Who killed Julissa Ramirez and Nohemi Martinez? Lesbian couple from Texas BUTCHERED in Mexico
Julissa Ramirez and Nohemi Martinez, a young lesbian couple from Texas, were found dead inside trash bags by the side of a highway between the city of Ciudad Juarez and the town of El Porvenir, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, on January 17. According to reports, the bodies of the couple were found "tortured, shot, and dismembered" in garbage bags.
The couple lived in El Paso with their three children, two girls, and a boy, and had gotten married on July 28, 2021. "The names and ages of the children have not been released to protect their privacy, and it was not revealed if they were adopted or if they were either woman's biological children and were conceived using a donor. The authorities found the couple's dismembered bodies by the side of the road, and their relatives had to be called in to identify the butchered remains of their loved ones," reports The Sun.
As per El Diario, their ages ranged between 25 and 30 years. The Spanish newspaper reported, "A few days ago, on January 6, Nohemi Martinez had posted a text with a premonitory tone on her partner's wall, "It seems unbelievable, but whenever we are happy something happens that ruins everything." With at least nine victims during the first 17 days of January, on average, a woman has been murdered every 45 hours during 2022 in Ciudad Juárez and Valle de Juárez, according to data from the State Attorney General's Office.
On Monday, relatives of Ramirez and Martinez went to the Specialized Prosecutor's Office to identify the couple and claim the remains found in order to bury them. Soon after, people started sending their condolences on social media. A user said, "I never met you two or your family, but today, I looked at the wonderful pictures of your wonderful, loving lives, and I cried and prayed for you both, your children, family and friends!
