Body of missing dental student found burned

Tepoztlán, Morelos — The body of a university student who was reported missing Wednesday, has been found.

A dentistry student who was reported missing by her family in Cuernavaca Wednesday, was found a day later. The body of the young 20-year-old student was found burned.

On Thursday, news, images and data began to circulate around different media and social networks regarding the disappearance of Lesley Ayleen Alamilla Sosa, who studied dentistry at the private school Universidad Latinoamericana located north of Cuernavaca on the border with the municipality of Tepoztlán.

The news of the discovery of her body has generated a wave of indignation and condemnation against the government of Morelos and the Single Command.

According to information from local media, she was last seen with friends and colleagues after leaving the university. She had planned to move to her mother’s house, but never arrived. Family members reported her missing and began a search.

On Thursday afternoon, the discovery of a calcined body in the municipality of Tepoztlán in the area known as La Cañada del Mirador located in the town of San Juan Tlacotenco, was reported. There are no additional details as to her death or the discovery of her body.

Since August 2015, the Ministry of the Interior has decreed the Gender Violence Alert in eight municipalities, however, civil society organizations such as the Independent Human Rights Commission of Morelos, have denounced that neither state nor local authorities have complied with the federal recommendations.

There have been more than three dozen reports of femicide in the state already this year.
