we need to do, together.

- I gotta go and find these pictures.

- Come on.

Team up with me.

It'll be like old times.

Old times?

That is exactly

what I want to avoid.



You have to do something.

Her killers will come back for her.

People know about this.

You will never be safe.

I know. But, who can we go to?

The police?

They won't protect us.

The government...

all they do is steal.

The newspaper El Sol.

We should go there.

Alfonso Diaz can help us.

Hold on. Wait up!

You can't come here for six years

and expect me to help you.

- You're happy to see me, I can tell.

- Yeah, sure.

I need an inside contact, someone

who knows this world the way you do.

My God, what happened here?

What are these, bullet holes?

The price for telling the truth

in Juarez.

You are a great

investigative reporter.

One of the best when we

worked together in El Paso.

- What are you doing in this place?

- Alfonso!

They're saying the devil took a girl

to hell and she escaped.

The rumors are flying.

- This is getting crazy.

- What?

The Indians believe that the devil

himself is doing these murders.

- The devil?

- Yeah.

And they hand us

these reports all the time.

It changes shape every night.

Some nights he's a dandy.

Some nights an old man.

Keeps the women,

takes them to hell.

According to this new report,

some girl escaped from the devil.


Think there's anything to it?

Who knows? There's nothing

but hysteria and rumors.

Women are being used

for snuff films.

People kill women, take their organs.

Serial killers come from everywhere.

You wanna kill a woman

for any reason, you come to Juarez.

Is there any evidence

to support any of these theories?

Of course. There's evidence

to support all of them.

They may all be true.
