A 16-year-old girl in Mexico stabbed her “best friend” to death for posting a nude picture of them together, reports Spanish-language news site Notus.com.
The Mirror has an English translation of the story, which says 16-year-old Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez became angry with Anel Baez after the picture appeared on Facebook.
Police in Guamúchil, Sinaloa, about 500 miles south of Arizona, say Gutierrez “became furious” and threatened to kill her friend multiple times but Baez never took the threats seriously.
Notus has screengrabs of Gutierrez’s tweets, which have since been deleted from the social media site.
“It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times,” Gutierrez wrote on Twitter.
Baez invited her alleged killer over to her house on March 19 to “patch things up” between them and Gutierrez said she need to use the restroom. Instead of going to the bathroom, police say, she went to the kitchen and got a large knife and stabbed Baez 65 times in the back.
Police say Gutierrez tried to conceal her involvement in the death by openly grieving for her friend and attending Baez’s funeral, where she was arrested.
If convicted of murder, Gutierrez, a minor, can only serve a maximum of 7 years in prison. In other words, she will likely be released by the time she is 23.
That’s plenty of time to live a long, full life like the one her friend will never have.
