Juarez, MX (KTSM) — After a sharp decline in murders in Juárez in 2012, violent crime is once again on the rise. 53 people were killed in the city during the month of June, the most violent month so far this year. Most of the victims were shot to death.
That's almost double the number of homicides recorded in October of last year, when only 30 homicides were recorded. More than 10,000 people have been murdered in El Paso's sister city since 2007.
