Lesbian couple’s three young kids now orphans as bodies ‘found on side of road’
January 19, 2022
A lesbian couple with three kids has been found dead and dismembered inside rubbish bags by the side of the road.
Tragically, the three little children are now orphans following the horrific ordeal.
The victims, who have been named as Julissa Ramirez and Nohemi Medina Martinez, both in their late 20s, were found in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, between the city of Ciudad Juarez and the town of El Porvenir, on Monday, January 17.
The pair, who lived in the city of El Paso, just across the border in the US state of Texas, got married in July last year and had three children together – two girls and a boy.
It has not yet been revealed whether the three kids were adopted or if they were either woman’s biological children conceived through the use of a sperm donor.
Police found the couple's dismembered bodies in the black bags by the side of the road and their relatives had to be called in to identify the butchered remains of their loved ones.

The Chihuahua State Attorney General's Office has opened an investigation into the brutal killings but so far has not announced any arrests.
The authorities are currently trying to determine the couple's whereabouts and actions in the hours leading up to their deaths and it is still unclear if they have any suspects.
Several LGBTQ+ communities have reportedly called for justice over the double homicide, and the governor of Chihuahua, Maru Campos, has vowed that the case will not go unpunished.
Meanwhile, this is the second pair of women found dumped in rubbish bags near Ciudad Juarez on Monday.
One woman was found dead at the scene, while another was found alive and crying.
According to Mexican officials, however, she later died.
