Step father strangles, skins 19-year-old girl for fear she would report to her mother he molested her

An evil man strangled and skinned his 19-year-old step daughter for fear she would report to her mother he molested her.

A step father who constantly abused and sexually molested a 19-year-old girl, Kassandra Bravo, went to the extreme by strangling her and skinning her for fear that she would report the abuse to her mother.

The incident which happened in Uruapan, Mexico, is seen as one of the most hideous crimes ver committed by a human being. According to, the body of the teenage student nurse was found lying beside a road after she had been killed and then skinned.

The girl, according to the site, was reported to have told friends in a Facebook post that her stepfather had sexually assaulted her and also accused him of murder, an accusation he vehemently denied.

But on  3rd December, 2014, Bravo disappered and her mother Angeles, 41, raised the alarm when she did not turn up at a babysitting job with family friends.

Police issued a missing person notice for the teenager and three days later, her body was discovered lying beside a road near the village of Las Cocinas, between Uruapan and Los Reyes.

A post-mortem revealed she had been strangled until she passed out and then skinned.

The area is notorious for violent attacks on women and detectives were initially sceptical that they would get any leads. But after interviewing a friend, they were told Kassandra had been planning to tell her mum that stepfather, Daniel Murrieta Sainz, 42, had been sexually abusing her since the age of 15.

Police believe her Facebook post must have been seen by friends, and are trying to find out why nobody raised the alarm.

The man, Daniel Murrieta Sainz, admitted murdering his stepdaughter but denies it was because he had sexually assaulted her.

A Police spokesman, Francis Zamora said:

"We brought him in for questioning and he admitted strangling her and dumping the body, but denied he had been abusing her or that he had skinned her.

He said he had been furious when he wanted to take her to her babysitting job, and she had not been ready.

After a row he had strangled her."
