The victim's body was found in a state of decomposition near a drainage channel on Tuesday 10th September. Her identity and date and cause of death are unknown.

The neighbors say that for days the bad smells tormented them, but they never thought it came from a human body.

The finding was made by a resident of the El Terraplén area, in El Pozón, when he went down the area to look for firewood, according to the newspaper El Universal.

Witnesses told the local environment that the body was in an advanced state of decomposition, aggravated by exposure to the sun that caused severe burns on part of the face. The legs of the deceased were submerged in a small puddle of water.

The causes of death have not yet been determined, but they assume that it was a violent attack.
