Former lead singer of 50 caliber and regional Mexican composer wrote the theme I will find you, to raise their voices and accompany families who suffer the pain of having lost a loved one. For his part, now Alicia Villarreal regretted the wave of femicides in her land, Monterrey, Nuevo León, where she lives next to her husband Cruz Martínez and their children. Without pronouncing forcefully but warning about the dangers, the singer said so:

I’ll find out there how I’m moving forwardbut I really haven’t been to Monterrey much, but It is quite unfortunate, it is one of the things that most worries us That’s why I’m looking out for my children, ”said the interpreter of The mare was too big for you in a meeting with the media.

Alicia highlighted the importance of good family communication and pointed out that she herself tries to keep an eye on the activities of Melanie Aidée, 26; Cruz Angelo, 16, and Estéfano, 15.

Well, my daughter is older, more aware, she is more carefulbut the boys are still small, it can be easy for them to walk in the street and be late, whatever” explained the call “spoiled blonde”.

Alicia considered that a family attachment could reduce the risks of young people falling prey to crime or the target of a disappearance, as has happened to thousands of women in today’s Mexico.

I believe that sometimes we do not know our children. I try, at a loss, once a week to sit in the dining room, to have a meal, a dinner, a breakfast, all together. From ‘How are you doing, how are you, son, how have you been feeling, how are the tasks going, or whatever, the parties’, it is important that although we work, we are aware of our children, “said the singer of You take advantage.

Gender violence experienced by girls and women in the country must be recognized as a priority on the national agenda, since this generates the most detestable expression such as femicides and also disappearances, ”said the autonomous body in a position.

The CNDH ruled on the alleged femicide of Debanhi, whose body was found last Thursday in a cistern at the Nueva Castilla motel. Debanhi had disappeared on April 9 after getting out of a taxi in which the driver allegedly harassed her.

The death of Debanhi has raised national and international outrage due to the image of her abandoned on the highway that went viral and due to the alleged failures of the Nuevo León Prosecutor’s Office, which first investigated the case as an accident and this Sunday rectified it in its investigation as femicide.
