Possible homicide of Colombian in Miguel Hidalgo was captured on video, says SSC
The four murders of South American escorts and models registered in the first half of the year – the last one, the Colombian Laura Cristina – unveiled a dispute between Venezuelan and Colombian traffickers in the country.
These groups emerged after the arrest of Ignacio Santoyo, El Sony, founder of the ZonaDivas portal, where some of the women were forced into prostitution. This is also revealed by friends who are also escorts of the victims, who detailed that the “business” model remains the same; they recruit young people in Venezuela mainly, taking advantage of the situation in that country, and bring them to Mexico via Cancun, and then be distributed in the northern and central regions.
They are also advertised on websites and others on social networks under the concept of “independent”, but this is not the case, because traffickers manage their Twitter accounts. The testimonies, reinforced with the investigation of the federal and local authorities, show that traffickers force women to work for those who enter them illegally into the country; However, “the competition” offers attractive offers to go with them, which unleashes the conflict.
Those who refuse, according to the testimonies collected, are intimidated and threatened, as are those who betray the modus operandi with the authorities, to such an extent that they kill them.
“The problem is that they [people traffickers] continue to see us as merchandise. Colombians want you to work for them and Venezuelans too. Neither one of us cares if we want to or not, or if we are already tired of that life. “This year they killed two Venezuelans who didn’t want to change sides and two Colombians are already going.
We are still being killed and the worst thing is that not one authority helps us, ”said a Colombian escort who requested anonymity for security. Advances Regarding the investigation of the murder of Laura Cristina, the local police announced that she has videos in which a probable person is observed entering the Grand Tower complex, in the Miguel Hidalgo mayor’s office.
In this regard, the Secretary of Public Safety (SSC), Jesús Orta Martínez, said that these images are part of the evidence found in the home of the woman from Ibague, Colombia.
“There are several indications, there were traces in the blood and other indications that the prosecutor’s office is following; We still have not identified the material author, ”he said. According to data in the research folder, Laura was approximately two years in Mexico City and was engaged in escort service through a website.
The day before the discovery of her body, according to the domestic worker of the home, three men arrived at the apartment at different times, and that at the end of her day, at 5:00 p.m., Laura sat down to watch television.
The owner of the department also arrived at the scene, who said that the day before his murder he had communication with the victim, who told him that he could not pay the rent for economic reasons. The building where the victim was found has four 23-story towers, four closed-circuit cameras in the reception area, one in the first level waiting area, and eight private security elements of the Global Risk Prevention company.
