Feminicides in Veracruz advance with more brutality, also in municipalities not under Gender Alert

Translated by El Profe for Borderland Beat from SinEmbargo, originally published in BlogExpediente

[Translator Note: Diana E. H. Russell, the feminist writer and activist who coined the term ''Femicide'' defines the word as, ''the killing of women because they are females."

see Russell's discussion on the use of these terms here

The term ''feminicide" has become more commonly used in Latin American countries and is defined by the Guatamalan Human Rights Commission as "...a political term. It encompasses more than femicide because it holds responsible not only the male perpetrators but also the state and judicial structures that normalize misogyny. Feminicide connotes not only the murder of women by men because they are women but also indicates state responsibility for these murders whether through the commission of the actual killing, toleration of the perpetrators’ acts of violence, or omission of state responsibility to ensure the safety of its female citizens."

In this article, the writer's use of the word ''feminicidio", or "feminicide'', is kept.]

Contains graphic descriptions of violence towards women.

In Veracruz, 175 women were raped and dismembered in the last two years in seven violent municipalities outside of the Gender Violence Alert area.


The municipalities of Coatzacoalcos, Xalapa, Poza Rica and Córdoba have hot spots, but in the larger part of Veracruz, the cases do not stop and the women disappear.

Xalapa, Veracruz, December 16 (BlogExpediente / SinEmbargo) .- From the crime committed against the Salvadoran who decided to live in Veracruz, Adela Isabel Romero Guevara, 42, to the murders of Abigail Roxana Sagrero Wilson, 31, and Dana Paula Sánchez Sagrero, 16; all are counted on the Feminicides in Mexico Map, created by María Salguero, geophysical engineer of the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN).

The crime of Adela Romero is marked with a red cross, like 1 thousand 844 more cases located in the Google Maps application. She left the house, in Nautla, to celebrate the New Year.

She considered seeing her boyfriend, Juan Reyes Moctezuma. An argument went off track and hours later, on January 1, 2016, she was found without clothes and with several stab wounds to her body. The crime scene was discovered by her daughter.

The injuries that caused the painful death of Adela are replicated in 18 municipalities of the state; in 2016, 71 women and in the year still in progress, 104 increasing statistics and injuries to Veracruz families.

The municipalities targeted as red spots, insecure, unresponsive to controlling attacks against housewives, employees, girls or elderly women are Coatzacoalcos with eleven cases, Xalapa with ten, while Poza Rica, the port of Veracruz and Córdoba, with eight feminicides in two years .

This "Feminicides in Mexico Map" places four murders in January 2016. In Minatitlán, a woman was run over near Motel California, at the point near the Movistar cell tower. The name remains unknown.

Ana Karen Sizagua appeared January 7 in the bushes of the Coatzacoalcos-Minatitlán highway. Strangled and raped with traces of violence reflected on her skin.

The same day Victoria was killed, on October 5, hours later, in the town of Catemaco, the remains of two people were found, a man and woman near a road linking the towns of Ahuatepec and Candelaria. Both showed signs of having been tortured and suffocation.

The third murdered woman appeared half-naked, with her pants under her knees and buttocks and discovered by staff of the Public Ministry. The incident occurred in the town La Encantada. The name of the victim remains unknown, the only fact of the case registered is that she was tortured and strangled to death.

Zoraida Iveth Escobar and Ana Karen Garduza, 30 and 26, originally from Zanatepec, Oaxaca, were kidnapped and in the next 48 hours, they were murdered on October 6.

Both were employed in bars and cantinas in the town of Minatitlán, but had homes in Coatzacoalcos. Initial investigations indicated that they were deprived of their liberty near Cosoleacaque when traveling with their boss, Maria del Carmen Morales Corzo, “La Viky", known businesswoman in Minatitlan, who also appeared lifeless near Acayucan.

The body of Nancy, 32, showed signs of torture and gun shots. She was taken by an armed group that violently removed her from her home, appearing hours later, on October 21, murdered on the road leading to the community Nueva Esperanza.

JL Amelia, 43, died from beatings and torture that led to whiplash inside her home in Villa Rica Street, near the corner of Abasolo of the Anahuac neighborhood in Coatzacoalcos.

