Guatemalan serial killings continue unabated
Boston Globe |
"At a rate of more than one a day, the mutilated bodies of Guatemalan women are turning up on roadsides and in dumpsters. Some have been decapitated with butcher knives. Others have been strangled or burned beyond recognition. Many have been raped. Since January 2002, 1,183 Guatemalan women have been murdered, many in unspeakable ways. And nobody knows why... Less than 5 percent of all murders are solved in Guatemala, which lacks a specialized homicide squad, officials say. Police have arrested only 11 suspects in connection with the murders of 360 women last year... The number of victims had surpassed that of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, where the killings of more than 300 women over the past decade have captured world attention. Guatemalan officials, however, continue to downplay the violence, despite evidence that the number of killings are on the rise."
