18 Bodies found in Unmarked Graves in Chihuahua
(Chihuahua, Chihuahua) Chihuahua state authorities said that 18 bodies have been found in 11 mass graves in Chihuahua. These were found along a road near the border town of Palomas. The identities are not yet known, or whether they were suspected members of a drug cartel. Authorities continue to search for more bodies. Chihuahua has been one of the states most affected by violence and killings caused by drug trafficking, especially along the U.S. border.
Elsewhere in Chihuahua, a female municipal police chief and former city prosecutor was shot and killed shortly after leaving for work. Some women have assumed these jobs because men feared to take the positions. A 20 year old college student, Marisol Valles Garcia, assumed leadership of a municipal police department east of Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua’s most violent city. In two other villages near Juarez, women became responsible for security when men declined due to fear.
