Paloma Angélica Ledezma
Disappeared in 2002, when she was 16 years of age, her body was found 28 days later. She left home at 3:15 p.m. for her computer class and did not return. When she was found her garment was out of place – “the waistband was around her left leg; the left leg was on her right leg; and its right leg was around her waist”
Afailure to investigate this case is part of a general pattern of discrimination and violence against women and girls in the state of Chihuahua in general and in Ciudad Juárez in particular... discriminatory treatment on gender grounds in the authorities’ actions... hostile formalities pointing toward the guilt of the family itself or on the “moral behavior” of the girl... the case has not been investigated as required in situations taking place against a backdrop of gender violence, and they claim that violence against women entails the violation of a series of human rights. Also, underclothes were switched among the bodies... found Red shorts on the remains of Paloma Escobar that didn't belong to her and the disappearance of a change of clothes from the backpack of Norma Leticia Luna Holguín.
