Guanajuato Attorney Who Was Searching for His Missing Sister Was Murdered

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Javier searched for his sister Lupita, who disappeared in February 2020. Both are now dead.
Javier Barajas Piña, a Guanajuato attorney and member of the State Commission for the Search for Persons, was assassinated over the weekend.

Before joining the organization, Javier eagerly searched for his sister Lupita, a teacher who disappeared in February 2020 and was found dead in a mass grave in Salvatierra last March, as reported by Borderland Beat.

Javier died from a firearm in downtown Salvatierra at around 11PM on Saturday. The State Attorney General's Office (FGE) is heading the investigation to clarify the homicide.

The head of the State Search Commission, Héctor Díaz Ezquerra, remembered Javier was a dedicated young man.

“He came from being a victim, precisely because of his sister, and joined us in our search ... he was always willing to work and support others. It is a very strong loss for all of us," he said.

Background

Javier's sister Lupita went missing on 29 February 2020 after she visited her parents in Salvatierra and had gone out to buy food for lunch. Lupita had been living in Irapuato for a few years with her husband and daughter. She taught at the rural primary school Guadalupe Victoria in La Valencianita community of that municipality.


Lupita had communicated by phone with her parents and her husband while she was in a city street buying cakes. But after that communication they did not have contact with her again.


At the beginning of last March, feminist groups and members of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE) sent several letters to Guanajuato Prosecutor's Office to demand that it deploy all the resources to locate Lupita.


On that occasion, the teachers expressed their fear about the conditions in which they carry out their work, mainly in the southern region of the state, where they do not have guarantees for their safety.


Almost a year after her disappearance, Lupita's body was identified among 72 corpses on March 2021.

  6. I don’t understand the motive to kill a teacher who was helping children in the community. Is there more to this? I know that Irapuato does have a lot of crime...but still, I don’t get it.

    1. Military, federal and state police officers do kidnap and rape, not just for ransom, they are usually broke because of daily party and their check coming late, they are the ones that do it any time of the day without fear and with impunity, not just the cartel members, as a matter of fack, FECAL had to pull his armed forces from Cd Juarez because shit got a million times worse when it came to femicides there.

  13. The people commenting that this was CJNG don't even understand where CJNG is at in Guanajuato.

    https://guanajuato.lasillarota.com/estados/vinculan-a-proceso-a-el-tripa-del-cjng-operaba-en-estas-plazas/420702 CJNG had a presence in Moreleon something happened in Puruandiro who flipped around the time the guy above was captured.

    https://www.unomasuno.com.mx/en-guanajuato-identifican-a-fernando-tonatiuh-hijo-de-candidata-que-fue-ejecutada-como-jefe-de-plaza-del-cjng/ If what is said in this article is true that the lady candidate who was killed had a son that worked with CJNG it could be that he flipped on them not to long ago. Looks like her son replace El Tripa.

    CJNG just announced their incursion into Cortazar. From my understand CJNG pushed south from Moreleon or is trying to push that way. South west from Salamanca, They somehow managed to get behind Celaya and took Los Apaseos and Comonfort and everything above that.

    I think CJNG right now is fighting Celaya,Cortazar, Jaral del Progresso, Salvatierra, Santiago Maravato, Tarimoro, Acambaro. They are trying to get in or push out Santa Rosa de Lima. They are also hitting or already control Maravatio Michaocan are are fighting for Ciudad Hidalgo.

    Doce colectivos de familiares de personas desaparecidas repudiaron el cobarde asesinato de Francisco Javier Barajas Piña, el sábado pasado en Salvatierra, hermano de la maestra Guadalupe Barajas encontrada sin vida en una fosa en el mismo municipio.

    He was found dead in Salvatierra who controls that area? From my understanding CJNG hasn't been able to take control of that area. His sister came down from an area that I know CJNG does control.

    1. That guys they tried to pas as El Tripa was not him. El tripa is rumored to be another alias of El R2 although I also heard El tripa is El R2s cousin.
      They basically captured that guy and tried to say "hey we caught infamous CJNG YouTuber RR aka El tripa" but it's bsRR is out and about. Even sponsered a song about it "see equivocaron RR" Leon y su gente.
      A while back crsl made a video or manta where they tell RR "fuck you coward . You saw what we did yo ur cousin El tripa, we killed him and you did nothing" so that's some food for thought

    2. So...when it's convenient you say CJNG controls all of Guanajuato but when it's not...you come up with bullshit like this.

