The local prosecutor of Guanajuato, Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre, announced at a press conference that five of the six women who had disappeared on March 7 in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, and were later found dead, had already been identified. The prosecutor did not provide the names of the identified victims or who the sixth unidentified woman was. According to Zamarripa Aguirre, DNA tests were carried out on the charred skeletal remains found on a property in the municipality of Juventino Rosas, and five genetic profiles were established that correspond to five of the six missing women.
The prosecutor also informed us that a search team was able to locate six people at the site, five from Tamaulipas and one Honduran, who were arrested in connection with the case, and firearms, useful cartridges, tactical equipment, drugs, and telephone equipment were seized. According to the prosecutor, it was established that it was members of a criminal group operating in the Laja-Bajío area who took the six women to Juventino Rosas, where they were finally killed.
The skeletal remains found at the site where the women were found are still being analyzed by anthropologists, forensic archeologists, and geneticists, as most of the remains were almost entirely burned. The missing women were Paulina Berenice Reséndiz, 25; Mariana Gutiérrez, 19; Yoselin Daniela Zamorano, 20; Sandra Daniela Paredes, 24; Gabriela Barbosa, 48; and Rosa María Pérez, 42, who were kidnapped in the communities of San José de Guanajuato and Santa Rosa de Lima, belonging to the municipalities of Celaya and Villagrán, respectively.
