TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS - JULY 19: (EDITORS NOTE: Image contains graphic content.) The body of Walter Lopez, 24, is viewed in a funeral parlor after he was recently killed during a fight in a pool hall on July 19, 2012 in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Honduras now has the highest per capita murder rate in the world and its capital city, Tegucigalpa, is plagued by violence, poverty, homelessness and sexual assaults. With an estimated 80% of the cocaine entering the United States now being trans-shipped through Honduras, the violence on the streets is a spillover from the ramped rise in narco-trafficking.
