A 23-year-old Mexican fitness model was found brutally murdered in her Tijuana home Sunday night.
Alondra Getsemani Villaseñor had been shot in the head and stabbed several times, according to the Herald of Mexico.
Her body was discovered by her mother, who had gone to check on her daughter after she was unable to reach her on the phone.
Authorities believe that Villaseñor—who had worked at a local gym and as a fitness model—had been dead for more than 24 hours when she was discovered.
Investigators found a 9-millimeter cap and two small bags that contained what appeared to be marijuana at the scene, according to Notimex.
Witnesses reported seeing someone in a red vehicle flee the area; however, no arrests have been made in the case as of yet.
Villaseñor’s Facebook page is filled with images of happier times as the 23-year-old worked out at the gym or happily posed around the city.
Her death is the latest in a string of murders of women in the area, the Herald of Mexico reports.
Tijuana has seen almost 1,800 murders this year, according to a report earlier this month from The Guardian that called Tijuana “one of the world’s most deadly cities.” In 2018, the number of murders reached 2,518.
Experts have speculated that much of the violence can be attributed to a dispute about Tijuana’s drug trade.
“It’s devastating what is happening here,” a man who asked to remain anonymous told the news outlet. “It is out of control.”
