Murders in Juarez left a Chihuahua General Attorney prosecutor and her son dead while in an unrelated incident body parts were found strewn in a local parking lot.

Juarez located in the state of Chihuahua continues to fight its reputation as one of Mexico’s deadliest cities and has been the focus of President Felipe Calderon’s security resources.  Ciudad Juarez remained Mexico’s deadliest major city in 2011 with nearly 2,000 homicides, or roughly 148 murders for every 100,000 residents, although that figure was down from the previous year, when 3,100 people were murdered.

Meanwhile on Saturday the bullet-ridden body of Ana Lilia Lopez, 45, and her 22-year-old son were found inside their home.  Lopez was a State Attorney prosecutor assigned to the Special Anti-theft unit according to the El Paso Times.

While early this morning two heads and four hands were found in the parking local of the Bandolero bar in Juarez.  Mexican officials have only confirmed that the body parts belong to men.