    "I'm not guilty. You're, hopefully
    after reading this, not another one that's guilty. The misinformed citizen, the over zealous drug czars, law enforcement whose very job existance is directly dependent on the asset forfeiture hustle, (and by extension also directly dependent on waging/maintaining a war on the very american citizens they have sworn to protect by perpuating draconian laws, para militarization of civilian police forces, and far to common place outside the law behavior while the message is this isnt a war on you joe and jolly adult citizen champions of liberty no this is a war on an inatimate object or rather a war to maintain the prohibition of ones ability to own possess buy transfer sell or injest any and all see above list of inatimate objects substances justified with the liberal application of arbitrary health and safety code violations no no no defintely not a war on you your mind and those of everyone around you. total market dominance huh whats that? complete control over the body and minds of it citizens cough cough hey look away?), the sad commentary on human society in carnate via thw prison for profit industry a.k.a the real footlocker, a whole cast of otherwise do little characters who have fashioned themselves jobs that allow them to feed off the troft of human suffering and misery by caging human beings less about justice more about profit, double dipping lawmakers and far more than a few politicians, the land owning elite familys of old money industry that have decided to build the new plantation of slaves( this new business plan rebrands slavery as corrections, and its slaves as deplorables aka inmates convicts or whatever word helps you forget that more than a few of them are actually fellow human beings just like you only they happened to run afoul of the health and safety orders of the day and should now be deserving of your scorn forever more...is near equal opportunity all social justice minded folks out there), all you who lobby against making drugs legal. Just like you did with alcohol during the prohibition. You're the one who's guilty. I mean, c'mon, let's kick the ballistics here: Ain't no Uzi's made in Harlem. Not one of us in here owns a coca/poppy field. This thing is bigger than the devils that you see(of the politicians that do take money, its most often to stay quiet plata o plomo and are not themselves players or shot callers. the crack head has many ills, top of the list may be feeding a habit thats priced more than its daily weight in gold, doesnt excuse negative actions the person might take in pursuit of that habit yet might give some credence to the likelyhood of this individual getting erroroneously blamed far too often for much larger societal issues instead of ones own direct actions.) This is big business. This is the American way....



    so what do we know? all we know is what we learn...that being said its should be clear to all by now that such over simpifcations like the previously stated 70/30 guesstimation are at best grossly over simplified assumptions and at worst borderline neglegent, erring on the side of willfull ignorance of the complexity of the situation with results being extremely harmful with real world real lives consequences if left to fester undebated and unrefuted, to become commonly held belief. if such was to happen, a great and wholey unnessesary suffering awaits a society who fails to see the bigger picture and or cannot muster the will and courage required to change course. let it be learned, known and with hope maybe under(over)stood.

    cheers

  18. 72...bodies....mass...grave....

    of...MISSING PERSONS!?



    72!?

    SEVENTY Harfuch'n DOS?!


    Simi own' says...two countries... one bans legal gun ownership for its law abiding citizens the other does not... in which of the two countries are psychopathic demons allowed to run wild without fear of immediate deterance or consequence for disappearance and mass graving.... 72 ....people...?


    "we feel so much safer knowing that as a law abiding citizens we rely completely on the state providing my safety 24/7, reliquishing my ability to protect myself is but a necessary risk easily taken by someone not currently defenseless alone and fighting for their life but necessary just the same. I dont trust bad apples with psychotic criminal intent aka NON LAW ABIDING intent to being able to own guns so the solution is to pass LAWS that would effectively restrict and or ban honest LAW abiding citizens like myself and people i trust from owning guns for self defense."

    said nobody ever again after careful self inspection and deep introspection of the merit to this logic...


    god save mexic....wait the Church is still there in full force? ...the same capital C Church brought over with the other lovely gifts with the conquistadors? yep...better make that a well educated and armed citizenry that doesnt hero worship its banditos , stir with a strong emphasis on an accurate history class especially regarding the church. add a pinch of lime...saves mexico..yal have great people and wonderful food and now you know this to be true and so cannibalizing yourselves is not simply no longer tolerable its no longer palatable... to the good life and a new menu bon apatite

    cheers


    BB i love you guys i think what yal do is great but just one question if a happy ending to a this long tragic story endured by the good people of mexico could be reported as truely over tomorrow but doing so would cease there necessitating the beat on the borderland we have all come to expect....would ya print it?


    everything inside me tells me the answer is obvious but im sure hearing it directly would show all my fellow commenters to take their comments as seriously as you guys do what you do and maybe some might realize all the reporting has all been in the pursuit of noble truth and hopefully with that we can witness an end to the unimaginable suffering caused by the drug war the world over and in particula mexico.


    thanks for your time.
    cheers
