Five homeless people in Guadalajara killed in their sleep this week


The General Prosecutor’s Office of Jalisco reported that they are investigating the homicides of five homeless people in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara.

The homicides have occurred from October 18 to 24, all with several similarities: the victims are attacked while they sleep and are defenseless; as a weapon, a rock weighing more than five kilos has been used to smash the skull of the victims.

The perpetrator has the strength and physical health to lift a deadweight of more than five kilograms and throw it repeatedly on a target.

According to the first investigations, the alleged aggressor committed the crimes from 24:00 to 05:00 hours, to take advantage of the darkness and the helplessness of the victims.

The evidence collected by the Public Ministry indicate that it is possibly a single aggressor, however, the participation of more people is not ruled out.

The State Attorney General’s Office is reviewing the security cameras of the areas where the homicides occurred.
