The body of 15-year-old Leicy Celina Vargas was found near a highway in Nogales, Sonora after her relatives reported her disappearance three days before.
Her relatives reported that the young woman left her house located in the Luis Donaldo Colosio neighborhood to visit a friend who lives near her; however, she never returned.
The last message that the young woman sent her mother last Sunday afternoon said that “some men were disrespecting her,” then no more was heard from her.
The State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) reported that the body of the young woman was located near International Highway 15, at the Imuris-Magdalena stretch.
The agency reported that investigations are being carried out to clarify the case under the femicide protocol.
