“He told me he was sorry but he didn’t look me in the eye. He didn’t look at me, he looked at the older man. He even told me that if he didn’t believe me that Marta wasn’t there, that he could come in and see him. But I told him no, that I trusted him », she explained before the jury. «I have that shame of saying why I didn’t pass because, anyway, my daughter was still inside. If the same thing had happened, my daughter was still there », she has clarified.

I replied that I would never do that », she asserted. “In the end, he reluctantly filed a complaint with me that had seven lines and because I insisted,” she added.

“I picked up the phone and threw it on the ground. I went crazy because I couldn’t believe what they were telling me. My husband took it and they told him everything. It is very strong to be told that this man found my daughter dead and that he dismembered her. That a mother does not have to hear. Because she? My daughter was incapable of harming anyone. My daughter was kind, she helped everyone and they tell you that they are looking for her through garbage containers… We shouldn’t have to hear this », she remarked.

“As of today I don’t have my daughter. Why don’t I have my daughter? Why doesn’t she tell her where she is? I just want to get her back, no one is going to give her back to me alive, but she has stolen my daughter and is stealing my duel», the visibly moved woman has added, who has concluded by saying that she has to «do justice for her».
