The body of a woman was found on the slopes of the La Malinche volcano in the area between the states of Tlaxcala and Puebla. The authorities reported that it could correspond to the activist María Eugenia Ocampo, who had been reported missing in Puebla.
The discovery was made by a group of people on the night of Tuesday, January 3, in a ravine, when they were circulating in the area between the municipalities of Teolocholco and San Pablo del Monte.
The emergency team and authorities arrived on the scene and determined that the woman had no vital signs.
The body could be that of María Eugenia Ocampo, who disappeared in Puebla, because after investigations by experts from the Tlaxcala Attorney General’s Office ( PGJ ), they indicated that the identity of the woman could be that of María Eugenia Ocampo Martínez, originally from Morelos, who disappeared on December 21, 2022, in San Andrés Cholula, Puebla.
The authorities observed that the body found on the slopes of the La Malinche volcano bears resemblance with particular signs and clothing with the disappeared María Eugenia Ocampo, a 43-year-old psychologist, for which reason the results of the legal necropsy are awaited to determine if it is of the psychologist and if the type of injuries coincides with femicide.
