On November 9, a local fisherman found the faceless head of a woman on a beach located near Villafuerte’s residence. Soon, an arm and a torso without its organs were also found, as well as a single finger wearing a silver ring. Authorities were able to determine that the body parts belonged to Blanca after her family identified the ring that was found.

As reported by the outlet, scraps of Blanca's blood had also been found throughout Villafuerte's apartment. He had also reportedly shared TikTok videos of her organs, days after she disappeared. On November 17, Villafuerte was arrested by police on the charge of femicide, human trafficking, and organ trafficking. However, he has denied his involvement in the crime as of now. Authorities suspect that Villafuerte did not act alone as the victim's face was removed by someone experienced with surgical instruments.

My aunt was a kind, warm person, full of light, intelligent, dedicated, loving and that is how she should be remembered. We believe in Peruvian laws and we fully trust the authorities to make it happen as they have done an impeccable job so far. It’s time to raise your voice and ask for #JusticiaParaBlanca.”
