The number of alleged homicides committed by organized crime groups rose to 90 in Chihuahua during the first 17 days of the year, according to a newspaper account prepared based on reports from the State Attorney General. The 11 most recent murders in this area occurred between Tuesday night and Wednesday.

An attack on Wednesday left three dead and one wounded, after men armed with high-powered rifles fired at their victims at the corner of 55th and Rosales street, in the neighborhood Popular, of the capital of Chihuahua. The assailants fled in a vehicle. 


Also in the Chihuahua capital, a young man was shot to death in Teófilo Borunda street in the Santo Niño neighborhood. Another young man was injured in the attack and the identity of the victims is still unknown.

In the Juanita Luna neighborhood of Ciudad Juarez, a man dressed in women's clothes was killed early Wednesday. In addition, the body of a man with signs of torture and gunshot wounds was found on the road that leads to the town of Anáhuac, municipality of Cuauhtémoc.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning in the plaza of the community of Santa María, municipality of Villa López, in the south of Chihuahua, Efraín Guadalupe García Reyes, 24 years of age, was found dead with gunshot wounds.


In Camargo, Chihuahua, Juan Carlos Leal Gamboa, a teacher from Juarez, was attacked near a bar in an attack in which another person was killed. 


Lastly, a woman lost her life in Delicias, Chihuahua, after being shot several times by her assailants. At the scene, her partner was injured, but minutes later he was murdered when being treated at a regional hospital. 


The violent day in recent hours left 11 homicides in four states of the country. Of the total, five were in Guanajuato, three in the state of Mexico, two in Baja California and one in Morelos, according to police reports.

    1. 10:18 EPN with everything against JAVIER CORRAL, new governor of the State of Chiguauguau for indicting him EPN, "El Capulina" Manlio Fabio Beltrones AKA "La Fabis", and Cesar "El Capulina" Duarte. Now residing on El Paso, and other PRIISTA NARCO-POLITICIANS FOR STEALING from the state coffers...
      EPN is holding on to CHIGUAUGUAU's federal money and is heating up the state, state grameros do not use high powered rifles to murder or silence anybody anywhere.

    2. Mencho is not fighting in Chihuas at all. This is still Linea on the offensive and CDS holding on to it's stake there. Too early to tell who will come out on top but Linea is not relenting.

    7. 12:56; I might have read your post had I not seen frequent CAPS used through your lengthy post. Tip; people that do that kind of seem psycho and creepy.

    8. @12:56 Corral on a scale of 1 thru 10 was given like a 4 on his performance in Chihuahua by reaidents there recently. The lowest score of any politician ever for the state. Whatever you want to post for your boy Corral apparently his own state does not agree that he is doing a wonderful job in issues like security and infrastructure among others.

    9. 12:56 Fuckin Capulina was governor of Chihuas when Calderon was was around till the early days of EPN presidency. Corral is full of shit if he is indicting these two carachters together. Whatever Corral wants he sure is fucking up though and the whole state is paying for it. He will never win a second term in Chihuas.

    1. chih could set a new record for the state.

      juarez at its highest peak had 37 per 100k

      Acapulco, Mexico, has 104.73 homicides per 100,000 residents. number two in the world just behind caracas

      St louis is 14th
      these are on a list of cities having a pop of 300k or more
      the U.S. has 5 cities on the 50 worse in the world list

      where did you see the data for the 50k [viet nam] in the big year of 2010 they had 3500 all other years much less.

    2. @1:56 is just talking shit Chivis. FYI as of Jan 18 after having started with violence the number of murders within the whole state of Chihuahua seem to be on the decline again including those committed in Juarez. This according to channel 44 news in Juarez. According to them also infighting between criminal groups is what caused the upstick in this years murders fhe city so this talk about CDS vs Juarez again is just crap.

    3. That counts are for bodies found how about all the disappeared just realistic question

    4. @chivis ... while I agree that the OP is talking out of his rear .. I can’t help but to ask you chivis to double check your facts and sources prior to posting ... simple arithmetic will tell you that 3000 plus murders in a city of 1.3 million gives you a murder rate of over 200 per every 100k ... where are you getting your facts from ? BDN?

      Delete
    5. 4:31 see my red face? of course you are correct about the rate. it was 192 per 100k in 2009 or 2010. I was fixated on the Vietnam comparative. Sorry and I am sending you a paci for the BDN remark :)

    6. 2:16 absolutely! just in migrants alone 12k disappear each year and not accounted for on the homicide list. through out Mexico. Calderon said two remarkable statement s at the end of his term, 1. that apx 25k, at that time were in fosas in the vast border land, 2. that all border states municipalities were controlled by a cartel.

  6. Got to respect the effort of la linea for trying to take or keep the plaza for itself.

    1. La Linea is not fighting to survive anymore. They are fighting to expand their presence once again in Chihuahua. They lost to a certain extent some small towns like Cuatemoch and Madera to CDS recently but they are hitting hard in Chihuahua city and more so in Juarez. It might be somewhat of an uphill battle but they do not know how to back down and in Juarez at least their popularity is growing once again meaning they have more recruitment power to expand.

    2. 5:12...thanks but no thanks..,,I’ll pass on “got to respect” for any criminal group that without their weapons would be washing windshields.

  7. Has anyone heard or now of the disappearance of Cuauhtemoc’s ex-chief of police Gabriel Ramos Chacon?
