2015: 80 Homicides of U.S. Citizens in Mexico, 260 deaths

by Chivis for Borderland Beat
Ann Devert at the New York memorial of her son Harry.  Harry disappeared in Michoacan
in January 2014, his body was located in July 2014.  Although many U.S. deaths go largely
without much reporting in news outlets, because of Ann's advocacy his disappearance 
became news in Mexico and the U.S..  He is known as "The traveler", in Mexico   

I
n the year of 2015, there were 20,916,000 Americans that visited Mexico.  Another million legally reside full time in Mexico, and an estimated 1.5-2 million reside in Mexico illegally.

The total of U.S. citizens who died in Mexico in 2015 was 260.  260 represent the culmination  of all deaths, homicide, suicide drug and accidents.

The statistics below are murders of Americans in Mexico for the year of 2015.  These figures are from the United States State Department. 

The records reflect a total of 80 homicides of U.S. citizens while in Mexico.  These are homicides that differentiate from what the state department classified as “Drug Related” and other types of deaths.   
Drug Related deaths total 7.  Surprising are the number of drownings and suicides.  27 Americans drowned in Mexico, mostly at resort areas such as Cancun and Cabo. The remainder of deaths was attributed to accidents, maritime, vehicle etc.

Drownings: 27
Suicide:       21
Here is the state breakdown of American homicides

    2. 60 000 deaths and 30 000 disappeared in 4 years of peñata say keep out of a murdering state that sponsors extra-judiciary killings of criminals and the innocent by its specially trained terrorist forces, for whom rape end extortion is like another Godsent.

    3. I have been going to Mexico since I was a child mostly in the early 90's, My Father set up the network of all the Toll roads in Mexico he learned how to speak and read Spanish before he went. We got together and traveled to every small town and big city he worked in it was a blast no problems at all. As i have gotten older and having my mother work for American Airlines I have gotten to go to all the Vacation spots several times Only trouble me getting arrested in Cancun for raising hell on Sprink Break and my Dad was being set up to be Kidnapped in Mexico City outside his hotel. The shoe shiner he used all the time outside the hotel one morning chained his leg to the Shoe Shine stand and a van came up but they dont know my Dad big man 101st Airborne in Vietnam and he got back into the hotel to safety. But all the years that is it the people are so nice back in the early 90's and late 80's it was such a great country. Now everything has changed but as long as your respectful and dont try buying some coke from a Taxi Driver you will be okay were ever you go. I just Got back from ciudad juarez where I get all my dental work done.

    1. Here in central Valley in California like 5 police officers have passed 2 correctional officers have passed and the prisons seem to be kept over crowded. It may sound safer in Mexico but to think of the cartel I'd rather keep my chances here and count my lucky stars lol.

    3. It is safer to live in Mexico. The most dangerous concern are the street punks who want to extort an American in one form or another. Thanks BB for the honorable work

    4. 6:00 when you see 'street punks' around in me;ico, call "El Vengador Solitario" right away,
      even epn is trying to find him, not for murdering street punks, but to, maybe, give them. Other "jobs" until he gets done closing google, youtube. I think the copy cat took the idea from the movis of "Death Wish".
      Today the undesirables, tomarrah, YOU...

    5. for example if somebody travel to USA they can be killed by an american gangsters. if somebody travel to mexico they can be killed by a mexican gangster or if somebody travel to costa rica the can be killled by costa rica gangsters

    6. Costa Rica has no army, and no gangsters, but Rafail Caro Quintero was cogido on his costarrican finca, with Sarah Cristina Cossio Vidaurri after he escaped after he did not kill camarena.
      There was no "foreign gangsters" allowing flights coming in and out in the ranchos and air strips they owned in COSTA RICA EITHER, NEVER HAPPENED...CONSPIRACY, LOL.

    7. 7:16 in mexico you get raped too, for an icing on the cake.

    8. Inexico you usually get kidnapped, sometimes express, for ransom and extortion, raped, tortured until you pay or get paid for and murdered or disappeared, by the poolice, or their sicarios, many of whom are former military, and no court or law enforcement will give a shit about it.
      On the US if you die passed out drunk in the snow and only one bone is left behind, the police will investigate, they only cover up for their fraternal brothers of law enforcement, and once in a while for self appointed neighborhood watch captains with a gun and a license to kill teenagers to make them shut the fack up with their "heeelp!" squealing like a coyote...
      But that is one little exceptiion, american cops do get paid, mexican cops must find their own pay and plaza fees to kick upstairs, the mexican government does not support huevones...

  4. Mexican nationals legal and illegal die on U.S. soil every year by the dozens if not more also! Nobody is keeping tabs on that statistic. This is Trump propaganda here.

    1. Isn't is painful walking around with that massive chip you carry on your shoulder?

      When you fully wake up, you may understand that these stats will be surprising to many people to learn that so few homicides of U.S. citizens actually are conducted in Mexico. It dispels the myth. Not ass backwards as you assume. I never heard Donald Trump say anything about Americans being killed in Mexico, so it is you perpetuating propaganda. You should open your mind to all information, and then perhaps you will not be so ill-informed.

