Missing woman found dismembered, partially cooked in family kitchen

Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero — A woman who has been missing since January 13 has been found deceased in the home of her mother-in-law.

The 28-year-old woman identified as Magdalena Aguilar Romero went missing the evening of January 13 when her mother, who had been talking with her on her cell phone, said she suddenly stopped answering.

Magdalena’s friends and family began their own search and also went to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to demand authorities investigate the home and premises of her former partner.

Guerrero authorities arrived at the home of her former husband nine days after she went missing to discover her dismembered body in their kitchen.

When they entered the home they found a pot cooking on the stove with human remains as well as a plastic bag on the floor that contained body parts. The remainder of her half-frozen body was discovered inside the refrigerator.

An arrest warrant for the mother-in-law Silvia Arciniega and the ex-husband identified as César “N” was issued. Although Silvia has been arrested, her son César remains at large.

Through a statement, the Prosecutor’s Office of Guerrero said Silvia Arciniega, mother-in-law of the murdered woman, was arrested as a suspect in the participation of her death.

The medical examiner has determined the cause of death was asphyxia due to hanging before the body was dismembered. Aguilar Romero was a nutritionist and mother to two young children.
