Two arrested in Mexico after a pregnant woman was killed and an unborn child outside the womb


A Mexican woman who was eight months pregnant died after a couple cut her open in an attempt to steal their unborn child who ended up surviving the ordeal.

Authorities in the Mexican state of Veracruz said this week that Rosa Isela Castro Vázquez, 20, was found dead after going missing following a planned meeting with a woman she met online who promised to give her used baby clothes. The New York Post reported.

Vásquez’s husband alerted authorities when she did not return and the transcript of the online chats showed that he had planned to meet the woman at a pharmacy near their home in Veracruz.

Vasquez was captured on surveillance video standing outside the pharmacy and being escorted to a car.

On Saturday, Vasquez was found dead during a police raid on a ranch. His unborn child had been cut from his womb.

Also on Saturday, a woman referred to by authorities only as Verónica “N” aroused suspicion when she showed up at a Veracruz hospital with a newborn that she could not prove was hers.

Officials later arrested Verónica “N” along with her partner, Gonzalo “N”, and they believe that Verónica “N” stole the baby because she herself could not have children.

Verónica “N” and Gonzalo “N” appeared before a judge on Monday and face charges of kidnapping and femicide.

The boy is reportedly “safe and sound” and receiving medical treatment, CBS News reported.
