Beyond narcos (3): Cuauhtémoc and the disappearance of the disappeared

This city in the state of Chihuahua hides a mystery: a high record of cases of forced disappearance and a systemic lack of investigations by local authorities.
Cuauhtémoc presents all the major characteristics of state violence during the War on Drugs. While 1,698 people were officially registered as missing in 2016 in Chihuahua, 351 people were from Ciudad Cuauhtémoc.
