Sofía's decomposing body was found in a field 8 days after going missing on Friday 6th January. A man has been charged with killing her.

A 26-year-old girl who had disappeared on January 6 when she was traveling to her mother's house in Marcos Juárez was found dead in a field in the Cordovan district of La Carlota. The Córdoba Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed that a body found on Saturday afternoon belonged to Sofía Agustina Bravo .

"As part of the search operation for Sofia Agustina Bravo , in the rural area near La Carlota, a lifeless body was found on provincial route 4," officials reported.

The body was found in a state of decomposition on Saturday afternoon among the pastures located next to the roundabout at the entrance to the Cordoba town.

The case is in the hands of the judicial police of Río Cuarto and this Sunday an autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of her death.

The 26-year-old girl went missing after being last seen on Friday, January 6, in the Cordoba city of La Carlota when she was traveling to Marcos Juárez to go see her mother, but she never arrived.

Investigators reported that Sofía earned her living doing sex work and evidence suggested that she had gotten into a truck before disappearing.

Rodrigo Nicolás Espíndola, 22, was subsequently arrested and charged with the crime of “doubly qualified homicide for having been perpetrated out of hatred of the gender, gender identity or its expression and for having been committed by a man against a woman, mediating gender violence”.
