Emmanuel Delani Valdez Bocanegra, 26, has been accused of murdering a woman he met on popular dating app Tinder. Local reports state he dissolved her body in acid because she refused to have sex with him.
The suspect was interrogated by police when friends and family of Francia Ruth Ibarra, 26, reported her missing in Leon, central Mexico. Officers had learned the pair had met several times over the past few months leading up to her disappearance on Dec. 3.
Close colleagues of the victim also confirmed that Ibarra had been dating Bocanegra, a former medical student of the same institution based on evidence left on her Facebook account.
Attorney General Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre took to Twitter confirm Ibarra’s body had been found. “Gruesome remains of human bones were found in garbage bags placed on the balcony of his apartment beside hydrochloric acid and canisters of caustic soda. Six kilos of human flesh had been discovered from the bones were DNA matches with the victim, ” said Aguirre.
Ibarra’s clothes were later found stored in a bag with Bocanegra’s Leon apartment. Central Mexico Police tracked Boncanegra to Mexico City where he was arrested.
His sentencing has not yet been released.
