The day of violence of this Monday has left no less than eight people dead in distinct points of Chilpancingo, five of those in Acapulco. Among the victims are the Chief of Public Security of San Marcos, Moises Castillo Lucena, who was killed along with his wife and driver, when the three of them were travelling aboard a van through the principal tourist area of the Port, the Costera Miguel Aleman Avenue.
According to official reports, the events registered on this morning in front of the Port Pier, in the centre of the town that is collapsing due to narco violence.
At roughly the same time, there was a body discovered riddled with bullets in the Adolfo Lopez Mateos Colonia, and later that morning another body discovered in the Luis Donaldo Colosio Colonia.
Meanwhile in the community of El Guayabo, in the town of Arcelia, three men aged around 50 were killed in the Zona Serrada of this region of the Tierra Caliente, where the violence never ceases.
The victims were present with signs of torture, they were identified as the brothers Ciro and Arnulfo Cerastegui Araujo and the third as Ubaldo Diaz, all originally from the adjacent community to the town of San Miguel Totolapan. (Otis: Milenio is reporting these three men were beheaded).
The incomparable wave of violence in Guerrero has left more than 200 violent homicides already this year.
Already almost as bad as January, during which the Secretariat for State Public Security registered 217 executions, the majority in the Port of Acapulco.
