Tijuana Drug War Rages: 21 People Murdered in Less than 48 Hours

Tijuana, right across the ‘open border’ with San Diego, is listed as the deadliest city in the world based on its 2018 homicide rate. Over a period of less than 48 hours last week, 21 people were murdered in a grisly fashion to make a statement to the living. Most of the bloodshed is related to drug-cartel turf wars.

Cartel-related drug violence continues in the border city of Tijuana with 21 killings registered in less than a 48-hour period. Those deaths include three bodies abandoned in a burning vehicle.

The killings began just after midnight on Wednesday when firefighters received a call about an abandoned vehicle burning on a dirt road in colonia Cañón del Padre. After firefighters extinguished the flames, they discovered the badly burned corpse of an unknown victim in the back seat. Upon opening the trunk, they then discovered two more badly burned bodies, according to local media reports.

At 4:25 p.m. on Wednesday, officials called crime scene investigators from the State Attorney General’s office to colonia Francisco Zarco where the badly decomposed body of an unknown male victim was located. The body displayed signs of being exposed to fire. A few hours later, police were called to colonia El Rubí where gunmen shot a male identified as Gerardo Daniel Pérez to death inside an auto shop. At approximately 11:41 p.m., a male identified as Javier Tapia Medina was murdered by gunfire outside his home in colonia Buena Vista.

Just after midnight on Thursday morning, residents in colonia Camino Verde reported the discovery of an abandoned black plastic drum containing a package in a plastic bag. The bag was later determined to contain the corpse of a female murder victim accompanied by a threatening narco-message on a piece of cardboard.

At 1:47 a.m., officials located the body of an unknown male murder victim at the intersection of the Rosarito-Tijuana Transpeninsular highway, in colonia La Gloria. According to investigators, the victim, who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds, was wrapped in a blanket bound with tape. About two hours later, an unidentified male of approximately 25, was killed by multiple gunshot wounds in colonia ejido Francisco Villa.

At 06:05 a.m., investigators of the State Attorney General’s Office (PGJE) were summoned to the rural area of Lázaro Cárdenas ejido, where police discovered three unidentified murder victims displaying signs of trauma. Several hours later at approximately 10:30 a.m., officials found another unknown male murder victim at the edge of the Camino al Vergel bridge. The decomposed body displayed signs of violence.
