Juarez homicides lowest in 5 years Molly Molloy 1/1/13 6:24 AM
There were a total of 31 homicides in December in Juarez, according to El Diario. Diario reports a total of 751 homicides for 2012. My toll is slightly higher--797--mainly because I added in the 20 bodies from the clandestine graves found in the Valle de Juarez in November.  I have not seen a total for the number of women killed in December as of yet. Below are the annual totals I've reported for 2007-2012. Since 2007, there have been about 11,202 homicide deaths in Juarez. Based on the national figures projected for 2012 (about 30,000) the total deaths from homicide in Mexico since 2007 will add up to about 125,000. A chart with those tallies is also below.  This means that for this period, Juarez -- population estimate 1.2 million, about 1% of the national population -- accounts for about 11% of the total homicides in the country of Mexico -- population about 112 million.  molly molloy
