After remaining in the home for some 40 minutes the shooters poured gasoline over the bodies and in the home, torching it before leaving.
Since then, Gudelia’s neighbors have been wondering: where were the municipal or state police, or the military, or the community police force active in that town?
It took an hour for municipal police and Civil Protection officials to show up, yet their headquarters are located only 300 meters away from the scene of the crime.
“Gudelia was widely known in Tixtla for her food. Lots of people ate at her stand,” a neighbor told the newspaper El Universal.
He said friends and neighbors are worried.
“Never has anything like this happened; the people are very angry about what was done to the girl . . . they overdid it with her,” he said.
The motive behind the murder is not clear, and the people of Tixtla dare not speak directly about it, but at least two versions have surfaced.
One is that the a crime gang was looking for one of Gudelia’s sons while another says it was after one of her sisters.
Gudelia and Kenia appear to be the latests victims of the turf war between the criminal gangs los Rojos and Los Ardillos, who are vying for control of the corridor that goes from Chilpancingo to the Montaña region of the state.
