The relatives of the Cuban Claudia Montes Muñoz, who has disappeared since June 11 in the municipality of Martí, in the province of Matanzas, confirmed on social networks that her lifeless body was found this Saturday.
“My little sister, they took you from our side, from the side of your little girl who desperately misses you. I only ask God to keep you in her glory,” Laura Montes, sister of the deceased girl, wrote on Facebook.
Although neither the relatives nor the Cuban authorities have offered details after the discovery of the body, Laura Montes revealed that her sister was murdered, as she stated that “the unfortunate” who “stole her life is going to pay dearly.”
Meanwhile, her cousin, Jorge Montes, showed photos of the alleged murderer of the young mother of a four-year-old girl, and requested the death penalty for him.
The aunt of the deceased, named Gladys Pérez Compte, wrote on her social networks that “a very cold-blooded being” “violently” took the life of the young woman, whose funeral was held this Saturday in Matanzas.
A close friend of the Montes family, called Bania Madruga, said on her Facebook profile that the young woman’s alleged aggressor, who would have raped and murdered her, had a history of rape.
The 22-year-old girl left her house on the morning of June 11 with a young man to make an alleged purchase of cement and has not been seen since, several of her relatives reported to DIARIO DE CUBA last week.
“She went out on a bicycle and with her husband’s phone, because hers was in a workshop. She goes out with a young man named Humberto, he says they went out to buy cement,” said Laura Montes, sister of the deceased girl, who He complained about the performance of the Police in the investigation.
Claudia Montes Muñoz is not the only young woman who has disappeared in recent months in Cuba. It is still unknown what could have happened to Yeniset Rojas Pérez, who was last seen on March 18 in Ranchuelo, Villa Clara, when she was leaving her work. Relatives currently have no clue as to where she might be.
The independent platform Yo Sí Te Creo in Cuba asked to make the disappearance of Rojas Pérez go viral, given that according to statements given by her family, the police authorities have shown little interest in solving the case over the days.
The state press very rarely publishes cases of missing persons, even when on numerous occasions relatives resort to these media to divulge the events and the photo of the loved one.
