The once peaceful Mexican beach hub in Ensenada continues to experience high levels of cartel killings as the murder count for 2018 reaches 100 with only four arrests in response.
According to local media reports, in 2017, the total number of homicides registered by May 16 was 66 compared to 100 this year.
According to Breitbart Texas law enforcement sources, it is believed that the small number of victims identified can be blamed on the presence of street-level dealers and cartel gunmen from outside the area with no local connections.
Breitbart Texas has previously reported on the ongoing cartel violence in Ensenada to include the record-breaking April murder count.
Breitbart Texas also reported on the discovery of six bodies believed to have been victims of cartel violence unearthed last month.