On that day, November 10, 2016, staff of Expert and Ministerial Services Police found inside the home drugs in the form of marijuana, whose amount was not specified, but spoke of “some bricks". During investigations, it was noted that the drugs were for selling but did not belong to any cartel and were only a way for independence. Amelia was found with her hands tied back with raffia thread.

The discovery was made by neighbors of the victim, at around 7:30pm when it seemed strange that Amelia had the doors open despite the heavy rain and wind that slammed the town that evening, along with the high volume of the television.

Amelia, mother of three, was a domestic worker and by neighbors’ versions it became known that she had been sick for a month. She was always cheerful for her family, and had no problems with anyone, while other investigations suggest that in recent weeks they saw strange people at the home and after a few minutes went away.

At dawn on November 19, 2016, gunmen stormed the home of Maria Isabel Teoba Bilorio in Camarón de Tejeda. The 42-year-old dedicated to selling tamales, received several bullet wounds.

Of these, other municipalites are exempt a year after the AVGM began, which was created in order to portray fatal attacks on women, girls and older adults. Such is the case of Tihuatlán, Papantla, Isla, Pajapan, Acayucan and Cosoleacaque, reporting three crimes against women in the last two years.

Meanwhile Tuxpan, Cosamaloapan and Minatitlan have four cases each. Cases are broken down in the implementation of the Feminicides in Mexico Map. An example of one of these crimes occurred on May 9, 2016 in Tihuatlán.

María Petrona Margarita Hernandez, 78, left her home around six o'clock for a field to cut some firewood and in the passing hours did not return so her family went out looking for her.

Esther Vazquez Grijalva, 82, was found among thickets in the town El Rodeo, in the municipality of Atzalan, bound hand and foot, in addition to being gagged with tape.

The body was claimed by her son, Israel Vazquez Mendoza, 46 years, after the necro-surgery law was carried out on August 28, within hours of its discovery.

  1. I'm speechless,it's a doggy dog world,a whole lot of killing going on ! Wow

  2. No such things as forensics in Mexico. No one is ever caught.Bunch of ugly cowards with little dicks

  3. Hey, profe, any news about NXIVM in mexico? I hear they tattoo and mutilate women like livestock and Emiliano Salinas and his partner owners of the Mexican franchise have sued people for counseling women against attending NXIVM SEMINARS or paying their expensive tuition.
    Emilianother even says his daddy Carlos Salinas de gortari loves the idea of NXIVM (Nexium, founded by a very smart Canadian con man, pimp brainwasher supported by the sisters who inherited bIllinois of dollars from their canadian bootlegger daddy owner of canadian alcohols...
    Sometimes shit doesn' move without dumb dumbass dumbos that give a bad name to their genre.

  4. Such an important article. It is a shame it doesn't get the attention an article like el pirata gets. This is so much more important. Femicide has been rampant in many states where organised crime is rampant. I think Ver is the worse, even more so the Juarez. ditto to Michoacan, but we hear less because the people are more indigenous and darker skin. Mexico after all is a very racist country.

    Thanks Profe

    1. Such an important article for a female....what’s the ratio between male homicides and female homicides chivis? Don’t go USA 2017 female harassment on us here, borderland beat is a drug war news site right? Is the femicide cartel related or the work of some sick serial killers? Just a question.

    2. Chivis, I agree. It was very difficult to read about these crimes against women, but so important to get out into the news because if left unpublished, there is no hope of stopping the crimes. It looks hopeless now, but if no one knows about these horrible injustices, they will certainly continue.

    3. Chivis, right again. Narcos killing each other, nbd to me. They know the risks, and how 99%, either get locked up, and or dead. It's the crimes like these against normal people, especially women and children, that infuriate me. I can wrap my brain around the sadistic nature of the Narco, and the business often involves extreme violence. I can understand a grossly underpaid LE officer on either side of border taking bribes to allow drugs to pass. But the impunity for the Femicide, and extortion, disappearing, and just terror imposed on Innocents is a disgrace. It's getting to the point where the UN needs to take action. Not just the bully US, that fuels this whole fire. The whole world needs to know about this stuff. I'm happy that the violence against journalists in Mexico is being looked at more. For now....we can just pray that something is done to at least minimalize this travesty.

