Mexico’s largest state rocked by slayings of women

In this Aug. 18, 2017 photo, relatives of murdered doctor and mother, Jessica Sevilla Pedraza, carry a framed portrait of her, a cross, and a box of mementos to be buried alongside her grave, as they arrive for Mass in Villa Cuauhtemoc, Mexico state. Pedraza had been shot in the head and decapitated, and the skin had been flayed from her skull. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
