Irma Lydia Biography
Who is Umalydia?
A Mexican singer was shot dead by her husband in a Mexico City restaurant, local authorities reported on Friday.
Yrma Lydia, 21, who was just starting her music career, was shot at the Suntory Del Valle restaurant in the south of the city on Thursday night when she was attacked by her partner, Jesús Hernández Alcocer, 79.
“A man fired three shots at his wife, who has been detained along with another woman accompanying him,” Mexico City’s security minister, Omar García Harfuch, said.
After an argument, a white-haired man shot at the singer, who turned out to be his wife, according to witnesses.
Alcocer tried to bribe the police to run away in the company of one of his security guards, who was also arrested.
According to the Globe, Lydia took part in some performances of Grandiosas 12, a series of concerts in Mexico and the United States that brought together well-known Central and South American singers such as María Conchita Alonso and Dulce and Alicia Villareal.
Alcocer had previously been charged with racketeering, an informant said.
Gender-based violence has intensified in Mexico in recent years, with an average of 10 women murdered every day.
This is part of a continuing upward trend in crime under President Andres Manuel López Obrador.
On Friday, he faced the question of having more murders in his three-and-a-half years than his predecessor Felipe Calderon’s six years.
López Obrador has often claimed responsibility for the senseless violence in the Calderón campaign.
In 2022, 10 police officers have been killed in Jalisco, Mexico’s most violent state.
Obrador said his administration was no longer focused on arresting drug cartel leaders and in 2019 ordered the release of captured Sinaloa leaders to prevent bloodshed.
López Obrador implemented a strategy he called “the hug, not the bullet,” and at times seemed to tolerate the gangs, even praising them for not interfering in the election at one point.
Asked if he planned to change tactics, Lopez Obrador said: “No, on the contrary, it is the right path.”
