A man has been charged with the murder of a young mother who was raped and strangled to death with her own trousers before being thrown into a field.
The body of Brisa Abril Formoso Sobrado, 19, was discovered by a group of children playing in Ranelagh in the province of Buenos Aires in Argentina on Sunday.
She had been reported missing by her mother just 24 hours earlier after she did not return home from an evening last Friday.
Brisa, the mother of a small child, had met Hugo Ivan Morales, 23, at a birthday party in the neighboring town of Guillermo Enrique Hudson.
The victim attended the event with her cousin, who told police Brisa was leaving around 6 p.m. 5.30 with Morales, whom she had never met before.
Mens politiet indledte en efterforskning, anklagede de lokale styrken for ikke at tage sagen alvorligt og brød ud i vrede, da hendes lig blev opdaget af en gruppe børn i en tilgroet mark, ifølge det lokale medie MinutoUno.
The tragic mother’s family also claimed they were shot with rubber bullets by police as they approached the scene to identify her body.

After the gruesome discovery, investigators immediately tracked down Morales from the neighboring town of Platanos, who was reportedly found with multiple scratches on his arm.
Police are said to believe they may have been caused by Brisa as she defended herself against the alleged attack.
Morales was unable to account for the wounds, the news media Infobae reported.
He had also reportedly washed his clothes from the night of the incident, but forensic scientists were able to detect more blood stains, MinutoUno reported.
Morales was arrested and charged with murder aggravated by sexual violence.
Police have conducted a thorough search of his home.
Brisa’s body is currently undergoing an autopsy, with preliminary results suggesting she was sexually assaulted and strangled to death with her own trousers while trying to fight her attacker.
Morales could face life in prison if convicted.
