Death: A woman from suburban Chicago was killed in a Mexican massacre that claimed the lives of at least 20 people – This week, a mass shooting at a Mexican cockfighting site left 20 people dead, and now a Warrenville family is left with questions after a 36-year-old suburban woman was among those killed. Melissa Silva’s family is left to mourn following the tragedy, which made international news.
“It was just a random attack,” said the victim. “What happened was a bloodbath,” Melissa’s brother, Alex Silva, said. The horrifying act of brutality occurred in Michoacán, a state where cartel violence has increased in recent years. The slaughter had an impact on Warrenville, which was more than 2,000 miles away.
While the family mourns Melissa’s death, they also hope for a speedy recovery for their younger sibling. Arleth Silva, who was only 16 at the time of the incident, is in critical but stable condition after being shot many times. “She’s in serious trouble.” “All I know is that she was hit in the lung, and I believe the bullet is still lodged near her spine,” Silva explained.
