Anguish in Mexico over murdered ‘girl in red socks’ – World | The …

MEXICO CITY: Kneeling at four-year-old Lupita’s grave, Mexican activist Veronica Villalvazo spoke to the murdered girl as if she had known her all her short life.

“Hey girl,” she said, laying flowers on the earth.

In reality, Villalvazo never met the child long known only as “the little girl in the red socks”. But she was determined not to let her be just another anonymous statistic in the wave of violence against women and girls in Mexico.

Lupita’s semi-naked body, beaten and sexually assaulted, was found in a Mexico City suburb on March 18.

No one came forward to claim her, and for months, she was known only by the clothing she had on when locals found her in a vacant lot: a pair of bright red socks.

Neighbors blast Minneapolis officials for failing to quickly clean up bloody crime scene

Residents of a north Minneapolis neighborhood blasted city officials on social media for failing to clean up blood from a sidewalk where a mortally wounded teenager was found on New Year’s Day.

The victim, Ahkeem D. Robinson, 18, of Big Lake, Minn., later died at a nearby hospital. The slaying, the city’s first of 2018, remains unsolved.

Almost as soon as police left, images of the crime scene started popping up on True north Minneapolis, a Facebook page where residents go to air gripes about problems and crime in their neighborhoods.

“CHILDREN WALKING THROUGH AN OPEN BLOODY GRAVE, BECAUSE THE CITY DOES NOT FIND VALUE IN CLEANING UP AFTER WE ARE KILLED HERE IN NORTH MINNEAPOLIS,” blared one post by the page’s founder, Philip Murphy.

The post accompanied a video of a small child trekking through a patch of blood-spattered snow, frozen by subzero temperatures.

Diane Kruger winningly anchors the wrenching tragedy of ‘In the Fade’

“In the Fade” does not tell a happy story, not even close. But it is a powerful film, one of the nine shortlisted for the foreign-language Oscar, and it is elevated, as it would need to be, by Diane Kruger’s superb performance in the central role.

An international star and former model who is fluent in both French and English (she won a SAG Award as part of the “Inglourious Basterds” ensemble), Kruger had never acted in her native German before.

But she was so successful in this film’s terribly difficult role of Katja that her walking off with Cannes’ best actress award earlier this year was universally applauded.

“In the Fade” is written and directed by Fatih Akin, one of Germany’s top directors whose breakthrough film was 2004’s pitch-black romance “Head-On.”

“In the Fade” (named after a song by Queens of the Stone Age, who did the soundtrack) is at its core a
