El fotógrafo Chihuahuense José Luis González Palacios compartió en su Facebook una imagen tomada para Reuters donde la silueta de un policía y la puerta de la patrulla se reflejan en la sombra como una silueta de la Santa Muerte.

Gonzalez Palacios compartió esta fotografía el día de ayer e indicó en su publicación que los policías vigilaban la escena del crimen donde tres hombres fueron asesinados a balazos en Ciudad Juárez.

The phenomenon of the female homicides in Ciudad Juárez, called in Spanish the feminicidios (“femicides”) and las muertas de Juárez (“The dead women of Juárez”), involves the violent deaths of hundreds of women since 1993 in the northern Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, a border city across the Rio Grande from the U.S. city of El Paso, Texas. The estimated homicide toll is speculated to be around 400, but many local residents believe that the true count of los feminicidios stands at an estimated 5,000 victims. Most of the cases remained unsolved as of 2003, and are still mainly unsolved today.

The Mexican Being of Light was a mysterious “being of light” sighted on November 10th, 2014, by a man named Ismael Carrillo from Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Ismael was filming at his son’s baseball game and only noticed the figure after re-watching the video later.

The figure appears to be 2-3 feet in height, translucent, and wearing a white gown of sorts. Its head is pointed, and it appears to have some sort of arm-like appendages. Strange surges of energy can be seen emitting from figure’s body. (Source)
