Photo: Juarez Mexico Female Vigilante Killer
Mexican authorities are investigating whether the execution style murder of two Cuidad Juarez bus drivers is the work of a female vigilante killer.
Last week two city bus drivers were shot in the head one day apart by an unidentified female wearing a blonde wig. The killer now known as “Diana la cazadora de choferes” or “Diana the Hunter of Bus Drivers” boarded the bus, approached the driver, shot him then quietly exited all in a matter of minutes.
One witness claims the female assassin told the second victim “You guys think you’re real bad, don’t you?” That claim started the female vengeance theory. Then authorities reportedly received an email stating the female vigilante killer’s grievances that struck a cord with the women of Juarez.
The email spoke of the sexual violence women who ride buses to work have to endure at the hands of the drivers, especially those that use city buses to get to border factories at night. Currently authorities are trying to verify the authenticity of the email.
It was bus drivers that were implicated in the disappearance of over 100 Juarez women working at border factories, known as maquiladoras, back in the late 1990’s. Many of the women went missing after riding the bus to work. The two murdered bus drivers were working the route used by women working at maquiladoras.
This Mexican border city, once known as the world’s deadliest cities, near El Paso, Texas is use to violence especially violence against women. Currently Juarez is investigating 12 sexual assaults of female passengers aboard city buses and numerous cases of human trafficking. Authorities are wondering if one of the victims turned herself into a vigilante.
The killer warns in her email “I am an instrument of vengeance.” “While many people know about our suffering, nobody defends us or does anything to protect us.”
That is until now.