    4. Duarte's death squads killed 4 women and one journalist exiled from Veracruz to Mexico city in the Narvarte Murders.
      These secret death squads seem to have been left alone, but they help EPN do damage control like Pinochet's traveling Death Squad called La Caravana De La Muerte in chile on the early 70s whose general in charge Sergio Arellano Stark who also trained on the US prior to the pinichetazo) got sentenced to 6 years in prison but never served even one day "because he was too old and in bad health", they dragged many Chileans to "En Las Garras Del Puma".
      --There is a book "Los Zarpazos del Puma" The Puma Helicopter of arellano stark.
      General Joaquin Lagos acusa AL general Arellano Stark...
      This is a 45 year old case, the victims are still trying to get their victimizers to tribunals, the Chilean army still justifies its golpista junta "heros", I bring it up because the Mexican victims of the war on drugs in Mexico can expect for the same exact kind of shitty justice many years from now.

  5. Mexican men always claim to be brave,and to be gentlemen. Yeah right, your wives, daughters, family members, neighbors are being slaughtered by the hundreds. And you cowards do nothing. Learn from the real men of Cheran michoacan.

    1. It wasn’t just the men from Cheran Michoacan..... the problem is that a lot of these girls were not your girl next door.... they were gals making bad choices doing bad stuff, that in itself carries a stigma that when something happens people are dismissive. Where are from a distance we see the numbers of it and get emotional.

    2. 303, just curious...was the 78 year old lady making "bad choices" too?

    3. It could be that small business supporter Javier Duarte DE Ochoa has his death squads cleaning up to leave no witnesses behind, he and his high class from the veracruz usiness community left behind a lot of records warehoused, and they ha e a lot to lose if living witnesses are left alive.
      --New governor of the state of Veracruz, accused pedophile pederast Miguel Angel Yunez Linares who somehow made millions of dollars to invest ON THE US in real estate and shit, and used to be a priista efore becoming a panista and never had any other money earning enterprise, is to be in power o ly one more year, he could be ramping up to fly away by stealing duarte's businesses by torturing and killing his partners, because the judicial system would protect duarte's enterprises, along with his "new millionaire in dollars" former shoes os state public security who resigned before duarte was gone "to clean his name", prolly by organizing the murdering disappearances and executions of their name lenders.
      La Nacion 123/ Caso Duarte, Estos son Los testigos que la PGR tiene contra Javier Duarte:
      1 Miguel Angel Yunes linares
      2 Antonio Ortega Lopez helped set up phantom corporations..
      3 Arturo Bermudez Zurita, SSPE DE VERACRUZ, Secretario de Seguridad Publica del Estado de Veracruz "with several million dollar properties in Midland Texas..."
      Even blind mice could see that duarte ran to hide in Guatemala where he was caught, and the kaibil gangsters must be tight with him, cleaning up any witnesses to his business deals all over the state, they are the ones he needs to silence, well, he and his wife, these days exhiled on europe, with extensive money resources in Swiss Banks...

    4. 5:17 here you go rielera, just don't start facking around and pissing on the soup again...
      "God forgives, Outlaws don't"

  6. Hide your wife and daughters anywhere South of the border.

  7. Exactly what I was about to comment Chivis,a lot of people commenting on Piratas death, but hardly anyone paying attention to the real issues. Society needs to change as a whole to start seeing real results on our every day Life.

    1. Pirata made himself famous, these women are victimized by a complicit government, and need help to avenge their murders and tortures, only please, separate the passional crimes, the sexual attacks, the husbands and boyfriends and suitors hurt by rejection or undergoing horniness attacks, when so many of the women were "small business owners" is where it gets hairy assed.

  8. It is barbaric. The sheer fear, helplessness and suffering these women endure. 'MEN', man the f*ck up.

    _Canadian girl

    1. Why didnt they just women up??? they are strong and independent right, they can do anything a man can do right, you canadian feminist manhating girl

    2. A clue for you @9:54am...'MEN' doesn't mean real men, real human...learn to read analytically.

      _Canadian girl

  9. I don't doubt what you say about femicides being more rampant in states where there is organized crime (because they can).These narcos just take what they want when they want just like among the regular population.Anyone can be tough with an AK even little me.I don't understand why they torture and kill them when they probably only wanted sex to begin with but I guess it's just habit with any of their prisoners I have noticed from 4 years of reading on here every day that there isn't a lot of hits or comments when it's innocence (in most cases) being killed like this and journalists but if it's a piece of shit narco there's 4 times as many comments.

