A 7-year-old girl was murdered in Mexico, fueling outrage over the disturbing number of recent slayings of women throughout the country.
The Mexico City prosecutor’s office confirmed Monday that a body discovered in a rural area on the southern outskirts of the city over the weekend belonged to the girl, who was abducted by a stranger on Feb. 11.
The cause of death has not been released yet for the girl, identified only as Fatima.
Five people have been questioned in the case, and there is video footage of her abduction, according to prosecutors.
The girl’s grandfather, Guillermo Anton Godínez, said Monday that a woman led Fatima away from the school.
She had left the school wearing her uniform, but the woman put a green shirt and pants on her, Godínez said.
The girl’s mother arrived 15 to 20 minutes after the woman already led her daughter away, according to Godínez.
“Justice has to be done, for my daughter and for all women,” Fatima’s mother, Maria Magdalena Antón, declared outside prosecutors’ offices.
Antón claimed investigators made the family wait hours and travel across the city before they could even file a missing person’s report.
