Bella was shot dead in her salon by assassins who posed as clients. She was an exotic wrestler with Territorio Lucha Libre.

The exotic wrestler known as Bella de París was shot to death inside her aesthetic in the municipality of León, in the state of Guanajuato. Although the events occurred around 6:00 pm last Thursday, December 21, it was not until this weekend that the murder of the gladiator was echoed on social networks and the media.

According to local media, the 38-year-old athlete, widely known in the state, was killed by two armed individuals who entered her beauty salon and posed as clients.

The business is located on calles Elena and Lucrecia in the Peñitas neighborhood. In the attack another person who was inside the premises was also injured. The subjects managed to flee and so far have not been located.

After this news was announced, fighters, referees and fans have demanded that justice be done and those responsible for [Bella's] crime be found, while at the same time they lamented the unfortunate death.

“The entire team that makes up Territorio Lucha Libre joins us in the unfortunate loss of the wrestler “Bella de Paris”. We extend our condolences and quick resignation to her family and loved ones. Rest in peace,” the Territorio Lucha Libre collective said on social media.

According to a resident of the area interviewed by the media, the subjects shot at least eight times at the fighter.

The murder of Bella de Paris is not the first of this type, at least in Guanajuato, where gladiators have been the main victims of similar events. In 2022, the murder of Juventud Rebelde, Lepra Mx and Maremoto also caused outrage at the national level, crimes committed by alleged members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
