Paola was tortured, raped and beaten to death. Her killer then threw her body into the street a short distance from her home.

According to her brother, the woman was engaged in sex work and every day she placed herself on Avenida Marte R. Gómez, at the intersection with Mar Caribe Street, in the Valle de Aragón neighborhood to wait for her clients.

A partner of Paola says that the last time he saw her was boarding a green Jeep Cherokee car, model of 2010, which was driven by a man. That was at 9 o’clock at night. Twelve hours later the neighbors found his body in a vacant lot, apparently the woman was dragged to that place.
