The Attorney General’s Office of Nuevo León reported that the main line of investigation in the case of Yolanda Martínez Cadena points to the suicide of the 26-year-old.
The deputy prosecutor of the state, Luis Enrique Orozco Suárez, indicated that the theory of a femicide has been weakened as the investigation and analysis of expert evidence progress; reiterated that this is not yet a conclusion.
“A detailed initial analysis has been made, it is not conclusive, so far the line of research oriented to a suicide has been consolidated in a greater way,” he said.
At a press conference, he said that an inspection was made in the vacant lot where the body of the young woman was located and a glass of unicel with a written message was found.
