A Mexican woman who traveled more than 3,000 miles to Peru for a date was killed and dismembered by her online boyfriend.

The victim, Blanca Arellano, a 51-year-Mexican woman, took a flight from Mexico City to Lima, Peru, on Oct. 31, and traveled more than 3,000 miles to meet her online boyfriend Juan Pablo Jesús Villafuerte, a 37-year-old Peruvian. Arellano met Villafuerte on a gaming app online. They both had been in an online relationship for several months before she left for Peru, VICE reported.

Her family last heard from her on Nov. 7 from the beach city of Huacho, where Villafuerte lived. On Nov. 7, she talked to her niece Karla Arellano and said that her relationship with Villafuerte was going well and that she was in love with him.

However, after a few days, when there was no word from Arellano, her niece Karla was the first to suspect something was wrong. She then reached out to Villafuerte, the only person Arellano knew in Peru.

Since there was no word from Arellano, Karla called for help on Twitter.

“I never thought I would be in this situation, but today I’m asking for your support to spread this post and find one of the most loved and important people in my life. My aunt Blanca Olivia Arellano Gutiérrez disappeared on Monday, Nov. 7 in Peru. We fear for her life,” she wrote on Twitter.

Along with the tweet, she also shared a screengrab of her initial conversation with Villafuerte, where she asked him if he could ask her aunt to call. However, Villafuerte said that he had stopped talking to her several days back. He told Karla that “she decided to leave because I couldn’t offer the life she wanted, got bored of me, and left to find a plane ticket back to Mexico.”

“I hope she is doing well, but my role here is over. I don’t know anything else from here and I’m saying this with sadness. I'm sure her phone is not working or she’s out of battery. Take care and I hope she gets safely back home,” said Villafuerte in his last message.

Days later, on Nov. 10, the officers in Huacho found a severed finger on the beach of Huacho with the fingertips removed and a silver ring on it. A day later, a faceless head and then an arm washed up on the shore. The next day, a torso without any organs inside appeared on the same beach. Eventually, the officers identified that the body belongs to Arellano by the ring on the finger that was recovered.

Further investigation revealed that Villafuerte, a medical school student, had posted TikTok videos of human organs for days after Arellano’s disappearance.

Investigators also found traces of blood all over his apartment. On Nov. 17, Peruvian authorities arrested Villafuerte as the main suspect in Arellano’s murder and also charged him with charges related to human organ trafficking.
