Does Acuna have a serial killer?

Posted by DD for Borderland Beat
A big thanks to our readers for the tips that gave us additional info.  Keep em coming.


forensics guy collecting evidence  near body
 In the early hours of Sunday, May 1, a taxi driver traveling on the beltway in Acuna saw a woman's body laying in a pool of blood alongside the Beltway.  He immediately called the police and when they arrived they found the body of Nidia Karina Maldonato Salazar. 

The police reported that she was 24 years old, but various media sources list her age anwhere from 22 to 24.  Local reliable sources in Acuna have told BB that she was only 19.

She was dressed in  black shorts, pink blouse and black shoes, and had an apparent  head wound.  that appeared to have have been caused by a heavy blow to the head by a blunt instrument.  Because of the pool of blood under and around the head had not dried the police suspected that death had come to the lifeless body very recently.

After cordoning off the scene and collecting the evidence, the body was taken to the Medical Examiners office for autopsy and then turned over to the family for burial. 

Family members told police that Nidia had no problems with anyone and they knew of no reason why someone would take her life in this manner.  The police said in a press conference that they had begun an investigation, starting with trying to determine her activities in the last hours of her life.

The fact of a dead body found on the street in Mexico is not usually occasion for a big news story.  But when you start looking at the number of women who have been murdered in Acuna in the near past, perhaps it should be a big story.


Borderland Beat reported in December in a story, Femicides Sow Fear in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, about 2 women, in separate incidents whose dead bodies were found along the roadside and the people of Acuna were concerned about there being a serial killer on the loose.  The police said the killings were unrelated and there was no serial killer on the loose.


Since the first of this year the authorities have recorded 3 femicides and Nidia Karina's death makes the fourth reported by the police.  But those same local sources in Acuna question the accuracy of the police report.

The Director of a NGO with it's office in Acuna told BB that she knew of at least 10 women murdered in the city so far this year.  One of her sources has close ties to the Mayor's office and considers that source 100.% reliable.




 Though social media has not picked up on this in a big way, one comment on FB said "They are going to be like the dead girls in Juarez after awhile".

As regular readers of BB are aware news of violence and cartel activities is extremely difficult to obtain in areas where there is a heavy presence of cartels.  This area of Coahuila is controlled by a cartel and is one of the worst in trying to get news of violence even in cases like the murdered women there is no evidence of their involvement in drugs or association with cartels.

Alejandro Hope posted in his newsletter yesterday some possible answers why that may be the case.  I highly recommend you read his entire newsletter here, but here a few excerpts that may apply to this situation

"Silent night.  As argued here at Silver or Lead a few days ago, some 2000 people were murdered in Mexico in March. That’s broadly equivalent to ten times the number of victims in the Paris terrorist attacks last November. And yet, no seems to care in this country. With a few exceptions violence has simply dropped off the radar of most media outlets.

the government has tried to regulate coverage of the issue by a) reducing the absolute amount of information on crime stories

A large portion of the crime beat is absolutely local in nature. National media outlets (or foreign ones, for that matter) will most likely not interest themselves in local dynamics. And that makes sense: the national press corps should cover national events. But that comes at the cost of not covering some big stories that unfold in the local space.

Case in point: Colima. Homicides in that state have increased by 388% over the past year and its murder rate is now the highest in the country. And yet, from the vantage point of Mexico City, we have absolutely no clue of what is going on."



The sheer number of women murdered in Acuna, the pattern of leaving the bodies beside the road, some of them similarly partially covered by a blanket should be enough to cause authorities to broaden their investigation to include whether all or some were committed by one perpetrator.

We all know that the governments continued denial that there was a serial killer in Juarez resulted in the death of hundreds of women. 

Outside of the people in Acuna it seems that "absolutely" no one has a clue what is going on in Acuna.   Borderland Beat will continue to shine a light on all the femecides taking place in Acuna and hopefully some of MSM will pick up on it and the publicity will force the police and other government agencies to take a serious look and investigate the possibility of serial killer is on the loose in Acuna.  





Mexico: 7 Femicides Each Day
In some Mexican states, femicides are 15 times higher than the global average
An impunity rate of more than 95 percent in femicide cases fuels violence against women.

  2. This article really reminds me of Roberto Bolaño novel 2666, which itself took its inspiration from the Juarez femicides. Its sad to see this happening elsewhere. Bolaño paints a really vivid picture without sensationalising it, and what he picks up on so acutely is the drive to find a simple explanation for it; to chalk it up to a serial killer rather than a general cheapening of female life.

    That's not to say that there might not be a serial killer in Acuna, but that their are just so many similarities between the events motivations of the book and the events and motivations here.

    Its a really good book, I recommend it.

    1. The chilean author could have done something about "La Venda Sexy" from real life, with a lot or real surviving victims, male and female, BUT there is nothing sexy about getting blindfolded and tortured, it happened, in his own country...
      I don't know about Bolaño obsession with the victims, but I know about my obsession with the murderers, they are the main actors in the crimes of juareeez city, came from outside, no money to spend on not enough prostitutes, and a lot of vulnerable maquiladora workers, not to forget the politicians and businessmen's parties in chihuahua, to feel like initiated illuminati millionaires by sharing in the complicity of crimes.

  4. It is sad, but understandable to not assume a serial killer. With all the senseless murders in Mexico by organized crime and groups that are not with cartels, it is hard to distinguish what is what. Just the fact it is women being killed doesn't immediately scream serial killer. Didn't this happen in Juarez as well? That wasn't a serial killer.

  5. In a country where violence and murder are regular occurrences, how would you even know if there is a serial killer loose? All the hit men working for the cartels are serial killers along with a sizable number of LE in Mexico. So the whole place is full of serial killers. It's a country of serial killers.

    1. 2:47 mexico was not a "country of serial killers" until nafta was enacted, and before that we only had a few cartel members doing their dirty work for the mexican DFS, the drug trafficking wing of the CIA in mexico...after torturing and murdering kike camarena, it took like a national sized cancer metastasizing to all federal police and judicial DFS and CISEN corporations...
      --The mexican people, like the american people are not to be blamed for the bought and paid for governments' narco-terrorismo de estado fueling the globalist aspirations of world sized criminals...

  6. If you do some research on Juarez or were around during all of it happening then yes you can clearly see there was serial killers. I say killers because it became a playground for phsyco paths. Mexico is a safe place for a serial killer to operate. My heart bleeds for MX💔

  10. I'm wondering if there is any other patterns besides the blanket. As far as I know, serial killer's do something that's the same in each murder.

    1. Anyone that dies in Mexico is no saint your either involved or at the wrong place wrong time.A serial killer would only get away with it if they work for a cartel or the goverment. If a American you meant a white person than yes.

      --According to american soecialists, 10% of the people is the reason for 90% of the problems, that means about 1 200 000 bad mexicans need to be put out of their misery for good, it is going to take a few firing squads, for those that survive the pedradas and garrotazos...
