Crime Wave Continues

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 01 May, 2011

(Acapulco, NA 30 April) Over the weekend, three men were found murdered in a hotel room in Costa Azul, thought to be a safe house for narcotics gangs. The locale has no signage, but serves as a guest house on Horacio Nelson, near the Costera Alemán. They were bound and blindfolded, and had their throats cut. Police found them by responding to an anonymous phone call. All had military cut hair and wore similar t-shirts, representing some organization. Another incident occurred in the area in the ridge above Acapulco, in La Laja, where a transvestite with breast implants and dyed blond hair was found murdered and stuffed into the trunk of an automobile. There was a storm of gunfire, followed by the burning of two automobiles.

Three other incidents occurred in the industrial suburbs, near the Mexico-Acapulco toll road, where the driver of a Ford Fiesta was shot by automatic gunfire in what appeared to be a mob “hit.” A separate attack caused the death of a 47-year old man nearby the first, as AK-47 gunfire killed him as he was driving his Honda Accord with Mexico City plates. A third victim, age 32, was killed in a drive-by shooting as he was talking to two other persons on the sidewalk, also in the remote suburbs of town.
