Mexican prosecutors announced Tuesday that they
had won “historic” convictions and sentences of
697 years in prison against five men for killing 11
women near the border city of Ciudad Juarez.
The state prosecutor’s office in Chihuahua state
said the men lured women with the promise of jobs,
but instead subjected them to human trafficking and
forced prostitution before killing them.
A statement from the office called the sentences on
charges of aggravated homicide and human
trafficking “exemplary and historic.”
Ciudad Juarez, which is across from El Paso,
Texas, was the scene of a series of eerily similar
killings of more than 100 women beginning in 1993.
Those possible serial or copy-cat killings, with
similar victim profiles and killing methods, appeared
to taper off by late 2004 or early 2005. Many of
those crimes remain unsolved, and none are
connected to the current case.
In this case, the victims’ skeletal remains were
found dumped in 2012 in fields in the Juarez valley,
east of the city. The remains were so decomposed
that authorities originally thought there were 12
victims. Most were young.
Prosecutors followed the trail of victims, many of
who disappeared in 2009 or 2010 after having gone
to apply for jobs at stores, to a hotel in Ciudad
Juarez where the women were apparently held and
forced to work as prostitutes. The culprits allegedly
them when they became troublesome.
