Marisol Valles Garcia, the 20-year old female student Police Chief in the Mexican State of Chihuahua is now one of three female Police Chiefs in the State, where there were four. Hermila Garcia Quinones, named to the position last month in the town of Meoqui, was found murdered in her car today. See an update below.
In Ciudad Juarez, also in Chihuahua, eighteen bodies were found in several graves today. Earlier in November another 18 bodies were found buried after being kidnapped from vacations in Acapulco.
Hermila Garcia Quinones was chased by gunmen in two trucks and killed as she drove to work. No one is arrested or even suspected. Chihuahua is responsible for about one-third of all drug war fatalities
Marisol Valles Garcia was named Chief of Police in Praxedis Guadalupe Guerrero in October. She carries no weapons, other than “principles and values.” She is still alive. I can’t imagine how, or for how long.
Update 11/30/10: Hermila Garcia was 38 years old. She was an attorney, single with no children.
