76 beheaded bodies found in Ciudad Juarez

February 24, 2012

The South Border Governor’s Conference released information that 76 bodies have been found in the border city of Ciudad Juarez.

“In light of today’s horrific attacks in Acapulco and Las Vegas, we implore the Mexican police to continue to prioritize the safety and security of Mexican citizens in the border region,” said the statement from the conference.  “We hope to experience increased cooperation and intelligence input from the Secretariat of Public Security on this issue and on the larger issue of violence, particularly violence against women, in our border states.”

The bodies, mostly women, were found abandoned in an elementary school yard across from the Ciudad Juarez courthouse.

“Our sincere condolences rest with those affected by the attacks in Acapulco and Las Vegas, as we certainly empathize with the terror they are experiencing. We hope that these extreme events will not overshadow the years of violence that have plagued our citizens for the better part of a decade,” said the conference release.
