A 16-year-old Mexican girl has allegedly murdered her best friend in a gruesome stabbing attack after she posted naked photos of the pair on her Facebook account.
Anel Baez, 16, was found dead with 65 stab wounds to her neck on March 19th after she invited her best friend, Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez — a girl who she also referred to as her ‘sister’ – to her home to attempt a reconciliation.
According to Mexican news website Notus, the two both lived in Guamúchil, western Mexico – had a fall out after Anel published revealing photos on her Facebook account.
Erandy arrived and asked her unsuspecting friend is she could use the toilet. Instead, she went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and allegedly stabbed Anel over and over again, leaving her in a pool of blood.
Erandy then fled the scene and tried to cover her tracks by grieving with mutual friends of the pair and attended Anel’s funeral a few days later. It was there that the police arrested her.
Earlier in the year Erandy took to Twitter to send threats to her once best friend.
“It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times,” she wrote on an account that has since been deleted.
Anel was also told she would be ‘lucky to survive until the end of the year’.
Her Facebook page – which is yet to be taken down – reveals a tragic look inside the lives of two young pals who would one day become victim and alleged murderer.
Since Anel’s brutal murder, the local high school that was attended by both Anel and Erandy has been hosting lectures and seminars aimed at preventing further similar tragedies, local media reports.
It is expected police will lay murder charges in the coming days. Under Mexican law, Erandy faces a maximum of seven years in prison if found guilty.
