On Tuesday October 8th, San Miguel de Allende lived a violent day (again).
At 7:30 p.m., a 28-year-old man was shot dead in the neighborhood known as Ejido de Tirado; and earlier, at 2 p.m., a semi-buried body in advanced state of decomposition at Colonia Loma Blanca.
The murder occurred outside a grocery store on Hades Street in the Olimpo neighborhood, when the victim, identified as Miguel, was coming out of the store and armed subjects shot him eight times.
The other incident occurred around 2:00 p.m. when municipal police received reports of foul odor near a dirt road, which leads to the railroad tracks on 10 de Mayo street, in Colonia Loma Blanca. In fact several street dogs were digging out what appeared to be a human leg.
Upon arriving in the area, the security agents found, semi buried under a mesquite tree, a body, with traces of violence, half buried, still wearing blue denim pants. The lower extremities protruded from the ground while the upper body was buried.
In recent weeks, San Miguel de Allende has witnessed violent events such as the finding of dismembered bodies in different parts of the city.
In addition, on October 3 armed subjects opened fire on a funeral procession leaving two dead and five wounded, and then, on October 6, a drive-by shooting took place at broad daylight during a funeral.
