Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: La Empresa Suspected in Execution of Teenagers

Video translation is as follows:

Edgar: 2 men executed have been identified. This story concerns teenagers. Their family and friends have condemned the events. Joana Meza has the details. Good evening m’am.

Joana Meza: Good evening Edgar. It was through social networks that the identities surfaced of 2 young teenagers who were murdered in the streets of the Héroes de la Revolución neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon.

Although the State Attorney General’s Office has not confirmed the names of the deceased. Friends and relatives of the victims indicate that they are 17 year old Ever Briones Manriquez and 15 year old Jonathan Peña Castañedo.

The events occurred at the intersection of Calle Alfonso Castañedo and Calle Zafra where the corpses were left. Authorities have collected 10 shell casings of a 9 mm pistol. Simultaneously, it developed that the minors were already being searched for since 10 in the morning by their relatives. 

Edgar: This is something so unfortunate to have happened. We have seen the photographs that have been released by their loved ones. And these are teenagers. There in the distance we can see a corpse. It has a practically youthful complexion to it. In the picture we can see 2 teenagers, a 17 and 15 year old.

It’s unknown at this time exactly what happened. But there have been many speculative comments on social networks. 

There’s no justification for killing a person. Sometimes the authorities use conjecture and say they were involved in this or that. But from here we condemn any act that goes against the life of a person.

Thank you Joana for your report.
