Translated by Fulano from an article in El Debate.
Guamúchil, Sinaloa.- Fate played a cruel game with the person called “Maria” or “Alondra” in the world of prostitution, when she met a cruel death she was perhaps not expecting. According to what she said in an interview she gave to EL DEBATE last November, 2014, she was always careful of the dangers of her work and was cautious about who she went with.
The young woman started to work as a prostitute at 18 years of age as she needed to maintain her two little children, one was three and one was five. In that November interview, María Luisa said that when she decided to be a prostitute, she did so without her parents being aware. “I left secretly at night to work, at first they did not say anything, and later they began to suspect.”
With her smiling face and dressed to head out for the streets to look for customers, on that occasion she said she really did not care to sell her body, however, the needs of her children, to buy medicine for one who was sick, forced her to be a prostitute.
She said in that chat that the first time she had to offer her services to a customer, she became nauseous and she had to overcome that to continue, and every day she worked she ended up exhausted, stressed and angry.
In her face could be seen the urge to live, she appeared happy, she would smile at times, at other times her gestures turned sad or hardened, as she recalled the events which had marked her life from the age of 18 to 21.
The young María, lived in a hotel in the city where she rented a room, her children did not live with her, her mother cared for them. Last night she did not return to sleep in her room, she would never return again.
Her body was found early Monday on the outskirts of the Guamúchil, Sinaloa. Her body was semi-naked and burned. María found death in a horrible manner.
Two children are left without their mother. Perhaps because of their young age they will not understand what happened. Perhaps they will not understand how their mother tried to give them everything they had.
