A sad reality and unfortunately repeated way to often.... :)
The execution style murdering/killings in Baja Sur, particular in +San Jose del Cabo and +La Paz Baja California Sur BCS continues. All you need to do is check the #policiaca section in one of the opinion websites publishing news and you can do a count and may compare it with one of the global "crime hubs" and per capita statistics and you see how had it actually is.
Of course they (local media and authorities) try to to keep that low-key as their main concern is tourism. After all the years with significant crime they still no understand that sugar-coating does not help a bit.
It is not a question IF but WHEN the excuse of "this is just criminals infighting/turfwars" will no longer apply anymore and visiting foreigner will become targets of kidnappings and/or get killed.
Last night, a new twist in La Paz with the killing of 2 men on the roof of a house.

Couple's dream trip to Loscabos Mexico turns into "holiday from hell" as they are chased from their luxury hotel by "bill collectors" they suspect had Mexican drug cartel connections, who demanded "$10,000 for medical bills"
Ms Gelston claimed the hotel told them to pay the medical center within the next hour but the concerned couple contacted their insurance company, who told them they weren't safe, arranging for them to leave at 2am.
The couple ran to a nearby American hotel however more trouble arose at the airport.
Ms Gelston said an American Airlines attendant and armed Mexican police told the couple they "weren't getting on the flight until we paid [the money] and if we didn't pay it, we would be taken to jail until it was paid".
After negotiations with their insurance company, the embassy and Mexican authorities, the couple were finally able to leave the country.
