Juárez homicides spike in March

A beheaded body on the street and a dismembered corpse inside a metal
barrel full of concrete were found in different locations in Juárez
over the weekend, adding to the list of violent deaths in March.
A total of 45 homicides were reported last month, a jump in the
number of killings compared to 26 in January and 25 in February,
according to the Chihuahua Attorney General's Office in Juárez.
Still, the number of homicides in March is a fraction of what was
reported in the same month in previous years, the spokesperson for
the state attorney general's office, Arturo Sandoval, said on Monday.
In March 2012 there were 106 killings, while in March 2011 and March
2010 there were 176 and 240, respectively, he
"Although we saw an increase of killings last month, the number of
homicides in Juárez is within what the Mesa de Seguridad -- a group
of civilians working on security issues in Juárez -- established for
the city's parameters this year of 50 homicides per month," Sandoval
Twenty-five people were fatally shot and 11 died from knife related
injuries. Nine more were beaten to death, he said. Not all of last
month's killings were related to organized crime, he added. Over the
weekend there were eight reported slayings -- four on Friday, three
on Saturday and one on Sunday.
On Friday afternoon state authorities discovered the body of a man in
his 30s inside a metal barrel full of concrete in the Granjas
Polo Gamboa neighborhood in south Juárez. The victim had a wire
tourniquet around his neck and both of his legs cut off, according to
the state attorney general's office.
Early Saturday morning the beheaded body of a man wrapped in a
blanket was found at Melchor Ocampo neighborhood in central Juárez.
About an hour later neighbors at Pradera Dorada neighborhood, in
south-central Juárez, reported to police a human head inside a black
plastic bag found on top of a parked car's trunk, according to the
state attorney general's office.
State authorities believe the body and the head are from the same man.

Mexicali operate in two bands of human trafficking
Antonio Heras

MEXICALI, B.C. (Ap). - In Mexicali cells operate two networks of
human trafficking: "The Michoacanos" and "Jalisco", according to a
report from the Deputy of Organized Crime of the Attorney General of
Baja California.

On March 7, 2013, members of both bands staged a showdown in the
ejido Heriberto Jara, the Mexicali Valley, which left an immigrant
shot dead 9mm bullet and a minor injured. The cause of the shooting
was the "win" of goods, as referred to immigrants and the cargoes are
forced across the border.

These bands used several routes, especially the dune areas west of
Mexicali, where operators of these networks use four-wheel
motorcycles to transport immigrants carrying backpacks on their backs.

Crossing to U.S. territory are confused with motorcycle practitioners
attending this desert tracks and then pick them up in vans and
adentrarlos to cities where their families expect, although
previously left their cargoes in the hands of organized crime networks.

In late March, Border Patrol agents arrested three Mexicans who tried
to board a plane at the airport in Imperial County, California,
bordering Mexicali.

Around 7:00 pm on Saturday, March 30, federal agents from the El
Centro sector in the area stopped the aerial port of embarkation
three immigrants who got out of a van and headed for a small plane.

The immigrants said they were Mexicans and lack of immigration
documents for legal stay in the United States, while the pilot denied
knowing the identity of those who sought to boarding the plane. The
four were placed under arrest and the aircraft was seized by the
Border Patrol.

Since 2010, the Border Patrol sector has secured five planes related
to the smuggling of immigrants who were in Imperial County Airport,
also known as Boley Field, which has two runways and is used by a
commercial line, although most private flights are performed.
