Is the situation improving? Is the new president actively trying to solve this horrible problem? During the elections it was reported both candidates agreed security was a major issue.

The murder was this month. So how can it be improving?
Also I was anchored next to a Venezuelan cruiser a few months ago and his stories were shocking. He wont go back.

If anything it seems to be getting worse. It's a result of an extremely unstable economy, and given the 50% inflation right now--and picking up steam--I don't see it getting better anytime soon.

I think they used "concubina" as part of the journalistic jargon used in police reports. The colloquial term would be "pareja".

In any case, "concubina" is not demeaning in Spanish, it only describes the legal form of engagement: it means they live together. In many countries of South America that's now is a legal form of marriage, giving rights to the partners that make them in many ways equal to the ones of marriage.
