Teresa Rodriguez Follows Trail of Juarez Murders
More than 400 women and girls have been murdered in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, in recent years. The border city, just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas, is experiencing a unique series of offenses. Horrific crimes are being committed against women, many being found raped, mutilated, their bodies dumped in the desert. Largely, the killings remain unsolved.
For Univision correspondent Teresa Rodriguez, drawing attention to what many consider a failed police response has become an obsession. The former local news anchor conducted her own investigation into the killings and seeks to give an eye-opening account of the Ciudad Juarez murders in her book The Daughters of Juarez: A True Story of Serial Murder South of the Border.
