“The 2000s began in what was then the Federal District with a series of murders that put the Metropolitan Police at risk: old women were strangled in their own homes. The profile of the victims causes unprecedented public outrage and media attention. The Attorney General’s office has poured all its resources and efforts into capturing the first serial killer in Mexican history. Witnesses describe him as a tall, burly and strong man who poses as a nurse to gain the trust of his victims. After more than forty homicides, several failed arrests and many contradictions, a woman is arrested in broad daylight in January 2006 on the run from the crime scene. Her name is Juana Barraza, known in wrestling as “La Dama del Silencio” and dubbed in the media as “The Little Old Ladykiller”. A nickname that is already part of Mexico’s black history and its unparalleled popular culture.”
