Femicides in Mexico

Jazmín’s death occurred amid the resurgence of the wave of violence against women in Mexico. One of the femicides that he has shocked at the national level is that of Ariadna Fernanda López Díaz , whose body was found on a highway in Tepoztlán, Morelos.

On October 30, Ariadna was in a bar in the Countess in Mexico City, then in a meeting in an apartment from which the next day she would have been taken lifeless by a man, identified as Rautel “N” , who is already disposition of the authorities.

Likewise, the death of Lidia Gabriela , a young woman who died after jumping from a taxi in Iztapalapa, caused great indignation. The woman felt in danger after the driver did not let her get off at the place where she requested it, so she made the decision to jump in an attempt to get to safety.

Fernando “N”, the taxi driver, was apprehended on November 5. A second version of the events, shared by a witness, indicates that he would have thrown her from the moving car.
