Russian MMA Fighter Found Dead In Reported Food Poisoning Pixabay

A young woman who was last seen taking a taxi on a night out was found dead on a highway in Mexico.

The victim, identified as 25-year-old Ariadna Fernanda López Díaz, disappeared in the area of La Condesa in Mexico City on Oct. 30. She was last seen picking up a taxi ride back home after spending an evening at a bar with her friends, the Mirror reported.

However, when Ariadna never arrived back at her home, her concerned loved ones reported her as missing and posted her images on social media to help the public in identifying her.

A day after her family reported her missing, a group of cyclists came across a dead body on the La Pera-Cuautla highway near the town of Santiago Tepetlapa in Morelos State, 53 miles south of the Mexican capital, Yahoo News reported.

The cyclists reported the discovery to the police. One of them took a photograph of the victim's tattoo and posted the images on social media to help concerned loved ones identify the victim.

The authorities arrived on the scene and took the young woman’s corpse to a hospital to conduct an autopsy.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, the local authorities confirmed that the body was indeed Ariadna.

Meanwhile, Ariadna's friends and relatives are demanding justice for the young woman’s death. They vowed to never stop their efforts until her killer is located and put behind bars.

“Fer [short for Fernanda] was not an orphan, she had a family who loves her and friends who will fight until justice is delivered. May her soul rest in peace,” the victim’s friend Clau Lo said.

She also added that Ariadna's mother had recently passed away from cancer.

After conducting the autopsy, the Morelos State Attorney General's Office handed over the victim’s body to her family on Nov. 3 for burial.

“Thanks to all the friends of Ariadna López for your condolences, I hope you do not forget how she was and that she remains in your thoughts," Yair Rodríguez, the victim’s nephew said.

An investigation into the death is ongoing. The police officers are yet to make any arrests in connection with the incident.
