A teenage girl was spotted entering a motel alone before her body was discovered in a water tank nearby, officials have revealed.
CCTV footage captured the moment Debanhi Escobar, 18, entered the Nueva Castilla Motel in Escobedo, Mexico, on the morning of 9 April.
Escobar had attended a party with two friends on 8 April, but was last seen on the morning of 9 April when a photo of her was taken by a rideshare driver. That was the last time she was seen alive.
The hunt for Escobar lasted almost two weeks, with the search extending to neighbouring states.
Sadly, last Thursday (21 April), her body was found inside a water tank that was no longer in use. A motel worker had reported a foul smell coming from the direction of the cistern, which soon led investigators to the scene.
Prosecutor Gustavo Guerrero addressed reporters the following day, stating that Escobar’s death was caused by a contusion to the skull. However, the mystery as to how she wound up inside the water tank remains.
