Ciudad Juarez, the Silence Continues -- 12/21 at 9 PM ET/ 10 PM PT
In Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican border city with the US, more than 500 women have been murdered and well over a thousand continue missing in what is an ongoing national tragedy. This state of affairs, which began in 1993, seems to have worsened with the passing of time. According to official figures, of each ten femicides last year alone, four were attributable to domestic violence and the remaining six to organized crime. What's worse, there is an ongoing attempt to disguise 2,000 plus of these crimes committed last year as simply narcotics related. Now there a chilling new template for the victims: young middle class girls. As well as a new theory on motive: human trafficking. This documentary also revisits and brings up to date many of the cases examined in the original "Silencio en Juarez" special.
