Carried away to be raped and murdered…after being sold by her mother for £10 of crack cocaine: Tragic last moments of three-year-old girl who suffered the ultimate betrayal

  • Luz Maida, three, was sold to her mother’s drug dealer boyfriend for cocaine
  • Tragic CCTV footage shows her being carried away before she was murdered 

When three-year-old Luz Maida was woken up in the middle of the night by her mother and thrust into the arms of a man, she couldn’t understand what was happening.

The little girl did not know that her mother Aurelia Salinas, 42, had just sold her to her drug dealer boyfriend so that she could get her hands on £10 worth of crack cocaine.

Tragic CCTV footage shows Luz being carried away in the early hours of Friday morning in Pedro Juan Caballero, Paraguay, by her mother’s boyfriend before she was raped and murdered.

Just over 24 hours later, Luz’s small and bloodied body was found by horrified neighbours inside an abandoned house, their screams filling the air. 

Luz, who was often seen wearing a blue dress with Frozen characters on it, had been betrayed by her own mother – all for 30 pieces of crack cocaine.

Heartbreaking CCTV footage shows Luz trying to escape from the clutches of Salinas’ boyfriend as he carried her away from her family home.

As he picks his way down a broken-down track, the dealer carries Luz in one arm and appears to slap her with his free hand to stop her wriggling. 

The dealer, who has not been named, went on to rape and murder the three-year-old, who hadn’t yet started school. Initial reports suggest she was suffocated to death.

Her tiny corpse was discovered wrapped in a shirt on top of a bed in an abandoned house. 

Furious locals reportedly tried to lynch her Salinas as she was being arrested after allegedly confessing to police for her involvement in her daughter’s murder.  

Her boyfriend later confessed to the murder, according to local media. 

Salinas first told police that Luz had disappeared while she was sleeping, but admitted that she had sold her daughter for drugs after police discovered the CCTV footage.

Both Salinas and her boyfriend were arrested, along with a 17-year-old who is allegedly also linked to the crime.

According to police, Salinas was under the influence of drugs and seemed unconcerned while police searched for the girl.

More than 300 locals attended Luz’s funeral and some neighbours later burned down the house where her body had been found.

Investigators said the family had a ‘history of tragedies.’

Salinas has seven other children, including one 12-year-old girl she allegedly allowed to be sexually abused by a 30-year-old man.

Both cases are currently under investigation.
