The fact became known after the Institute of Legal Medicine published a list with the names and document numbers of bodies that were found without being identified by relatives within the institution.

​Michael Leguizamón, 32 years old, had been missing since May 12 when he was confirmed the murder of Estefanía Franco Daraviña, who would be his romantic partner. According to the data that the authorities have managed to compile, it is presumed that the man had murdered the woman in the presence of one of his 10-year-old daughters.

The facts

The young Estefanía Franco Daraviña, only 30 years old, was murdered this weekend when she arrived from a supposed tribute for this time of year to which her partner had invited her. It all happened in the early morning of Sunday, May 12, 2024 in the La Alegría IV residential complex, located in the Prado Vegas neighborhood. The feminicide was allegedly perpetrated there at around 2:50 in the morning.

​Before the tragedy, on the night of Saturday, April 11, Estefanía and her partner went dancing and having a few drinks in a bar. The young woman had even shared photos of the party on social networks thanking the gesture. Then, it is only known that they left there and arrived at their place of residence where their daughters were sleeping. That’s when everything happened.

The neighbors of the complex were the ones who began to hear the cries for help coming from the living room of apartment 502. What they did not know is that Michael stabbed his partner there repeatedly. One of the girls, 10 years old, witnessed the heinous crime. His father, who had been with his mother for 11 years in a common law marriage, fled after the violent attack and his whereabouts are still unknown.

She, as best she could, went down the stairs to warn the security guards and neighbors what had happened. She told them that her mother was lying on the floor. She thus managed, in the midst of her innocence, to have the victim transferred in a taxi, seriously injured, to the Mario Gaitán Yanguas hospital, but, despite efforts, it was not possible to save her life. The woman arrived without vital signs.
