They took the life of the girl in the cyan-colored dress, and let her body rot for days. They stripped her innocence away. When questioned why they had done it, the man responded with words that showed no sign of remorse. His voice did not break when admitting the heinous act. When she confessed, she did it without stuttering. Was his/her/their mind right?

They toyed with her body but she was no baggage. It is sad and ironic that she should've been the one playing with toys and dolls right now. Reality is another one. She was hidden by them in the luggage as if she had been a belonging, like a sweater or a pair of jeans. That is where and how she was found. Unfortunately, her life had been cut days short before being found.

The news, the police, and the public will never know the real story of why they both committed this crime against such a tender human being. Truth be told, if they really committed this act, their mind was nowhere near of being right.

(Based on an event that happened this week at the border crossing between San Diego, Ca. and Tijuana B.C., Mex.)
