Asesinan a Dos Menores Hondurenos en Una Cuarteria de Tijuana, Una Mas Se Salva
Por, Ines Garcia Ramos - 12/18/2018
"Two Honduran teenagers from the migrant caravan in Tijuana were murdered by a group of men who deprived them of their liberty in a Central Zone barracks in an attempt to rob them. A third minor managed to escape.
The Deputy Attorney General confirmed that these are the first intentional homicides committed against the members of the caravan that arrived in Tijuana in November.
The two bodies were found lying on the public road in the Central Zone with traces of strangulation and in one of the cases, with a knife wound.
Deputy Attorney Jorge Álvarez explained that on Saturday, December 15, three teenagers between 16 and 17 years old walked from the shelter where they lived to the Central Zone when they began to talk with some young people.
During the conversation, the children told them that they would change a check, which was not true, so the women invited them to their home to have sex.
However, once inside the cuartería, one of the girls made a call and a group of men arrived, who demanded the money and when they saw that the migrants did not count on him, they murdered two of them.
The third one managed to escape, but he has physical injuries and has an attempted strangulation mark. After murdering the two teenagers, the killers threw the bodies onto the public highway.
The deputy attorney discarded that the motive of the crime was for the migrant status of the victims, but that it was a circumstantial crime, since with the information gathered, it is understood that the murderers sought to rob them.
He added that the murderers were under the influence of a drug at the time of committing the crime."
Update 12/19/18: Three arrests have been made in this case, all agencias reporting:

For some reason this is printing dark, unintentional and I can't fix it. This next report to me at least is actually good news for the migrantes. We've talked about the NGO's and extremist factions which motivated the migrantes to rush the border. One of these "leaders" was arrested today at El Barretal:
- From Zeta:
Por, Manuel Ayala - 12/18/2018
"Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa, of Honduran nationality and who was self-appointed leader of a group of migrants of the caravan, was arrested this morning by elements of the Federal and Municipal Police, after a fight that was part of the El Barretal hostel .According to witnesses, today he intended to call a march to the sentry box, the migrants in disagreement rejected his convocation and this generated a confrontation since they intended to run it from the shelter.
Authorities pointed out that the migrants themselves do not want it in the facilities for disturbing the order with their comrades, which is why he was arrested and presented with the municipal judge in turn, who will send him to the Municipal District of Offenders.
Guerrero Ulloa is known to have headed last Tuesday, December 11, a march to the United States Consulate in Tijuana, where they delivered a petition requesting the free passage to the US territory or, where appropriate, compensation of 50 dollars. thousand dollars for each one to return to their countries.
Migrants who rejected him this day pointed out that with these requests, this person has only been giving a bad image to the caravan, of which he is not originally part, since he is at least 31 years old outside his country and residing in Mexico, however, he joined the group already in Tijuana."
