Morelos added 17 murders during the past weekend alone

During the past weekend alone, 17 intentional homicides were registered in Morelos, equivalent to 6.6% of the total number of murders counted in the country during the same period.
Figures from the federal government’s daily security reports indicate that one homicide occurred on Friday, May 13, the number rose to nine on Saturday, May 14, and added another seven on Sunday, May 15.
These numbers reflect an uptick in violence in the state in recent weeks.

Data from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP) indicate that in the first three months of 2022, 254 victims of intentional homicide were registered.
Per month, there were 81 in January, 70 in February and 103 for March. The total corresponding to April and, with it, to the first quarter of the year will be announced no later than this Friday, May 20.
The acts of violence in the state, caused by the activities of organized crime groups, are concentrated in the municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Cuernavaca, the capital, such as Temixco and Xochitepec.

A SESNSP calculation, based on the country’s population projection for the period 2016-2050, indicates that Morelos has the sixth highest intentional homicide rate in the country, with 4.9 per 100,000 inhabitants. According to that estimate, the national average is 2.0.
