A pregnant woman died after a pair of womb raiders cut her open by to harvest her unborn baby, authorities in Mexico said Monday.
Rosa Isela Castro Vazquez, 20, was eight-months pregnant when she was kidnapped by a couple who cut the baby out of her womb and dumped her body in Medellin del Bravo, in the Mexican state of Veracruz.
Police arrested the alleged perpetrators after discovering a newborn baby in their possession, the attorney general’s office in the eastern state of Veracruz said in a statement.
They allegedly sliced open the victim to extract the fetus because the woman attacker was unable to have children herself, an official linked to the investigation told the AFP.
Ministerial Police arrested Gonzalo ‘N’ and Veronica ‘N’ as alleged perpetrators of the crime of disappearance committed by individuals.’ ‘N’ is often used in Mexico to obfuscate a suspect’s full name due to local privacy laws.
The suspects, a man and a woman, appeared before a judge on Monday accused of kidnapping and femicide.
The victim was lured to her death through social media with a promise of clothes for her baby, relatives told local media, which said that it was the third case of its kind in recent years.
Rosa Isela had gone to meet a woman who had reportedly contacted her on social media to offer her baby clothes, according to her sister, whose name was not made public.
Footage of the meeting between Rosa Isela and the mysterious woman she met near the airport reportedly shows the woman arriving late and looking around nervously while talking to the victim.
Rosa Isela is then said to have got into a vehicle, never to be seen alive again. Two suspects were detained after the authorities launched an investigation.
The womb raiders Gonzalo ‘N’ and Veronica ‘N’ allegedly sliced open Rosa Isela Castro Vazquez to harvest her infant because Veronica was unable to have children herself, an official linked to the investigation told AFP .
A statement released Sunday by the office of the Attorney General of the State of Veracruz announced that authorities have recovered the baby, a girl, who is alive and well.
Investigators have said that the female suspect, Veronica ‘N’, had been unable to conceive children herself, and had been faking her pregnancy for eight months before the murder.
Veronica, under the guise of a fake online profile, lured Rosa Isela Vasquez away from home on the promise of free baby clothes before she went missing on November 30.
CCTV footage caught the moment Vazquez was meeting Veronica, before being pushed into a vehicle. That was the lat time she was seen alive.
Authorities have revealed that Veronica appeared at a hospital “covered in blood” with the stolen child in her arms as she attempted to register the baby as her own.
The suspects appeared before a judge on Monday, charged with kidnapping and femicide.
