At a press conference, FGJ-CDMX spokesman Ulises Lara detailed that the child’s identity was confirmed by the genetic tests given to her.
The video shown by the Prosecutor’s Office shows that after picking her up at the school, around 6:30 p.m. on February 11, the woman takes Fatima to an address.
Days later this property was located and categorised by the capital authorities, finding three people inside, who were taken to testify.
According to the dependency spokesman, so far there are no detainees.
Lara noted that they are still investigating what happened in the span that the child disappeared and was found lifeless.
Regarding the school, the spokesperson noted that the school did not have a safety protocol for the delivery of the children, so they do not know the identity of the woman who took Fatima.
