A father made a grim discovery when he dug through some disturbed earth at a home where his daughter lived.
The location was Barrio Camarenos in Santa Cruz. Judicial investigators said that the man found the buried body of his 17-year-old daughter, identified by the last name of Álvarez.
Agents said that the girl was living in a home near that of the father. She lived with her 18-year-old boyfriend.
She had not been seen since Sunday, so the father went to investigate Tuesday morning. That is when he made the discovery in the patio of the home, they said.
