Stumbling upon a murder scene is not uncommon in Tijuana. In a country plagued by homicide, the city stands out. There have been more than 800 homicides registered so far this year alone, according to city officials — and that’s only counting the documented killings. Experts say the true number of homicides is higher. The state of Baja California, where Tijuana is located, is also notorious for disappearances. If the past is any indication, many of those people will never be found — and are likely dead. Crime reporters, like [Jesus] Aguilar, are sure to always be busy. But they are also at extreme risk of becoming a victim of the same crimes they are covering. This year, 11 journalists in Mexico have been killed, according to the human rights group Article 19.
