Lawyer murdered in García Ginerés

Share This
A 55 year old Lawyer, Efrain Ramirez Herrera, was murdered on Friday June 20th at 7:30 pm, at the entrance to his home on Calle 7 (x 24), in Colonia Garcia Ginerés.
The victim had arrived at his house and driven his grey Toyota Corolla into the garage when the assailant approached and shot the lawyer twice, one shot to the head and the other on the left shoulder. After firing, the subject fled on foot. The weapon used for the crime was a 9 mm as empty cartridges were found at the scene.
There are three lines of investigation, but the strongest hypothesis is revenge by an unknown individual whom the victim had stripped of property for not paying a loan.
According to police investigations, the deceased was a “Loan Shark” charging  5% weekly interest. “Most likely it was an act of revenge,” said a source from the investigation.

The other lines of investigation followed by the authorities are: a love affair or a settling of accounts related to organized crime. There was a rumor that the lawyer was linked to the warehouse of stolen vehicles secured last Thursday June 19th by Federal Authorities in the Downtown area.
These are not the characteristics of an execution by organized crime, but that is another possibility,” considered the source.
The victim was known to lend money and charge interest at 20% per month, asking for property documents as guarantee.  Relatives of Ramírez Herrera have not provided details of the murder to help in locating the murderer.  After an autopsy, the body was delivered to his family and buried on Sunday June 22nd.
