According To FBI Statistics, These Are The 7 Most Dangerous Cities In New Mexico For 2020

The Land of Enchantment, unfortunately, isn’t an enchanting experience for everyone. In a state that has a population of just over 2 million, the reported violent crime rate here is pretty high. The FBI just released findings of reported violent and property crimes in each state and New Mexico had a whopping 11,829 violent crimes in 2018 (the most recent official report), and while math isn’t my strongest suit, it’s not hard to see that this makes the per capita ratio quite high.

In fact, the data website RoadSnacks also listed New Mexico as one of the most dangerous in the country for 2020 based on the numbers. New Mexico was actually ranked as the second most dangerous state, coming in just behind Alaska.

Again, take this information with a grain of salt. Violent crimes like rape and murder are rarely random. These are typically perpetrated by someone known to the victim, such as a spouse, family member, or acquaintance. What are your thoughts about this list? Did any of the cities listed here surprise you?

If you just happen to be a bit of a true crime junkie like yours truly, then you may find some unsolved New Mexican mysteries absolutely fascinating. Read more in 4 Disturbing Unsolved Mysteries In New Mexico That Will Leave You Baffled.
