A 22-year-old American girl was found dead last week in an Illinois forest. The authorities are actively seeking information.
What happened to Vanessa Ceja Ramirez? This 22-year-old American, an education aid in Illinois, was found dead last Wednesday in a forest where she had gone for a walk with her mother. The autopsy revealed that she had been strangled to death. The girl was allegedly attacked on Monday at the Midlothian Meadows Forest Preserve. She was walking with her mother and a friend when she decided to turn around, on her own, to the car, reports the “Chicago Sun-Times“. She was then reported as missing by her two relatives.
Sniffer dogs were quickly called in to try to find her but it was not until last Wednesday that she was found dead. “The only information we have is that Vanessa was strangled. She was tortured. It’s shocking, no one should be tortured, beaten or burned, ”said a member of the community, quoted by ABC7, without however giving more details on his remarks. In order to obtain information on the murder of the young woman, a reward of 2000 dollars was initially promised. This amount doubled on Sunday.
“She was a person who had our future in her hands, we believed in her as in all our children here. She was a lovely and humble kid, she smiled and was shy. He was a good person. She did nothing to deserve that, ”commented her uncle Alejandro Villegas to ABC7.
