Tijuana: How the horrifying torture and murder of 3 teenagers explains the endless killings

Tijuana; How the torture and murder of 3 teenagers explains the endless killings

On a November evening, when the chill of winter is nearly fully upon the area, three teenagers huddled in an apartment in Lomas Verdes Tijuana.  They had been to a barbecue and party in Ensenada the night before, while on break from school, two attended O' Farrell Charter in the Encanto neighborhood of San Diego. 

Two of the boys were US citizens, Christoper Gomez, who was a senior at OFC, and Juan Suarez-Ojeda, whose sister was dating Gomez.  The two met with a third friend in Tijuana, Angel Said Robles, 17 and attended the barbecue, intending to cross back on Saturday, after Thanksgiving.  The two contacted their parents on Saturday to say they had lost their phones, but would be back.

Three men rushed into the apartment, beat, tortured and executed the teenagers, leaving their bodies nearby, exposed to the cold, wearing only underwear. It was believed they were taken from the nearby apartment, and dropped close by. 

The kids had no links to organized crime, one played football and washed cars, his first job, they were described as good and innocent children.  Earlier this week, authorities in Tijuana announced the arrest of three suspects in the killings.  The men look as most, if not all of these men do, worn, weathered, the scars of meth and violence across hard lines faces, the signs of poverty and death across their bodies. 

They look as common and as benign, as monstrous, as all the others.  There has been to motive released, nor full names, simply, Fabricio, Esteban Manuel, and Alejandro.  The solve rate for homicides in Tijuana is about 2%.  The rate goes up in killings that generate a lot of attention, such as the Honduran boy, who was murdered last week, and three suspects arrested quickly after.  

False arrests are common, a handful of drug addicts, killers, sicarios and narcocomeudistas, arrested, beaten, and presented as guilty of whatever heinous crimes they need to be guilty of.  Or else they are guilty.  We probably won't ever know.  We will maybe hear a "why", which likely won't make such sense, even to me, or those who have become intimately familiar with the violence and degradation of the murdered in Tijuana. 

It will make even less sense to those who, fortunately, aren't familiar with it.  A case of mistaken identity.  Three children were tortured and murdered, stripped to their undergarments because they looked like someone else.  Or acted like someone else.  Or were seen talking to someone else. 

The three children were tortured, murdered, because they were friends with the wrong person.  They went to the wrong taqueria, or offended the wrong person, argued with someone they shouldn't have. None of it will make much sense.  

The truth is, sense is only apart of the killing on a large scale, the grim kind of realization of the kind of frenzied butchery that has taken ahold of an entire subculture of a city.  I understand it, but there is no sense.  What makes sense is poverty, desperation, methamphetamine have all formed an infection, which keeps growing deeper, and more powerful, year by year. 

A raw flesh wound, only turning darker, and more colorful, with disease, and despair, creeping across the skin of a city, until there have been over 2500 killings in one year.  That is killing on a near unimaginable scale.  It is the highest rate of killing ever in Tijuana.  The victims are mostly underclass, poor, confined to the colonias, like Lomas Verde, adjacent to Camino Verde, the single most violent colonias in the entire city. 

Places where alliances to names like Sinaloa and CJNG really only matter from above, and the violence doesn't discriminate, killing children, mothers, fathers, innocents, those involved, those not.  There seems to be no end.   It has become horrifying in it's commonplaceness. 

I hope there is justice for these children, the two US citizens, and their friend, for they're families, and loved ones, and girlfriends, and friends.  There may be, with these arrests, the long, shaky justice system of Tijuana courts awaits.  For thousands in Tijuana, there won't be.  There will never be.  It will stain the hearts and lives of so many, an expanding pool of pain, thick with blood, with violence.

    1. It’s a shame that this kind of human trash never messes with the kids of people who can be even more evil than them if you get under their skin.

      I have a daughter and i can tell you that i would have set freaking Tijuana on fire (figuratively) if someone had done this to her. I wouldn’t even mind about getting killed as long as i manage to kill those who did this and make them suffer unimaginably. What the viagras did to that poor kid in Guerrero would pale in comparison to what i would do.

