Caracas morgue has received 98 dead bodies so far in February
Twelve dead bodies were taken to the morgue on Monday and Tuesday
Consequently, in average the morgue received 19 bodies per day, and most of them (80%) had gunshot wounds, according to unofficial sources with the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency (Cicpc).
In this sense, Police Chief Elisio Guzmán, the director of Miranda State Police Department, claimed that the skyrocketing murder rate in Venezuela is the result of the Venezuelan State's failure to implement public security policies.
Yamir Tovar (22) and Luis Fabián (21) were subjected by members of a ‘colectivo' (an armed pro-government gang) in the west Caracas neighborhood of Catia on February 20. Their bodies were found tied up and gagged; they were killed by headshots in execution style.
