A 6 year old girl was reported missing on Monday August 20 in the municipality of Tahdziú, Yucatán. She left her aunt’s place to go home and never reached her destination. Finally her body was found on Tuesday Aug. 21 inside a well, around 7 o’clock at night.
The director of the police of that community, Gonzalo Sosa Yerves, reported that around 6 o’clock in the afternoon of Monday Aug. 20, the child was nowhere to be found, but her mother reported her missing until Tuesday morning, so an operative was set up to look for her.
After a search, the girl was found dead inside a well, right there in Tahdziú. The body was taken out from the well by Ticul firefighters.
The authorities stated that the girl died strangled and was beaten on the face. According to forensics tests, the death occurred approximately 24 hours before she was found, which implies that she was murdered shortly after leaving her aunt’s house.
Staff of the Forensic Medical Service (SEMEFO) of the Institute of Forensic Sciences of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) revealed that the cause of death of the 6 year old child was suffocation by strangulation.
Through a statement, the Prosecutor’s Office reported that the autopsy performed on the body allowed to know that she had bruises on her face and head (allegedly post mortem), and that she died approximately 24 hours before being found in that place.
As a result of this fact, the State Attorney General’s Office informs that the Protocol of Ministerial, Expert and Police Action in the Crime of Femicide is active, in order to proceed with the corresponding inquiries to clarify this terrible incident.
On Wednesday, August 22, it was learned that there is already one person detained in relation with the case, and the police is searching for another suspect allegedly responsible for the murder of the girl.
The authorities did not reveal the names of the suspects, but the community of Tahdziú is indignant and in shock after this terrible event.
