman, left it on the street, face down, and fled the scene.  She showed signs of being beaten, primarily on the face, as well as having her hands tied together with a red rag.  It was also noted that a blanket draped her legs and that she had no shoes on. The victim was later identified as 27 year old María Guadalupe Rodríguez Ramírez.

An autopsy that was conducted concluded that she was beaten to death, with no puncture wounds.  It was unknown how long she had been missing as her father reported that she had moved out of three months beforehand and had not been in contact with him since.



Around 3:00 AM, on Monday, December 15, the body of another woman was found near the intersection of Encino and Roble streets, in the colonia Granjas del Valle.  The body was left on top 
of a green blanket and showed signs of having been beaten, with numerous blows to the face.   It was thought that she was killed at a different location and her body abandoned there.  

At this time her identity has not been confirmed and an autopsy report is pending.

While a connection between the two deaths has not been reported, the fact that both were significantly beaten on the face and the abandoning of the bodies involved the use of a blanket shows a common thread.

Because of the nature of the crimes, locals fear the situation will grow into a Ciudad Juarez type situation.  Numerous females are already living in fear and avoiding shopping alone at night.

A very reliable source ascribes both killings to a single killer and stated that the deaths were not narco related.  It is worth noting that Acuña has been a bastion of Los Zetas for years and that, due to their threats, local media has generally steered clear of publishing anything to which they are connected, therefore only about a tenth of the crimes occurring in the city are reported.  With that said, the fact that the local media has reported this story can be seen as indirect evidence confirming that it is not narco related.

  1. Could be anyone, but given the level of impunity and ability to get away with murder, it could be someone from north of the border heading south to quench an evil thirst. Who knows?

    1. The prosecutors, mayor, and everyone investigating these cases stated that these are narco related deaths over debts owed by the women. I just left Acuna and spoke to many ordinary people and shop owners who all speculated that this was narco related. I can't find anyone that believes these are serial killings. I will return to Acuna in a few days and talk with those in the areas where the bodies were discovered.

  5. The 2 women were both from Acuña, they were both found in Acuña. This is not a north of the border killer quenching his thirst!!! These women had families here. There is serious talk of this being a serial killer such as in Juarez. We all pray and hope that it is just drug related and the 2nd body was the final...Lacy

  6. Now this has escalated to something much more sinister..being a narco is one thing but taking advantage of the fear of the people to commit something as heinous as this is truly mortifying. The women whose lives where taken away by this sick monster couldve been someones mother,sister,lover, or wife this one really pulls at my hearts strings. This is the end of the mexican society as a whole...el dolor is too much to handle gracias Chivis and Itzli for posting the real heartbreaking news of our people being away from my tierra where i was really born and raised makes me feel horrible that i sit here and type this in security in the US. I wish my home country where my corazon really is would someday see a beam of justicia..only one can dream. Dios te beniga

    1. I've been thinking the very same thing. Mexico is a serial killers wet dream. All the victims for the taking and little press coverage and really no chance of having the police crawling up your ass.

    2. I've said this before the lonewolf serial killer theory is just not that realistic, think about this all those towns are controlled by organized crime whichever cartel happens to control each town, if it was a serial killer not affiliated to such cartel this same cartel would haunt his ass down, they don't like someone cometting crimes they did not approve, whereas if such sick asshole or assholes killing this women are part of the cartel they would obviously be protected, same in juarez and all these other places where it has happened for years.

  8. The evil bastard needs to be hunted down . There is so much crime down there the sneaky bastard could be hard to catch . On the other hand , if it isn't cartel related they may pick him off. They have eyes and ears watching everything . Could be a low life trying to force them into the sex trade .
    Catch the evil son of a bitch is all I say

  9. One question : Where was the identified young lady from?

    The article says she had moved from wherever her father lived but doesn't say to what area/town/city

    2. This happened in acuna, not in piedras negras. You read the Zocalo! The 1st girl found in Acoros the 2nd girl found in a granjas de Valle.

  10. There is so much murdering in Mexico that serial killers or individual murderers not associated with any drug cartel cannot be apprehended. They are all blending in together which make the living conditions there a truly unholy mess!

  11. The first lady, I heard about, she was related to one of my employees. It was difficult for them to claim the body since it was being guarded by armed forces, i don't remember which ones though. My employee only mentioned that her Aunt Maria was indeed a prostitute. This is no reason to kill her but I think an important clue. Not sure on the second lady but word on the street here is that she was also a prostitute.

  12. Military and federal police away from their families, get horny and go and get whatever gets on their way, they are expert kidnappers, do not expect this kind of voilence against women to end until those mothaphakas get sent back to their hometowns, then local police can look for their local criminals.
    I hope the police are collecting and preserving evidence, but i doubt it, in a country where it is institutional not to even have toilet paper on health centers or hospitals, because the politicians in charge must steal everything and all the money to split it with their boses above...
    They only have a little money to buy plastic cups to mark where the bullet casings fell...

  13. "With that said the fact that the local media has reported this story can be seen as indirect evidence that THIS WAS NOT NARCO RELATED"

    It is just incredible to me how the media even acknowledges the fact that they are not allowed to report on cartel related crime, that on my book is one if not the first signs of a failed state, just imagine the amount of criminal activity that goes unreported in all these narco states.

  14. The Zetas might want to kill the perpetrator because its bringing too much attention to that city.

    1. good observation

    2. Zetas in general bring too much attention, and need to be exterminated!

  15. Most these observations are legitimate the Problem is a Serial Killer could operate easily in Mexico he just needs to carve them up and stab a sign to them or cut Zetas to the body! The problems the Narcos create is 99% of all Homicides are blamed on them and Detectives are not hard pressed to solve the Murder the Narcos don't care they have bigger shit to worry about like buying a Gold gun or new truck they expect to be blamed for suspicious death. Here in the states for every ten caught there's ten operating apply that to Mexico and there's none caught and that leaves it wide open compound that over last 15 years and that's a scary thought! Look at Brazil they just caught killer couple cooking people in Enpenadas so thinking it's an American problem only is Denial this smells like the MO of a Serial killer

  16. sorry guys but i dont think it is the work of a serial killer. the body of the second woman was left on the same street where 5 bodies were dumped 2 years ago, same street. the first victim was left in the same area where 2 policemen from acuna were dumped.

    1. You are correct about the bodies beijg dropped at the same place in Granjas, but not the one in Acoros. The police were killed in the dry river bed in Noblasi Dos just south of Cedros

      Delete
    2. its the same river bed. there is a road that connects noblasi to acoros.

      Delete
    3. The river beds are not the same. I live right by the river bed and have walked it many times

  17. Is there still a femicide problem in Ciudad Juarez?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Two more killed in acuña.. two separate incidents in 10 minutes.. anybody know what is going on I thought zetas were gone...

    ReplyDelete
  19. 3 more killed in PN. Two were from central america, were shot in the chest and found near R. Bravo. One more found shot in the head near colonia cenizo, see zocalo. Ithink Coahuila borders are already cartels fighting.
