The disappearance of Karla

After having no information about the woman, her relatives reported the disappearance to the police in both Peru and Spain. Karla lived in London for work, but had lived in Spain with her mother and had a Spanish passport. The attitude of their partner, Alfredo, seemed very suspicious to them from the beginning.

Karla lived with her mother in Spain until she met Alfredo, and they both decided to move to London. It was there that they planned the trip to Peru to meet the boy's family and visit the most emblematic places. All they knew was that he took a taxi to his mother-in-law's house.

Alfredo returned alone

She was supposed to return to London on September 23, but she did not and was not showing any signs of life. On October 1, he traveled to Chile where he bought a ticket to London. After a stopover in Brazil he arrived in England on October 4 and went to the apartment to get Karla's things.

The victim's family regrets that, despite the complaint, the European authorities did nothing to stop the suspect. "They have done nothing to stop him, ask him questions about where she is, where she stayed", they complain. It was Erik, Karla's brother, who contacted Alfredo.

In a telephone conversation, the girl's partner confessed to her brother that he had killed her and told him where the body was. Good day Peru revealed the audios in which Karla's killer confessed everything. "Just tell me where he is, please, so I can find his body," implores the brother.

In a ruined house, and after ten hours of diligence, they found Karla's lifeless body in a field. The body was buried in a blue bag. The confessed author of the crime is already in the hands of English authorities, waiting to be brought to justice.

The autopsy reveals that Karla died of mechanical asphyxiation, stabbed with some object. In addition, the investigation points out that the killer did not act alone, but this end is not yet confirmed. The main hypothesis is that he ended his life in a rampart and then buried the lifeless body.
