The Attorney General of Mexico City, Rodolfo Ríos Garza, reported that the five bodies found Friday night in a residence in the area of Narvarte, among them photojournalist Rubén Espinosa, were tortured and received the coup de grace.

"According to the expert reports, the bodies found in the different rooms of the department presented, each one, a wound in the head produced by 9 mm shot, as well as abrasions in various parts of the body allegedly caused by wrangling prior to their submission," he said.

The first investigations are centered on the possibilities of murder and theft. However, other lines of investigation remain open.

Ríos Garza pointed out that the killed women, of 18, 29, 32 and 40 years of age, and whose identities have not been made public, brought into consideration the crimes of feminicide.

"The first victim, an 18-year-old, is a makeup artist from Mexicali, Baja California. The 32-year-old was a cultural promoter from Chiapas, and the 40-year-old woman was identified as the housekeeper, from the State of Mexico. The last victim, the 29-year-old, and whose line of work has not been determined, is known to be from Colombia," he said.

In the case of 31-year-old Rubén Manuel Espinosa Becerril, a collaborator of the Cuartoscuro photo agency, he was identified by his family, who reported that he came to Mexico City two months ago.
