Incredible horror in Mexico with two others homicides to be recorded and even taken out of our worst nightmares. A couple lesbians from Texas was killed after being first tortured while their bodies were dismembered and left in two garbage bags on the streets in the city of Ciudad Juárez on the US-Mexico border.
The women were identified as Nohemí Medina Martínez and Yulizsa Ramírez, both 28, from El Paso, according to the Chihuahua State Attorney General’s Office.
The bags containing their bodies were found about 17 miles apart on a section of the Juárez-El Porvenir road on Sunday morning. One of the bodies was found in the San Agustín neighborhood and the other was found at the entrance to the village of Jesus Carranza.
The Mexican newspaper El Diario reported that family members were visiting Ciudad Juárez and last saw them on two Saturdays. It is not clear how long they were in Mexico while they were both Mexican but lived in Texas.
The victims were mothers of three children
The director of the Chihuahua Commission on Sexual Diversity, Karen Arvizo, confirmed to DailyMail that the couple were mothers of three children. They got married in 2021.
Arvizo fears that the murders of Medina Martínez and Ramírez could go unnoticed, like many other hate crimes against Mexico’s LGBT community in the past.
“The concern is that the authorities will do absolutely nothing,” Arvizo said. “We feel that we are being treated as second-class citizens and that we really do not matter.”
On Monday, Ciudad Juárez authorities found the bodies of two other women at an intersection in the Patria-Saragoza district. They were also tortured and shot and have not been identified.
One of the victims was declared dead at the scene. The other woman died at a local hospital shortly afterwards
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The murders have no end
Recent crime statistics reviewed by El Diario show that at least 65 homicides have been reported so far this year in Ciudad Juárez, the most violent of Chihuahua’s 67 municipalities. Eleven of the victims have been identified as women.
Data released by the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Chihuahua showed that 1,424 of the 2,476 homicides recorded in the state in 2021 took place in Ciudad Juárez, about four on average per day.
By comparison, 2,715 homicides were reported in 2020, including 1,507 in the border town.
Ciudad Juárez District Attorney Jesus Carrasco attributes the majority of homicides to smaller drug gangs such as Los Mexicles, Doble A, Los Aztecas and La Nueva Empresa.
