Femicide or Parasitic Outbreak?

Last month, the Mexico News Daily and Crimefeed.com reported that a woman’s dismembered body was discovered in an abandoned house, owned by her ex-husband in Taxco, Mexico. According to El Milenio, Magdalena Aguilar Romero’ s arms and legs were discovered by state investigators inside boiling pots on a stove. Next to the kitchen stove, investigators found her fully cooked pelvis wrapped in a burlap sack. The remainder of Romero’s remains were also found in plastic bags half-frozen in the refrigerator. Romero’s mother-in-law, identified as “Silvia N,” was arrested on charges of femicide, and authorities issued an arrest warrant for Silvia N’s son.

If the motive of this case seems bizarre to you, consider Romero’s murder is just one of 23 women reported murdered in the Mexican state of Guerrero in January alone. Femicide has become such a widespread epidemic in Mexico, that according to United Nations Women, in 2016, seven (7) women per day were murdered in mexico, they say, because of their gender.

Like most murders which lack obvious motive, it’s not uncommon for “authorities” to attach labels to explain away their murder. But what’s odd here is the cannibalistic aspects to this case, and the fact that the victim’s mother-in-law was at least partially responsible. Add to this the growing number of cannibal cases being reported, and it seems far less plausible that Ms. Romero was killed just because she’s a woman. Could it be that we’re seeing more and more cases of cannibalism because of the parasite, Toxoplasmosis? Perhaps investigators need to dig further, before this disease of Madness grows to pandemic levels.
