Juarez Rape-Avenging Vigilante Calls Herself 'Diana the Hunter'


A woman calling herself “Diana the Hunter” is claiming responsibility for the deaths of two male bus drivers in northern Mexico. According to messages she’s sent to the media, all that murder isn’t for naught— it’s to avenge the rape and murders of hundreds of women in Ciudad Juarez.

Two bus drivers were shot in the head by a blonde wig-wearing woman who stopped their respective vehicles during their routes last week. Witnesses describe the woman as being about 5’4″ and in her fifties.

But here’s where the story gets revenge porn-esque — according to Raw Story, a person claiming to be “Diana the Hunter” released a statement to local media outlets that contains the following chilling text:

“My colleagues and I have suffered in silence, but they can no longer keep us quiet.”
“We were victims of sexual violence by drivers who worked during the night shift at the (plants) in Juarez. While many people know about our suffering, nobody defends us or does anything to protect us,” it said.
“They think that we are weak because we are women,” the message said, warning that there would be more deaths.
“I am an instrument of vengeance.”

Since 1993, more than 300 women and girls have been murdered and countless others raped in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico. Frustrated activists speculate that authorities’ frustratingly slow and inept response to the killings is due to the fact that many of the women victimized were poor and employed by assembly plants outside of the city and thereby viewed by society as disposable.

The bus drivers targeted by “Diana” operate routes that transport women who work in the assembly plants that employed a large portion of the women who have been murdered. More than a dozen rapes that allegedly occurred along those very routes are being investigated by authorities, who suspect that “Diana” may be among the victims. She remains at large.

Paging Quentin Tarantino.
