In a disturbing incident that has left the Naucalpan community reeling, a 13-year-old high school student was found dead on September 22nd. Ivonne, a student at Jesús Reyes Heroles High School, was reportedly the victim of a violent attack carried out by two men in the municipality’s northern wooded region.
As initial reports detail, Ivonne and her schoolmate, Jessica, were ambushed in an area called Rancho La Palma. An alleged aggressor, known in the neighborhood for selling PET bottles, confronted the two girls with a knife. His intentions were far from benign. While Jessica, who some believe to be Ivonne’s cousin, narrowly escaped, Ivonne tragically didn’t survive the assault.
Francisco, a local from La Palma who came to Jessica’s aid, recounted the harrowing ordeal from Jessica’s perspective: “Mom, come and get me, they attacked me, they stabbed me”. When her mother inquired about Ivonne, the bleak response was, “They killed her cousin”. It was Jessica’s heart-wrenching cries that galvanized the community into action.
Swift police response
Upon receiving the alarm raised by Jessica, residents immediately informed the police. Municipal Police officers promptly launched a search operation in the dense woods between La Palma and Colinas de San Mateo, where they stumbled upon Ivonne’s lifeless body.