    1. Yes but that doesnt give these shit heads the right to torture and kill them for that if anything beat them up and rob them. but obviously these parasites are envious and evil, seems like natural selection doesnt work properly in tijuana. The good die and the trash stays alive to keep killing.

  12. CJNG, CDS, It doesnt matter, they are both the same crap, as every cartel is. Meth is really killing this city, I know we had people like the Arellanos before and they were monsters too, but the violence in TJ is in another whole level, now its not only the guy who moves tons without permission, or the guy who stole a shipment, NO, nowadays its the poor bastard addicted to meth who could not repay 100 pesos in drugs given to him cause he smoked all of it. TJ is fucked like never before and its painful to watch.

  17. If they are methheads with no cartel affiliations and their motive was burglary then imho they wouldn’t have tortured them .
    J says in his post that methheads or addicts are sometimes framed , i live on the other side of the world so I wouldn’t know that but i feel for the victims families if they’re not going to be certain if the monsters who mudered their children were arrested .

    1. Yep since the heat was on from the US side, because two of the kids were US citizens. Local police of Tijuana gathered 3 methheads and framed them for the killings. Anything goes in Tijuana.

  22. Like i have always commented, alot of these killings are not cartel related. They are gruesome but that does not connect it to cartel/DTO. The "police" have the last word and do any of you honestly belive that??. It is just evil that lives in Mexico. Young people are so traumatized from crap they are surrounded by. So the human instinct switches to kill or be killed. It is normal to see decapitations in Mexico or have a family member that was axed. That is how normal everyday disputes are dealt with now. And the drugged up loosers are willing to wack somebody for a few bucks. Remember they dont care who orders them or who they wackin. Its not Sammy the Bull doing hits for the mob. Its fulanito who is drugged up and will do anything for 30$. Stay away. Please.

  23. Weak pieces of shit they had to go after the most vulnerable, you would think with all the killings in Tijuana these type of low lifes would be disappearing but thats not the case, the good die and the bad stay alive longer but they eventually will meet their maker.

  25. Let's make something very clear here for all Americans...the moment you step out of American soil, into a third world country, you have no more 911 or tax payer safety to assist your snow flake ass. In Mexico safety and law enforcement are questionable and I'm 100 percent positive they are corrupt.with that being said, any one at the border is free game and open to deal with what cartel territory brings. Every time I visit Mexico I'm very respectful to the locals and dress like a tourist for a reason, " a big old American flag on my hat " keeps me from being mistaken for Pedro the drug lord and quick to stay away from colonias or hoods..I'm not sorry for this kids they have no business in Mexico. if they want safety stick to Disneyland and Hollywood..let the liberals attacked me and censor my comment please ..

  26. 5:25pm really that sounds like nonsense. That kid looks harmless, cual aplaza va cobrar para el CAF. They got men for that de TJ/SD. I’m from SD and stay in the same hood these kids went to school. I haven’t heard that from anyone? So sad, I honestly think they were innocent victims at the wrong place n wrong time. Pinches tecatos en Tijuas esta bien mal. Just gotta watch ur surroundings at all time. Maybe the chick part is more accurate, cuz I remember fools getting smoked in TJ over women in past. That makes more sense but who knows, really sad.

  30. Say what you want Mexico is really fucked up that's what everyone wanted know deal with it all cartels are more or less the same some mostly worry about the sale of drugs and others do a little of everything more lacras like zetas,cjng they think buy pure violence and causing fear in the people is better and that's not the way SINALOA works they preferred other measures when possible if not ther just like any one else they got people guns, 50cals ,rpgs, grenades etc.one thing is for sure Mexico was a lot better when Chapo and the rest of the CDS members were out at least the killings were between cartel members/ civilian casualties like all wars happen but avoided at all cost when they could not know ther like shot every one

  31. As they say "Things have to get worse before they can get better" and reckon it just about there.. I hope.. Scary thing is the extreme violence doesn't seem just about business.. It's almost like it's cool to be a narco with a teenager mentality of trying to outdo each other when it comes to acts of violence.. Very wrong

  32. Sad story , those Tecatos probably got 500 pesos , those kinds of people are pretty dangerous and are to keep on eye one every where you go , always be vigilant against those tieqiers aka tecatos they'll do anything for thier fix
