Claudia had lived with Enrique at her parents’ home for two months and the same day that they “killed her” she commented that she had decided to separate from him, said her sister Cecilia.

The young woman had been forcibly taken from her home on Sunday night in the La Tinaja community, in Salamanca, and hours later her family received a call from the prosecutor’s office informing them that she had been found dead.

Dan Cano Chávez, Claudia’s father, stated that his daughter died from a blow to the head caused by her boyfriend named Juan Enrique, although “he told the police that my daughter had thrown herself from the truck.”

He commented that Juan said that they were arguing and that my daughter threw herself out the window with the vehicle moving, but she doesn’t have any scratches on her face or body.

He asked to be heard in his claim for justice and that the person responsible for the femicide pay for what he did and that he not be released. “To me he is a murderer,” he said.

He commented that the police managed to stop him “on a fluke” when he was driving at excessive speed: “they stopped him and saw that my daughter was lifeless in the passenger seat.”

He considered that the boyfriend was speeding to get rid of Claudia’s body. “Where would I go to throw my daughter… into a ravine or what do I know, in Valle.”

The La Regla Rota and Feminista Valle de Santiago collectives They accompanied the family in their demand for justice this Wednesday afternoon with a march through the streets of Valle de Santiago. “Claudia did not die, they killed her,” they sentenced.
