The daughters of Juárez : a true story of serial murder south of the border by Teresa Rodríguez( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than twelve years the Mexican border city of Juárez has been the center of an epidemic of horrific crimes against women and girls: kidnappings, rape, mutilation, and murder, with most of the victims conforming to a specific profile--young, slender, and poor. Speculation that the killer or killers are American citizens has led the U.S. government to send in criminal profilers from the FBI, but little real information about this international atrocity has emerged. As of 2006 more than 400 bodies have been recovered, with hundreds still missing. Among the theories being considered are illegal trafficking in human organs, ritualistic satanic sacrifices, copycat killers, and a conspiracy between members of the powerful Juárez drug cartel and some corrupt Mexican officials who have turned a blind eye to the felonies. This book is the first to examine the brutal killings and draw attention to these atrocities on the border.--From publisher description

Portrait of a monster : Joran van der Sloot, a murder in Peru, and the Natalee Holloway mystery by Lisa Pulitzer( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2005, Natalee Holloway disappeared from a high school trip to Aruba. Five years to the day later, 21 year old Stephany Flores Ramirez was reported missing in Lima, Peru. Implicated in both crimes was one young man, Joran van der Sloot. A 22 year old Dutchman, van der Sloot has become the subject of intense scrutiny by the media and the public in the years since 2005. He was arrested and detained by Aruban authorities in connection with the Holloway murder, only to be released after questioning. In 2008, during a Dutch sting operation, he admitted to being present for Holloway's death, but later recanted his statement. In 2010, on the five year anniversary of her disappearance, a young business student in Peru named Stephany Flores Ramirez disappeared, only to be found dead three days later in a hotel room, registered to Joran van der Sloot. He was arrested for the murder, and he confessed, but later claimed it was coerced. This book offers a probing look at the man tied to two of the most sensational cases of the decade. With unprecedented access to investigative files from law enforcement in the U.S., Aruba, Chile and Peru, it is a glimpse into the workings of an international manhunt and a chilling portrait of the alleged killer within

El cazador de sombras : un agente de los Estados Unidos infiltra los mortales carteles criminales de México by Hipolito Acosta( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vivir bajo una identidad ficticia y arriesgar su vida eran parte del trabajo diario de Hipólito Acosta, agente del gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Trabajaba regularmente en operaciones clandestinas de gran importancia, infiltrando las bandas criminales de contrabando de inmigrantes y los carteles del narcotráfico mexicano. Las investigaciones de Acosta son legendarias tanto entre las autoridades como entre los miembros de los carteles criminales que contribuyó a neutralizar. Acosta se hizo cruzar ilegalmente de México a Chicago en un camión lleno de inmigrantes pobres; se ganó la confianza de una banda internacional de falsificadores; se mezcló con algunos de los narcotraficantes más sanguinarios de México; y fue el objetivo de numerosos complots de asesinato por parte de los criminales a los que envió a la cárcel. El cazador de sombras se lee como una novela policíaca. Este libro, más que un viaje por los bajos fondos de la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos, es una conmovedora revelación de lo que tiene que sobrellevar un agente para garantizar que la ley se aplique y para mostrar el lado humano de la inmigración

It all began when design student Anaèis Bordier viewed a YouTube video and saw her own face staring back. After some research, Anaèis found that the Los Angeles actress Samantha Futerman was born in a South Korean port city called Busan on November 19, 1987--the exact same location and day that Anaèis was born. This propelled her to make contact via Facebook. One message later, both girls wondered: could they be twins?"--
