Photo: Marisol Valles on a Missing Persons Milk Carton
Mexico’s own ‘baby’ sheriff Marisol Valles who at the tender age of 19 decided to become Praxedis G. Guerrero’s police chief. She became this rural community’s police chief after her predecessor was killed by drug cartels. Since October she managed a 20 person police force of women only and served more as a community liaison. Well NOW SHE’S GONE MISSING.
Marisol called in sick last week and was given a leave of absence from March 2-7 and when she didn’t return yesterday she was promptly fired. Mexican authorities say they don’t know where she is at, other claims she is seeking asylum in the U.S. after receiving threats on the job and a human rights organization said she is in a U.S. immigration detention center.
We never thought it was a good idea a ‘baby’ sheriff should babysit any town especially one besieged by drug cartel violence. The very authorities that hired her now quickly want the matter forgotten - they should be embarrassed for hiring someone so inexperienced.
Nonetheless we placed her photo on a milk carton the right place to spread the word on missing children.
