Saturday Night: The Beat Goes On: 2492 and Counting

The 142nd female victim of assassination this year year was found early this morning (Saturday) in Col. San Antonio close to the railroad tracks, where the trains go under a tunnel, very near the same spot another woman was found dead last week. The body of the woman was kneeling with her head on the ground as though she had been forced to kneel before being shot eight times through the head and back. She was wearing denim pants and a simple red jacket. She was thin, with dark complexion and her hair came down to her shoulders. In 2008 87 women were victims of assassination. From Diario
