At the close of the six-year term of Enrique Peña Nieto, the intentional homicide returned to rebound in the country and maintains historical levels. Colima remained with the highest rate of intentional homicides so far this year with 58.84 per 100 thousand inhabitants. 

Colima , has been considered an  "apple of discord" between "El Mencho" and "El Chapo" Guzmán.

Data from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP) indicate that during September, 2,542 investigative files were initiated for this crime. In the figure 2 percent is greater than that of August, which accumulated 2,490, and the second highest monthly of the last two decades. The month with the highest number of investigations for intentional homicide is July 2018, with 2,603 ​​folders initiated by the State Attorney's Offices and Public Prosecutor's Offices. 

With the 2,542 cases of September, Mexico added 21,383 murders in the first nine months of the year, amount 17.8 percent higher than the same period of 2017.

The highest figure for an identical period since 1997, when the SESNSP began to systematize criminal statistics at the national level. Organizations have warned that the crisis of violence in the country demonstrates the failure of the anti-government strategy of the outgoing Government. 

COLIMA: In the State of Colima, 41 intentional homicides were recorded in July, the number increased to 49 in August, and finally in September the murders increased to 51. So far in 2018 according to this government agency that collects the statistics of the states, in Colima there have been 447 intentional homicides: 56 in January; 51 in February; 52 in March; 46 in April; 49 in May; 52 in June; 41 in July; 49 in August; and 51 in September. 

HOMICIDE IN 18 STATES: Although the State of Colima is not the only one, in September, the crime of intentional homicide increased by 18 entities compared to the previous month. 

The statistics of SESNSP reflect growth in Aguascalientes, Baja California Sur, Coahuila, Colima, Chiapas, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Jalisco, State of Mexico, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Queretaro, Sonora, Tlaxcala, Veracruz and Zacatecas.

The official data is clear: 

In 2015, the number of murders from January to September was 13,700 victims; for 2016 it grew 17 thousand 40, and in 2017 (year that was already a record in violence), the balance until September was 21 thousand 460 victims. This is an increase of more than 85 percent of homicides and femicides in three years, and an increase of 18 percent compared to 2017 alone, which, until now, had been the most violent year of the last two decades. 

This year, 4 people are murdered every hour in Mexico, or what is the same, more than 94 men and women who lose their lives violently every day. The states with the highest rate of intentional homicides so far this year are Colima, with 58.84 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants; Baja California with a rate of 56.67 cases; Guerrero with 46.70; Chihuahua with 37.39, and Guanajuato with 32.49.

    1. Ok. It's not funny anymore! Nearly 100 of your fellow countrymen (and women) are murdered each day! Your "plaza cleaning" operations with your fancy weapons and luxury cars does not make it any different than two drug dealers killing each other over a street corner. Is this the example you want to set for the younger generation? If you become a proficient killer in a gang, you can succeed to become a killer who drives an Escalade and owns a gold plated AK47!? Make something of your life instead of taking lives!
