The spokesmen for authorities at Ciudad Juarez who were in charge of reporting on the crime did not credit the escalation of violence in the area.
Violence that, on this occasion, presented itself in the most horrible way possible: performed by a mother on her 2-year-old daughter, out of jealousy and at knife-point.
Elisabeth Aguilera is the name of the 2-year-old girl who has lost her life at the hands of her mother. As the investigation seems to point out, her mother, Linda Elisabeth, a 22-year-old girl, sought to get revenge on her partner by hurting the most precious thing they shared: their 2-year-old daughter.
After the events, the 22-year-old girl self-harmed, causing herself serious injuries that have landed her in the hospital.
The investigation continues while the neighbourhood recovers from this news. Mother and daughter had been living there for a short time, they barely knew anyone. Some neighbours say that the mother did not work and did not leave the house.
They received few visits from family and, occasionally, Linda sold second-hand clothes at a flea market. Little information has been leaked about the girl's father other than the fact that he works at a restaurant.
It was a friend of the family who discovered the crime. Find out more in the video above.
