Suspicious Headline of the Day

From Excélsior:
The violence reduces home prices by up to 80 percent in five states
I know the violence is bad in Chihuahua, Nuevo León, Michoacán, Guerrero, and Tamaulipas, but 80 percent?! I'm guessing the only way that is true is if the violence actually destroyed a major room inside the house (not the guest cottage or the housekeeper's quarters, mind you), or if the smell of corpses leads to 24-hour nausea. And even then, as a seller, I'd hold out for 40 cents on the dollar.
