Desde 2006 a 2016, fueron descubiertos en México, según registros oficiales, casi dos mil fosas clandestinas donde criminales desaparecieron personas. La barbarie abarca 24 estados del país y uno de cada siete municipios.

“I just ran away, I ran away, I ran as far as I could, to where I could get lost in the black of night,” Mr.… Seguir leyendo »
