Woman Allegedly Killed for Her Organs after Online Courtship
On November 7, the woman in love told her niece Karla Arellano that the romance in person was going well, but then stopped communicating with the family.
“I never thought I would be in this situation, but today I ask for your support to spread this post and find one of the dearest and important people in my life,” Karla tweeted on November 12.
“My aunt Blanca Olivia Arellano Gutiérrez disappeared on Monday, November 7 in Peru. We fear for her life,” she added.
Karla said she was alarmed when she approached Villafuerte, who claimed that Bianca would return to Mexico after the couple split.
“I decided to communicate with Juan P since he was the only contact she had in that country and that’s where our fear was triggered,” she wrote.
Villafuerte reportedly claimed that Bianca decided to take a flight home after telling her that she “couldn’t offer her the life she wanted.”
On November 10, Peruvian authorities discovered a severed finger with a silver ring still attached washed up on a local beach.
In the following days, a faceless head, arm, and torso with all internal organs apparently intentionally removed also washed ashore.
The devastated family matched the ring to their missing loved one, according to The Independent.
An arrest warrant was issued on November 17 for Villafuerte, who was arrested on human organ trafficking charges, the news outlet reported, citing Latin Noticias.
It later emerged that shortly after Blanca’s disappearance, the suspect had begun posting videos on TikTok that allegedly showed him dissecting body parts, including a pancreas and a brain, according to El Popular.
During a search of Villafuerte’s home, police found evidence of blood in his bathroom, laundry room, and on his mattress, The Independent reported, citing El País.
“We have no words to express what we are experiencing,” Karle tweeted on Wednesday. “My aunt was a kind, warm, bright, intelligent, dedicated, affectionate person and she should be remembered that way.”
She added: “We believe in Peruvian laws and we fully trust the authorities to make this happen, as they have done an impeccable job so far. It is time to raise our voices and ask for #JusticiaParaBlanca”.
