APPENDIX

“The Dead Women”

of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico

 

The title The Dead Women is from Dr. Eric J. Lindblom of the Institute of Medicine in Ciudád Juarez, with Harvard University.  The following list was compiled from many different lists posted online, each substantially similar.  Once the lists were collected, biographical information was added, primarily from documents produced by the organization Casa Amiga, which detailed the stories of the numerous victims.  After the information from Casa Amiga was exhausted, other news databases were searched to find further biographical information.  Finally, the victims who were certain to have worked in the maquiladoras were highlighted in order to illustrate the connection between the factories located at the Mexican-U.S. border and the escalated number of murders.  One hopes the stories of these women will not be lost, but will instead rally the support of those who benefited from their work.     Kelly Varsho, Research Assistant to Elvia R. Arriola, Candidate for J.D., Northern Illinois University College of Law, 2008.

The skeleton of a woman was found 1.24 miles south of the cemetery in the El Sauzal Viejo population. It is calculated that the body was there for about 40-60 days and the autopsy reveals that the cause of death was asphyxiation by strangulation, however it is not possible to establish whether victim was raped. The victim had been missing since the 7th of March after having gone to the maquiladora, “Stracted” to ask for work. The preliminary necropsy establishes that there were cuts on the neck and stomach, but due to the state of the body it was not possible to establish whether the victim was raped. It is estimated that the victim had been dead for about 2-3 weeks. The coroner’s report was done on Friday at 20:00 hours after agricultural workers found the body in a cultivation ditch located about 820 yards west of the Juárez Porvenir highway and 109 yards north of Puente YáĖez local path. The body was completely naked, however her underclothes were found nearby. The victim’s height was 5’4”, long dark brown hair pulled back in a dark green ribbon and a metal rubber band at the end. On the right wrist the victim had another rubber band (white) and on the left ear a small earring. These deaths have been related to those in the serial murders in Lote Bravo y Lomas de Poleo. A uniform was found like the ones that are used by workers in maquiladoras, so it is assumed that she worked in a maquiladora (factory). The victim is identified as Silvia Guadalupe Díaz, missing since the 7th of March, age 22. A three month-old boy and a three year-old girl were left orphans. Her husband’s name is Pedro Montelongo.
