Who was Yrma Lydia ?

A Mexican singer was shot to death by her husband in a Mexico City restaurant, local authorities reported Friday.

Yrma Lydia, 21, who was just beginning her career in music, was shot Thursday night at the Suntory Del Valle restaurant, in the south of the city, when she was attacked by her partner, Jesús Hernández Alcocer, 79 years old.

‘A man shot his wife three times, he is already detained along with another woman who accompanied him,’ said Omar García Harfuch, Secretary of Security of Mexico City.

According to witnesses, after an argument, a gray-haired man shot the singer, who turned out to be his wife.

Arrested

Alcocer tried to bribe the police to let him escape in the company of one of his security guards, who was also arrested.

According to the newspaper El Universal, Lydia had participated in some presentations of Grandiosas 12, a series of concerts in Mexico and the United States that brings together renowned Central and South American singers, such as María Conchita Alonso and Dulce and Alicia Villareal.

An informant said that Alcocer has previously been accused of extortion.

Gender violence has intensified in Mexico in recent years with an average of 10 women murdered daily.

It is part of a continuing upward trend in crime under President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

He faced questions Friday about the fact that there have been more murders in his three-and-a-half years than in his predecessor Felipe Calderón’s six.

López Obrador often campaigned on Calderón as responsible for senseless violence.

Already 10 police officers have been killed in 2022 in the most violent state in Mexico, Jalisco.

Obrador has stated that his administration is no longer focused on arresting drug cartel leaders, and in 2019 he ordered the release of a captured Sinaloa cartel leader to prevent bloodshed.

López Obrador has implemented a strategy he calls “hugs, not bullets” and at times appears to tolerate the gangs, even praising them at one point for not interfering in elections.

When asked in his daily morning press conference if he intended to change his strategy, López Obrador said: “No, rather the other way around, this is the right path.”
