MEXICO - Seeking desperately Examiner

Mexico is a victim of the biggest wave of violence in its history and all these deaths result in a severe shortage of forensic pathologists. Official figures identify to date about 34 000 deaths linked to organized crime, but only 2,000 physicians have received specific training in this discipline. Forensic teams found in every state in the country are overwhelmed and denounce the lack of seriousness or the deadlock against the majority of autopsies related crimes.

"In Ciudad Juarez, the most violent city in Mexico, the morgues are full and the bodies buried in common graves because nobody is able to indentify," says BBC Mundo. In an attempt to solve the problem, the University of Mexico (UNAM) has opened a new spin for this specialty.
