Hundreds of women took to Mexico City’s streets to condemn a young woman’s grisly murder and mutilation, spray “we won’t be silenced” graffiti on the National Palace of the city, and face riot police.
Ingrid Escamilla, of Mexico City, last weekend’s killing comes as Mexico is dealing with a spike in gender-related assaults. Her arrested boyfriend allegedly confessed to killing the 25-year-old with a knife, mutilating her body and flushing part of her body into the sewer.
