Police chief Marisol Valles Garcia has been fired, an official in Praxedis G. Guerrero, Mexico, said Monday.
The 20-year-old criminology student made headlines when she took the reins of the police force in one of the most violent cities in the border state of Chihuahua. It's common for police officers in Praxedis to be abducted and killed.
"Marisol did not show up for work this morning as she was expected," town secretary Andres Morales said. "Since she was on a personal leave that expired today and did not reach out to us over the weekend, she now faces termination.Â It is now an official matter.Â We don't know anything about her whereabouts. Our attempts to get a hold of her during the weekend were unsuccessful."
Praxedis Mayor Jose Luis Guerrero told CNN last week that Valles Garcia was on personal leave because her 8-month-old baby was sick. He said she was expected back at work Monday.
"Marisol, in fact, still works here and she's still getting paid. She comes back on Monday," he said.
Praxedis is located about 35 miles southeast of Ciudad Juarez, one of the bloodiest cities in world.Read CNN's full coverage of the young police chief's firing
Fired for being dead.
If she were a Wisconsin state senator she'd still have a job.
shes probrally dead sad to say and when i first heard of this i knew it would happen why not its happened to more cops than none down there
Give her credit for coming us with a far more creative path to migrating than the traditional anchor baby approach.
This way, her whole family gets to stay legally through amnesty. Expect a flood of short term sherrifs applying soon...
GOT FIRED FOR NOT SHOWING UP FOR WORK BUT ALSO NO ONE HAS HEARD FROM HER –THAT SAYS ALOT
She is 20 years old? Obviously no one there ever employed a 20-year-old. They tend to not show up from time to time. You yell at them or fire them, but it is not unusual. Hey, you are the ones who hired her to be police chief...
The last I heard...Friday I think...she was here in the US asking for asylum. Smart of her not to tell the folks back home what she was up to else her head would be the next one found in a paper sack. She has guts, I'll give her that. I didn't think she'd live a month after she took the job.
Check the border.
Probably climbing over the fence right now so she can have a baby in the USA and get welfare.
St8524, to scared to use your name, your mother is a wetback also!
Wai a minute, didn't i read last week that she had fled MX and is now in the US, due to death threats?
Is this a joke? not bad for monday... jajajajajajaja,,
At 20 years old I was still playing nintendo
@ Harvey look around dumb@as this country will soon be dominated by minorities and racist b@stards like u will no longer be relevant!
So they just fire her instead of finding out if she's dead or alive. How cold!
How do they know she hasn't been abducted?
