Three Male Suspects Identified in Connection to Juarez Murders

A man arrested Monday in Denver on illegal immigration charges has been named by US and Mexican authorities as one of three suspects in dozens of rapes and murders in Juarez, Mexico. Taken to El Paso to be turned over to Mexican authorities, Alvarez Cruz was under investigation in Mexico in at least 10 of the rapes and murders in Juarez before he fled to the US, according to the Associated Press. The US ambassador to Mexico has called Cruz’s arrest a “major break” in the ongoing investigation of the deaths of hundreds of women over the past 16 years in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

The two other suspects named by US and Mexican authorities are Jose Granados se la Paz, presumed to still be in Mexico, and Alejandro “Cala” Delgado Valles, found in West Virginia, who is in the process of being deported, reports the El Paso Times.

In May, the US House of Representatives passed a resolution, sponsored by Hilda Solis (D-CA), condemning the violent murders of Juarez women and calling on the US and Mexican governments to solve the open cases and work to prevent any more deaths.
