More on the Death of Rito Grado from El Porvenir, Valle de Juarez

Enrique Corte Barrera, writing in El Pueblo, (click here) asserts that Rito Grado Serrano, the third sectional chief to be killed in the Valle de Juarez in the past year, had been ordered by a criminal gang to inform them of the movement of army troops and federal police that periodically patrol the Valle. Instead of doing so, Grado had complained to the state legislature that he needed help, and that he was unable to get municipal authorities to even make an appointment to see him. There is no evidence he ever got any help. He fled to Juarez, where he was murdered in his house last Saturday, October 16, along with his son, who was killed while trying to escape.
