Vicky was a hairdresser who was attacked by a neighbour named Delfino. She had been threatened by him before and had reported him to the police.

When detained Delfino ranted that "he was a saviour like Jesus and that he killed the homosexual stylist with machete slashes because he was the demon and he did not want him to do any further harm”.

The murder took place on Calle Venustiano Carranza de Bonfil.
