Denisse participated in protests by relatives of inmates of the Ciudad Victoria prison on 6th June and became known on social media with the hashtag #LadyPenal. Several days later a group of hitmen murdered her.

On Tuesday she did not mind getting her clothes dirty, or her hair tousled to try to prevent the passage of the transfer unit of the state police and she threw himself to the ground to get in the way of the heavy truck.

Yesterday she remained stoic in the road of Tamatán, the social networks did not forgive her and in each transmission she was acclaimed; At the scene of the events, it is not said, she is a respected woman. “Denisse for president, Denisse for president!” her followers cheer her.

It is she who calms the spirits, organizes the ranks, speaks to the media, puts her shoulder so that those who suffer, cry.
