A few hours after the “Grito” (Cry
of Independence), sicarios readied their weapons and made the Defensores de la
República colonia tremble by executing a mother and child, the child was only
10 years old. 

On Tuesday night, Leonela and Jade – family members- were walking
along Norte 9-A and Poniente 108 streets, in the said neighborhood of the
Gustavo A. Madero area in Mexico City.

 At around 8:10 p.m., the women
were surprised by men traveling on a motorcycle, who shot them directly and
without warning, and then disappeared into the streets.

 The neighbors at first confused
the shots with the pyrotechnics of the national holidays, but later they
discovered that the victims, aged 32 and 10, were lying on the sidewalk.
Although they requested ambulances immediately, upon arrival, the paramedics
could only confirm that both had already died due to the gunshot wounds they
presented to their heads.

The adult was identified as
Leonela Bravo Arguijo, 32 years old and the 10 year old as Jade Angeline.

Witnesses told the elements of
the Lindavista Sector that they only managed to distinguish a black motorcycle
on which the alleged assailants fled. In minutes, the area was surrounded by
neighbors, who were already getting ready for the celebration of the
anniversary of the Independence of Mexico. After the experts collected the
evidence and removed the bodies, the Public Ministry Agent put together an
investigation folder under the femicide protocol to clarify the motive for the
attack.
