The bodies of two women from Texas were found with signs of torture, dismembered, bullet wounds and dumped by the side of a road during a trip to visit family in Mexico, according to reports.
(CIUDAD JUAREZ, CHIH. – FGR), January 20, 2022.- The two 28-year-old Mexican citizens, Nohemí Medina Martínez and Yulizsa Ramírez, had been living together in El Paso for a number of years now, but were visiting family in Ciudad Juárez before the double murder took place.
Facebook profiles for the two said both were originally from Ciudad Juárez, while Ms Ramirez was living in El Paso.
Chihuahua Committee for Sexual Diversity director Karen Arvizo stated that three children were left orphaned by the brutal killings of the couple, who were said to have been legally married since July 2021.
Chihuahua State Office of the Attorney General identified two bodies, which were found on Sunday morning about 17 miles apart on the Juarez-El Porvenir Road in the neighbourhoods of San Agustin and Jesus Carranza.
An investigation has been opened into the killings but authorities have not yet identified either a suspect or motive.
The March for Affective-Sexual Diversities in Ciudad Juárez demanded justice for the “terrible and brutal crime of these two lesbian women”.
“It is a double femicide and, surely, a hate crime as a consequence of lesbophobia, since it cannot be otherwise given the cruelty and viciousness with which they were murdered,” the group said in a statement.
“We demand a stop to the messages of hate towards people’s sexual diversity, gender identity and expression by government agencies and the media that give rise to all kinds of aggressions that can validate taking the life of one person,” the statement said.
