A Mexican woman who was eight months pregnant died after a couple who tried to kidnap her unborn child sliced her in half, and she survived the horrific ordeal.
Authorities in the Mexican state of Veracruz said this week they found the dead Rosa Isela Castro Vazquez, 20, who disappeared after a planned meeting with a woman she met online who promised to give her baby clothes. This was reported by the New York Post.
Vasquez’s husband alerted authorities when she didn’t return, and transcripts of online conversations showed he planned to meet the woman at a pharmacy near their home in Veracruz.
Vasquez was caught on surveillance camera standing outside the pharmacy and being escorted to a car.

Vasquez was found dead during a police raid on the ranch on Saturday. Her unborn child was cut from her womb.
Also on Saturday, suspicions were raised when a woman identified as Veronica “N” arrived at an official Veracruz hospital with a newborn baby she could not prove was hers.

Authorities later arrested Veronica “N” along with her partner Gonzalo “N” and believed that Veronica “N” had stolen the baby because she was unable to have children herself.
Veronica “N” and Gonzalo “N” appeared before a judge on Monday and are charged with kidnapping and femicide.
The boy is reportedly “safe and well” and receiving medical attention. This was reported by CBS News.
“Anyone who attacks a woman will not go unpunished,” the Veracruz government website said Monday. “This is how the power of justice changes in Veracruz.”
