Mom of American woman, 23, who was 'tortured and had her teeth pulled out' in Mexico wants killers to face justice

THE MOTHER of the victim of a horrific crime has spoken out, demanding justice for her child who was killed and tortured in Mexico.

Lisbeth Flores, 23-year-old mother-of-three was found dead on August 11 after she had traveled from Brownsville, Texas, to Matamoros Mexico on August 9 to visit her boyfriend.


Flores had been beaten to death with a rock – after her teeth were ripped out and part of her scalp was cut off.

“I feel very sad for what they did to my daughter. How they left her is what pains me. The pain that my daughter went through there at that time is what pains me,” Flores’ mother María Rubio told Telemundo.

Rubio had filed a missing persons report on August 10 when her daughter did not return home the night she left, despite telling her mother that she would.

Although no suspects or motives have been listed as of yet, Matamoros has seen a spike in crime thanks to local cartel groups, such as the so-called Gang from Hell and the Northeast Cartel.

Flores’ body was found in a field near a construction site, according to DailyMail.com. Leaked photos of the crime scene show the victim’s body laying face-up, wearing a bra, pants, and shoes. 



“I feel very sad for what they did to my daughter. How they left her is what pains me. The pain that my daughter went through there at that time is what pains me,” Rubio said of the gruesome murder.

According to Juan Carlos Cué Vega, who works in the Brownsville Mexican Consul, the Mexican government offered to help return the body to the US but a local Texan funeral home stepped in to provide assistance instead. 

The FBI confirmed to DailyMail.com that they are taking part in an investigation with local law enforcement to find the sick killer – or killers.

“She was young, she had many things ahead of her and more because she had two children,” Rubio said.

“I want those who did that to my daughter, each one who participated in her death, I want them to pay.”
