256 Women Murdered in Honduras during 2011

Over 256 women have been murdered in Honduras in this year alone.  This is a terrible number of women and absolutely astounding.  What is worse is that very few of these crimes have been solved.

In Honduras, when you read the paper it is very rare to see the paper admit a woman was raped before she was murdered.  The paper will say that the body was found half naked or naked, and things along that line that imply what occurred but they rarely come out and say the woman was raped and murdered.

Recently two little girls of just 13 years old were found dead after they had left out from their home at 7 pm together.  The girls were found in two different locations.  One was found dead close to her home and the other was found in the colonia Villeda Morales.  How can anyone murder two 13 year old girls? These are babies!

Here we don't seek justice we just often hear the family say ...let God take care of it.  That saying of dejalo a Dios drives me up a wall. How are they ever going to get justice if they don't put some effort into discovering who is behind all this? For all we know some of this is the work of a serial killer! No, we just leave it to God and let him sort it out, while more women die every day.

Were these expats or locals? where is there a place to go on the web to speak to expats in Honduras? I'm having a difficult time.
