A baby cut from a Mexican woman’s womb survived

An 8-months-pregnant Mexican woman died after cutting open her unborn baby in an attempt to tear it apart, authorities say – but she miraculously survived.

Rosa Isela Castro Vasquez, 20, was last seen last Wednesday on her way to meet a woman she had met online and promised to give her baby clothes.This was reported by local authorities.

After Vasquez’s disappearance, her husband alerted police in online chats that indicated he planned to meet the woman at a pharmacy near their home in the eastern state of Veracruz. This was reported by local news.

Surveillance footage shows the expectant mother meeting the suspect outside the pharmacy and getting into a car.

A pregnant woman’s body was finally found during a ranch raid on Saturday, with her unborn child mutilated, prosecutors confirmed.

That day, a woman identified as Veronica “N” raised suspicions when she took the newborn to Veracruz Regional Hospital and could not prove it was hers, local reports said.

Officials confirmed that Veronica “N” and her partner Gonzalo “N” “had a newborn minor child with them when they were taken into custody and he was rescued safe and sound.”

The pair appeared before a judge on Monday charged with kidnapping and femicide.

They allegedly cut up the victim to remove her fetus because the assailant was unable to have children herself, an official involved in the investigation told Agence France-Presse (AFP).

According to official data, more than 3,700 women were killed in violence-prone Mexico in 2021, of which about 1,000 were classified as femicide.

Similar heinous crimes, although rare, have also been committed in the United States. Last month, 21-year-old Taylor Renee Parker was sentenced to death in Texas for the October 2020 murder of 21-year-old Reagan Michelle Simmons-Hancock and her infant daughter in New Boston.
