Two Texas women were found brutally murdered outside of a Mexico border city.
Julissa Ramírez and Nohemí Medina Martínez were found tortured, murdered, and dismembered in garbage bags on the highway outside Juarez.
Ramirez was an El Paso, TX, resident, but Martinez was still living in Juarez.
It is not quite clear regarding the motive of the murders.
Numerous women have been found murdered in the area as of late.
Whether the couple being gay played into this is also up for question.
The couple leaves behind three children (a boy and two girls).
Authorities are already investigating the murders of 11 other women as well as 50 men in or around Juarez already this year.
The day after these two bodies were discovered, authorities found two more bodies in the area.
Again, it was two women that had been discarded in bags, but one of the women was not dead when authorities discovered the bodies.
However, she later succumbed to her wounds and died.
If you are familiar with this part of Mexico, it is notorious for drug trade and violence.
Last year alone, 1,000 women were reportedly murdered for no other reason than being women.
On Tuesday, protesters took to the streets chanting, “La calle y la noche tambien son nuestras,” which translates to “The street and the night also belong to us.”
