Norte reports that Víctor Manuel Bejarano Hernández, 34, an attorney, was assassinated yesterday at 2:30 p.m. as he was driving a blue Ford Windstar 2001 yesterday in the col. Ex Hipódromo. No shells were found near the scene, raising the possibility a revolver was used, possibly by someone in his vehicle at the time. He was shot in the temple and the back side of his head. Mr. Bejarano had been in the armed forces at one point, and was close to a number of military persons. He often defended persons accused of drug offenses.
Mr. Bejarano is the twentieth lawyer killed so far. None of the crimes has been solved.
Mr. Bejarano is the 84th person murdered in Cd. Juarez in May, and the 612th victim of assassination so far this year in Juarez.
