On the day she disappeared, a CCTV outside her school captured her with an unknown woman who has been arrested by police on suspicion of raping, torturing and murdering the young girl alongside her partner .
In a crime that shocked the country, Mario Alberto Reyes Najera is now alleging her partner Gladis Giovana Cruz Hernandez had threatened to abuse their own children according to reports from Mexican media houses.
The Mexican Attorney General’s Office (FGJ) also revealed that the suspects’ three children – two girls and a boy, show signs of abandonment and being sexually assaulted.
Najera’s aunt, Irma Reyes, reportedly reported Hernandez to the police after he told her he wanted his daughter brought to him as a “girlfriend”.