    1. Drug use also probably plays a role. I quit but when I used to use coke/meth I'd become a borderline sex addict.

  10. No such thing as feminicide, men are the ones that mostly get killed, where's the outcry for that? Feminists in Mexico trying to turn men into cucks just like they did to in Spain. Spanish men are the most beta males I have ever met.

    1. You sound like a real winner.

    2. You ever come across a Basque man from Spain??? Google Basque. Who do you think taught the Natives of Mexico how to be brutal....The Spainards, and Basques that conquered the natives. Take your misinformed misogyny back to Mississippi..

    3. We're men, we could handle it but let's protect the women.

    4. What the fuck has Spain got do with any of this you idiots.THIS IS ABOUT THE KILLING OF WOMEN..WHEREVER IT OCCURS..Some societies have a lot of work to do,this shit is absolutely unacceptable.

    5. Idiot?.....What does Spain have to do with it??? Ever read a history book? Or were you home schooled??? Yet another keyboard tough guy. Where I'm from you call a man an idiot, you get a mouthful of fist. But it's apparent you've never been in a fight. A man who's been put in his place, if smart learns from his mistake. Debate fairly and at least with some degree of civility. No reason to berate, name call, or in general, be an ass. And lastly, be careful who you talk shit to lil man, if you uttered those words in my presence or any other real man, you'd be racking up some dental bills. Implants ain't cheap!

    6. "Idiot?.....What does Spain have to do with it??? Ever read a history book? Or were you home schooled?"
      So its all the fault of them pesky Spaniards,all the violence can be lain at their door.Why have you got false teeth,do you put your falsies in a glass or a special case for your choppers?Damn you dont shut up do you?
      I think you missed the point of this story.

    7. Hey rojo or whatever the fuck your tag is,you talking about 1000 years ago you idiot,still havent taken responsibility for your own actions,great progress,blame someone else,no lets blame a whole country

    8. 203 thats right! 1037 men can just take bieng killed??? really? well then so can women, they are equal and can do anything a man can do right????

  11. femicide is far different than settling scores or killing of enemies. adice to the lost XY souls.. research so you won't appear to be so ignorant.

  12. A man hurting or killing a woman is the height of rat cowardice,she is an easy target for a bully rat bastard end of story..Yeah man some of the comments are strange to say the least,somehow blaming women for being killed what kind of shit is that.If they wear the wrong clothes does that give some fuckin dog the right to kill them,course it doesn't then where does it stop.

  13. Told you man,there are some strange fuckers on here,this should elicit outrage,some countries still have a long way to go in every way

  14. What a crazy country, becoming worse than Brazil.

  15. Dont be to critical of Mexico,we will have all the hysterical crusaders like dd etc going insane and calling many of us racist

  16. Thing is as well,Mexican women are opinionated,feisty,strong,keep things in check(like many women)and fuckin beautiful with that black hair and dark skin,dudes should count themselves lucky in Mexico and protect and fight for them not fuckin hurt them,us dudes are fuckin clowns sometimes,fuck would we be or do without women,gods gift dudes gods gift,recognize...

  17. I`ve said it before and I`ll say it again, Mexico has to be the greatest place on earth for serial killers. It`s disneyworld for psychos. Especially American ones, they can just drive to Mexico, do whatever they want, dump the victims anywhere and go back home. No problems. Pretty crazy stuff, so much violence in Mexico that no one will ever notice a serial killer.

  18. And if you are caught and pay the right people you are off the hook.I have heard of people in remote late night car accidents that were clearly at fault pay and the other person gets the blame.

  19. mens lives dont matter, no one cares. why then is society surprised when the men dont care about anything or anyone??? Why should i care about a society that doesnt care about me???

  20. Less than 40 comments on this issue?These geniuses can't read a few paragraphs unless its about a corrido or Z40s undies?
