María Montserrat married Álvaro less than a year ago. She had five daughters, ages 12 to 23. The two minors lived with the couple and, according to their grandmother, they were subjected to violence and sexual harassment by Álvaro.

María Alicia said: ‘He spied on them while they bathed, and my daughter, well, you know that out of love, she was always on his side.’

The victim’s family says that Álvaro, a builder, is addicted to alcohol and drugs and was often violent towards his wife.

The family says the couple often posted about their worship of Santa Muerte on social media. Police reportedly found a black magic altar in his home.

María Alicia said: ‘Drugs, I used them, and I snorted cocaine and everything. Well, I think she had mental problems because to do something like that…

“He adored the one below, well I know because he had Santa Muerte tattooed on one of his colorful legs.”

The victim’s family has not yet been able to bury María Montserrat because the police are still looking for some of her remains, which also need a DNA test.

Her mother demanded: ‘Give her to me so I can bury her and give her a proper send-off.

‘That’s what I want, and don’t let him go free because I think no mother would want her daughter sent to her in pieces. I demand justice.

The Puebla Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the case.
