The young Debanhi Escobar died of asphyxiation due to suffocation, in the form of airway obstruction, according to the first results of the third expert opinion carried out after the exhumation of the body, reported Felipe Takashi, head of the Institute of Forensic Sciences of Mexico City.
When Debanhi was found, she had three to five days of cadaveric evolution.
It was reported that no injury or finding supporting sexual violence was found and suffocation due to submersion was ruled out.
“There are sufficient elements to establish that the cause of death was due to suffocation, the second conclusion is that the post-mortem interval is three to five days from the location of the victim, no evidence was found that could sustain sexual violence, suffocation by submersion is completely ruled out,” the report reads.
When presenting the “Zero Impunity” report on July 14 at the morning conference of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the Undersecretary of Security, Ricardo Mejía Berdeja, indicated that authorities and specialists would have a meeting to share studies and unify the report.
