Municipal Police Chief Slain in Central Mexico

GUANAJUATO, Mexico – The police chief in the central Mexican city of Celaya and one of his bodyguards were found dead Monday, the Guanajuato state Attorney General’s Office said.

Authorities responded at around 7 am to a report of two bodies in Loma de Floras, a community between the cities of Irapuato and Salamanca, and detectives subsequently identified the dead as chief J. Santos Juarez Rocha and a member of his security detail, Manuel Acosta Garcia.

The investigation will be carried out by the Specialized Homicide Unit, the AG Office said in a statement, expressing condolences to the officers’ families and vowing to bring the killers to justice.

Juarez Rocha, with more than 24 years experience in law enforcement, became Celaya’s police chief on Aug. 31, 2016.

Separately, five people were killed Monday at a home in Abasolo, Guanajuato.

One of the fatalities was a 44-year-old policewoman, who was slain along with her husband and two adult children.

A 25-year-old man also died, but two minor children inside the residence were unharmed, the state AG Office said.
