New Netflix True Crime On Mum's Crusade To Find Her Daughter's Killer Is Coming Next Month

New Netflix True Crime On Mum's Crusade To Find Her Daughter's Killer Is Coming Next Month

A new documentary is set to examine the case of Marisela Escobedo Ortiz, a mother whose tireless mission to bring her daughter's killer to justice ended with her own murder.

The Three Deaths of Marisela Escobedo, hitting Netflix on 14th October, tells the story of the mother from Mexico, who refused to let her daughter's death be just another statistic.

In 2008, Marisela's 16-year-old daughter Rubi Frayre went missing and one year later her remains were found burnt and dismembered in a trash bin in Ciudad Juárez, across from El Paso, Texas.

Her mother and father believed her boyfriend Sergio Rafael Barraza Bocanegra was responsible and after locating him, had him arrested. In court, Barraza confessed to the crime and told courts about the remains of Ruby, however, he was acquitted for lack of evidence and released.

In response, Marisela held a number of defiant protests against the Chihuahua state authorities for the acquittal and the verdict which brought international attention to the case.

A circuit court soon overturned the acquittal and Barraza was sentenced for murder while he remained a fugitive.

On the evening of 16 December 2010, Marisela Escobedo Ortiz was holding a peaceful vigil for her daughter and other victims of femicide outside the Chihuahua State Governor's Office when a number of masked men arrived in a car.

Reports say one of the men spoke to Marisela who then tried to escape before she was shot in the head. The mother survived the initial shot but later died in hospital due to her injuries.

But the tragedy didn't stop there for the Escobedo family. Two days after, a brother-in-law of the family's body was found dumped on the street after his business was torched in another revenge killing.

Netflix says of the upcoming documentary: "This documentary examines a mother's tireless crusade to jail her daughter's murderer after Mexico's justice system failed to do so."

This looks set to be a heartbreaking and gripping watch.

The Three Deaths of Marisela Escobedo airs on Netflix from Wednesday 14th October.
