Delgado was missing for four days while making a trip in the town of Chamblee, in the Atlanta metropolitan area, according to her husband, Yhony Castro, who reported the case to the authorities after finding masks with blood in the last place where the GPS on his wife’s phone showed a location.
The GBI indicated that the arrest of the three defendants occurred on Saturday after an operation coordinated with the Department of National Security and the Mexican authorities, the country from where they were taken to the United States.
That Saturday, precisely, relatives and close associates of Delgado gave him the Last goodbye to the Venezuelan and mother of a family, whose crime has caused a commotion in the Latino community of Georgia.
Delgado’s remains were cremated and then a mass was celebrated in his honor at the Nuestra Señora de las Américas Catholic Mission, an iconic Hispanic church in the town of Lilburn, Georgia.
In statements to Hispanic media after the Eucharist, Delgado’s husband said that state authorities had not given him any information about the crime and that he has learned of the few details that have come to light through the media.

“They don’t want to tell me anything”, Castro expressed while holding the urn with his wife’s ashes.
Delgado was last seen on April 16 in a Latino shopping center in the town of Chamblee, in northeast Atlanta, where surveillance cameras from a store captured her along with another unidentified woman, who authorities are looking for because she was one of the last people to be with her before disappearing.
