Yucatan occupies the first place in the effectiveness of resolved homicides in the country well above the national average.
According to the National Public Security System, eight out of every 10 homicides committed in the state are resolved and the average duration of a sentence after prosecution is 28 years in prison.
The figure is high when compared to the national average, which is only 22% effective. For example, there are extreme cases like Guerrero, where effectiveness is only 10%.
So far this year, 46 homicides have been committed in Yucatán, none of these murders were related to organized crime.
The number of murders is similar to the figure registered last year; Yucatán has the lowest number of murders in the country.
80% percent of them have been resolved and the alleged perpetrators are under judicial process or awaiting trial.
The coordination and cooperation between authorities and citizens are key. The last of the crimes resolved was that of an elderly couple in the municipality of Temozón. Initially, everything seemed to indicate that it was a robbery; however, after the investigations it was determined that the alleged perpetrator of the crimes was the couple’s own son.
After almost a week of investigative work, sufficient evidence was gathered and the arrest warrant was requested.
The police managed to capture the alleged criminal, who was taken before a control judge, who was finally prosecuted for the crime of double qualified homicide.
Two homicides that are still a mystery, because they have not been resolved are those committed in Caucel. One of them was in August, when the body of a man was found with eight stab wounds. There were no doors or forced windows, so it is suspected that the victim knew his attacker. However, no arrests have been made so far in relation to this crime.
