Itzel was stabbed in the neck while at her home. Neighbours heard her cries for help and called the emergency services, but by the time the authorities arrived she was dead.

Two days later the police arrested the alleged murderer, a 25 year old man named Jonathan Miramontes Hidalgo.

Despite investigations confirming that there were traces of Itzel’s blood on Hidalgo’s clothes, he was released on 13th February 2018 as the police had allowed evidence to become contaminated.
