    There are major problems in that area. Besides the women and children, missing and killed there is also drugs, prostitution, forced prostitution, racketeering, and corruption in the government and police officials. They working to clean it up however. The FBI has been conducting some raids down there, and recently they released several hostages that were being held for ransom. It has become an international scandal so the Mexican officials are being forced to deal with it.
    My personal opinion is that the girls they are finding are probably related to the forced prostitution. I have read they do feel that either someone from the police dept. is involved in the killings or that they have been trying to cover them up.
    This article isn't related to the women's killings directly but illustrates the savagery that is happening there
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Located across the U.S. border from El Paso, Texas, this city of 1.3 million people is the home base for the Juarez drug cartel and has witnessed frequent violence related to the drug trade. It has also been plagued by the slayings of more than a hundred women in similar sexually motivated killings.

    MONTERREY, Mexico -- A man suspected of participating in the rapes and killings of at least 10 women in a border city made infamous by the deaths of more than 100 young women since 1993 has been arrested, U.S. officials said Thursday.



    U.S. Ambassador Tony Garza called Tuesday's arrest of Edgar Alvarez Cruz on immigration violations in Denver "a major break" in the investigation into the unsolved deaths in Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas.



    "We believe Alvarez Cruz's arrest will help U.S. and Mexican law enforcement authorities solve numerous cases involving the murders and disappearances of women in Ciudad Juarez and in Chihuahua, and ultimately bring their killers to justice," Garza said

    Wow! Thank you for posting this. I certainly hope they find all those responsible for the disappeared in that city. Even Amnesty International was calling for action on this problem.

    We can only hope but this is the best advance in years. I have always been so disturbed that not enough was being done.

    Mexican government statistics show that the homicides of women in Juárez increased dramatically in recent years: 23 in 2006, 27 in 2007, 117 in 2008 and 306 in 2009.

    In Juárez, the war between two rival drug cartels began in 2008. Part of the government's response was to periodically deploy hundreds of soldiers and federal agents to the border city.
