Ciudad Juárez, Mexico (KTSM) — The search for Juarez bus driver killer Diana the Huntress continues, as we’ve reported two drivers were killed a couple of weeks ago after a female passenger opened fire against them.
Rosalio Arsineaga who has been a bus driver for the past 34 years; said his days haven’t been the same since two of his co-workers were killed on the same route he drives
“my family wants me to stop working but it’s my job what else can I do, there’s logically some fear” Rosalio Arsiniaga said.
”Diana the Huntress” or “Diana la cazadora” who is allegedly responsible for the killings of drivers has claimed that her actions are a result of her revenge against those who killed and raped hundreds of women in Juarez, but the state authorities confirmed none of the killed drivers had a criminal record
“None of them had a criminal history, we talked to their families and neighbors and there are no indicators of any wrong doing” Chihuahua State Spokesperson Arturo Sandoval said.
On avarage thousands of Juarez residents use the public transportation service everyday, many of them say their biggest concern is the lack of security in most of these buses.
“I don’t know what can happen to me on my way to school or when I come back” Juarez resident Jasmine Medina said.
“Yes I’m afraid there’s no security or vigilance” resident Yanira Terrazas said.
“We’re already used to these things, being afraid is not an option” resident Marilyn Escobedo added.
And while some drivers and residents are still fearful, authorities say they’re working to ensure everyone’s safety.
“The prosecution agency can guarantee the safety of all passengers; we have an undercover operation and agents in every bus to prevent any kind of incident” Sandoval concluded.
