She joined the show with women and men of various ages who were all “in search of real love.” She was young, happy, very into fitness and had a strong following on her social media accounts.

3. Neighbors tried to help, but they were too late

Another Spanish website called La Silla Rota says that a passionate discussion caught her neighbors’ attention. When the noise died down, their worries dissipated, but when the argument resumed, they alerted the police. By the time authorities arrived, she had already been killed. The identity of the killer is still unknown. 

4. This might be a trend and officials are denying it

In just the first quarter of the year, reportedly 41 women were murdered in Mexico City. According to the National System for Public Security, the first three months of 2019 saw a 9.6% increase in murders in Mexico since 2018. The report says 8,493 people were murdered between January 1st and March 31st. In December, when Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was sworn in, he campaigned on a promise to reduce violence, but when confronted with these statistics, he denied them and said the murder rate had NOT risen since he took office. The president said he would create a new security force to rein in the violence. The move has since been approved by both houses of congress.
