FGE reports arrest of two in Cancun child abuse murder case

Cancun, Q.R. — The Attorney General of the State reports the arrests of Marco H and Anahí B for the crime of femicide to the detriment of a minor victim of reserved identity pursuant to an arrest warrant.

In a press conference, the FGE explained that on September 16, both Marco H and Anahí B reported to Benito Juárez emergency services regarding the severity of the minor due to illness, for which they requested medical assistance. Upon medical emergency arrival, paramedics reported that the minor no longer had vital signs.

Personnel from the State Attorney General’s Office then interviewed the girl’s relatives, all of whom, the FGE says, claimed the child had accidentally ingested poison. However, officials noted that the minor had various injuries for which relatives claimed was caused by a recent motorcycle accident while riding with Marco H, the mother’s boyfriend.

During his press release, Oscar Montes de Oca Rosales reported that after an autopsy, the results revealed that the child did not die of poisoning, but rather showed signs of physical violence. He reported that an investigation confirmed that the minor was a victim of child abuse.

Based on evidence, an arrest warrant for Anahí B and Marco H was issued for the crime of femicide in the death of the minor on September 16, in the Tres Reyes neighborhood of Cancun.
