Chihuahua– In just two months, seven platform drivers have been killed, and one more is missing.
Of them, three have a similar pattern, since they were engaged in foreign trips and lost their contact in the northwestern part of the state.
Six worked for DiDi and one for Uber. After the report of the disappearance of Carlos Iván Gómez Hernández, 31, last Friday, the Nuevo Casas Grandes area lit “red lights” for drivers assigned to the Uber and DiDi platforms.
In the same region, Hugo César Puen-tes Ávila, an Uber driver who made trips between the cities of Juárez and Chihuahua, disappeared on August 20, and who was found dead 72 hours after his absence was reported.
While Rafael Córdova, 47 years old, was found dead inside the Del Monte motel, in the first case known as “DiDis foreáneos”, since he also made trips between Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua, in addition to other points in the northwest area.
Carlos Iván’s wife, 31, said that her husband left last Thursday at 4 in the morning for Janos, but that his last location was in Nuevo Casas Grandes, when he was traveling in a red Journey van .
The driver is dark-skinned, with a small nose and mouth, is 170 centimeters tall, has slanted eyes, and dark, straight hair.
According to the investigation released by the State Attorney General’s Office, the last thing that was known is that Carlos Iván was detained by “apparently authorities” in front of the Nuevo Casas Grandes technology company.
In the case of Hugo César Puentes, it was learned that the last place he was in was Nuevo Casas Grandes at 4:00 p.m. on August 20, after making a trip from Ciudad Juárez to Chihuahua, and apparently a passenger he hired him to take him there. Authorities reported 72 hours later that his lifeless body had been found.
The population is asked that if anything is known about him, they call 911 or 089, since his family is worried and fears for his life.
