A Central Mexico man was arrested after his Tinder date went missing and her clothes—along with bags of human flesh and bones dissolved in caustic soda and hydrochloric acid—were found in his house.
DNA testing showed that the dissolved flesh belonged to Francia Ruth Ibarra, 26, who was first reported missing on Dec. 3, when she failed to show up for a planned movie theater outing with her friends.
At the time, worried friends scoured her social media and discovered she had been dating Emmanuel Delani Valdez Bocanegra, 26, who she had met on Tinder. The two had attended the same university.
Police believe Bocanegra dissolved Ibarra’s body after she refused to have sex with him, local outlets reported.
After finding Ibarra’s remains, police captured Bocanegra in Mexico City, where he was reportedly nonchalant about his arrest.
