An autopsy in Mexico City says the woman was murdered, disputing the state investigation

MEXICO CITY — An autopsy on a local woman found dead in the neighboring state of Morelos showed she was killed by blunt force trauma, prosecutors in Mexico City said Sunday.

That contradicts the Morelos state medical examiner’s report, which suggested the woman choked on her own vomit as a result of poisoning. Conflicting studies suggest that there may have been some attempt to write his death as something other than murder.

The murders of women in Mexico have increased in recent years, and families of many victims say police are slow, sloppy and unwilling to properly investigate their deaths.

Mexico City prosecutor Ernestina Godoy said a new autopsy showed 27-year-old Ariadna Lopez had “several blunt force injuries” on her body and listed her cause of death as “multiple injuries.”

Some initially saw suggestions of police incompetence. Lopez disappeared on October 30 in a central neighborhood of Mexico City. His body was not found until several days later, when cyclists spotted him on a road leading from Mexico City to the neighboring state of Morelos.

His body was only identified by relatives after bikers took photos of the victim’s tattoos and posted them online in an attempt to help identify him.

Morelos authorities quickly took over the case and concluded that Lopez died of acute poisoning.

In another twist, Godoy revealed that police found video of a man who claimed to be Lopez’s boyfriend carrying an inert body from a Mexico City apartment after she disappeared. The prosecutor said that traces of blood were found in the apartment.

The man’s girlfriend, who was allegedly with him and Lopez that night, was arrested, while the man remains at large, Godoy said. He said the man attended Lopez’s funeral and demanded justice in the case.

Godoy asked Morelos state prosecutors to transfer the case to his office.

But Mexico City has its own problems with femicide. Lydia Gabriela, a young woman, apparently threw herself out of a taxi and died on a street in Mexico City on Wednesday. Witnesses said that Gabriela thought the taxi driver was trying to kidnap her.

In the state of Morelos, the killing of women has been particularly bad.

The bodies of five women were found in Cuautla Morelos, south of Mexico City, on Friday. The bodies were found in two different locations in the city, a popular weekend getaway for Mexico City residents.

The Morelos state prosecutor said the killings appeared to have been carried out by a drug gang, possibly as part of a feud. Prosecutor Uriel Carmona said the bodies were found near a handwritten sign often used by drug gangs.
