a fairly uneventful weekend-
More than a dozen slain during weekend
The number of people slain in Juárez continues to increase with few signs that it will let up in the near future.
State officials on Sunday reported the slaying of 10 people on Saturday and at least three others by Sunday afternoon.
Most of the victims were shot to death. Some were shot with handguns and others with AK-47 rifles, officials said.
Some of the victims were found on the street, some inside homes, and two were shot on a front porch.
More than 3,000 people have been killed since violence began in the city in January 2008.
however the action picked up on monday-
8 killings in Juárez include man with head chopped off
A man was found with his head chopped off in the village of Caseta in the Valley of Juarez.
Chihuahua state police on Tuesday identified the man as 50-year-old Jesus Manuel Gutierrez Gonzalez, whose body was found Monday in a Toyota Camry next to a canal.
Gutierrez appeared to have been tortured and was handcuffed behind his back. The head was later found floating in the sewage canal.
The death was one of eight homicides on Monday, including four people slain at La Cúpula motel in Juárez.
Daniel Ivan Torres Gutierrez, 22, Yolanda Vanessa Torres Fernandez, 23, Brenda Lisette Fernandez Torres, 20, and Jimmy Albert Moreno Macias, 21, were found shot to death Monday evening inside room No. 27 of the motel on Avenida Paseo de la Victoria.
Investigators counted 26 bullet casings from an assault rifle and three 9-mm casings.
also some cool details released of one of the murders last week. a heavilly tortured el paso man was found in the street with his pants pulled down to his ankles, and both chopped off hands laying across his bare chest. an obvious message he was a theif and needed to be humiliated upon death.
of course these acts happen in broad daylight, as they wouldnt be as effective if carried out at night.