      As for "No body keeps tabs on the statistic of how many Mexicans nationals are murdered, the state department does keep stats, it takes work, just as the number I tallied took work but it is there. and far less in number per capita. It is usually race on race killing, just like blacks. Brown on brown and black on black. that is who is killing

      and in 2015 there were 715 killings in the U.S. by police. of those 1/7 were latinos of all types including Mexicans bot Mexican American, Mexican nationals, Cuban, puerto ricans, central american legal, south americans... legal and undocumented. etc etc.

    2. I agree with you Chivis 100 % when you said this --->
      "You should open your mind to all information, and then perhaps you will not be so ill-informed."
      and this --->
      "It is usually race on race killing, just like blacks. Brown on brown and black on black. that is who is killing"
      ....................................
      ps.
      In place where I live the violence blacks vs blacks is just SHOCKING !!! Not many whites and Hispanics killing. Not many Asians.
      ps.2
      I am also very surprised that the Black Lives Matter doesn't address this massive problem. ...

    3. Nice Chivis. I appreciate the work. The fact is,
      there are relatively few U.S. murdered in Mexico.

      That doesn't mean one should not be aware, travel smart, know where you go, and your surroundings

      Delete
    4. @3:47 How can a group that has just started within the last few years address a problem that has been a problem for hundreds if not thousands of years? Blacks kill more blacks, Hispanics kill more Hispanics and whites kill more whites. So what's the problem that needs to be addressed exactly? BLM needs to address why blacks kill blacks, why? The movement was started to address unarmed blacks being shot and killed by police. For as long as I can remember the black community has always addressed black on black crime. Don't buy into the right wing rhetoric because if you do then you will completely miss the message.

  5. If a body can be matched with a U.S. Passport or other U.S citizenship document, then it can be counted by the DOS...

    2. Canadiana,
      Paying 1000 is meager compared to death. Martin Gary Atwood, a Canadian citizen, was found beaten to death just last year. Your acquaintances were lucky

  8. Happened to us between Santa Ana and Caborca in Sonora. One American and two Mexican citizens in our car. They claimed to be federated and had machine guns. Wanted to look under the hood st the engine. Pulled out a small bag of coke that they planted. Was not ours and I got into an argument with them me being unarmed. We paid them and left. They didn't look like military to me. Twenty miles closer to Caborca a real or fake police car chased us at 100 miles per hour. He tried to ram our truck. I had to drive him off the road. We eventually made it to Puerto Penasco. I think this was CDS but not sure.

  12. Hey, listen-up bros.
    Sure you can get murdered anywhere.
    However, the odds rise significantly if you vacation in the Chicago ghetto or the LA Barrio or Mexico or Raqqa Syria!
    It's like wing-suiting off a 2000 high foot cliff. One of these times it isn't going to end well!

  14. What seems like bogus traffic infractions are usually speeding... the transpeninsular is mostly 60 or 80 km/hr ( 37.5 or 50 miles/hr ), pretty low limits I would say, and basically everybody is speeding, including me... so they stop you and you don't like it... oh well... fly, drive at the speed limit or risk being caught. In the south of Baja California you can speed more just because there are less cops present...

    2. I don' go to mexico for more than 35 years, it was looking BAD back then, because it was bad I guess.
      well, now the murdering is about 30 000 times worse every year, much of it because of milicos, paracos and volunteer government puppets .

  16. American tourist will continue to bank roll the better parts of Mexico. They do however get mugged regularly. Most times its a simple shake down but the money is exchanged willingly. Too bad us Americans can't take our guns with us to Mexico....

    1. 643? What are you writing? People should carry extra cash and credit cards with them? Or should not carry any cash or credit cards with them? Travelers checks? Tips when on vacation in Mexico: 1. Transfer money in bank not found in Mexico prior to vacation
      2. When sight seeing in Mexico, brown bag your lunch (try to avoid bologna and ham-it smell bad)
      3. Carry a mug for pan handling when wanting to take a taxi and buy items
      4. Be safe-don't accept candy or rides from strangers

    2. No you can't carry your guns to Mexico because its Mexico...not the USA. Mexican citizens cant even own guns in mexico so you are no special. Stay in the USA if you want to protect yourself with your gun

  17. In all my 43 years have I never been extorted by an American police officer. I have been to Mexico 5 times (Juarez 1, Matamoras 1, Acuña 1, Ojinaga 2) and I have had to pay off a Mexican police officer twice. Once as a 15 year old and once as a 20 year old. I would like to add that I was doing nothing illegal or anything that would warrant a police officers involvement. I assume my group appeared to be easy marks for the corrupt cops.

  20. You burn me, you step on me.
    You kneel when I am waved.
    But I’ve faced much worse than this,
    The road to freedom I have paved.

    I’ve rode with George Washington,
    And gone down with ships at sea.
    I’ve flown in the wild blue yonder,
    and been carried on the shores of Normandy.

    With imprisoned soldiers I have been,
    And raised on Iwo Jima by soldiers brave.
    I’ve been with those who never returned home,
    To widows I’ve been handed and laid on a soldier’s grave.

    I’ve been to ground zero when all hope was gone,
    And through tears, looked down at the candles all around.
    I’ve flown half mass in times of darkness,
    And yet still I stand and won’t stay on the ground.

    And so you burn me, not knowing what I am.
    You think you protest but I gave you that right.
    So continue to kneel, yet as you do, know this…
    That for YOU I will continue to FIGHT.
