Denver And The Juarez Murders
A few days ago a man was apprehended in Denver under suspicion of being involved in the multiple murders of women in Mexico.
These weren’t random murderers though, they were what the Mexican Solidarity Network (MSN), a group that monitors human rights abuses in the country, has called “femicides.” And according to the group, hundreds of women have been murdered in the border city of Juarez, Mexico since the early 1990s. If the arrested man does prove to be pertinent to the case, it could be a major break in an investigation criticized by many Juarez citizens as being incompetent and unprofessional. There have also been cases of Mexican police arresting individuals who were not connected to the murders.
