Mendoza has been in prison since May 2021.

The femicide for which Andrés Filomeno Mendoza Celis fell was not that of a random victim.

The 72-year-old man, a resident of a neighborhood in the municipality of Atizapannorth of Mexico City, knew well Reyna Gonzalez Amadora 34-year-old woman whom he occasionally helped in her business and with whom he even shared his family parties.

That is why on May 14, 2021, it seemed normal for González to tell her husband that she would go with Mendoza to the center of the city to restock products for her cell phone store.

But that day the woman disappeared.
