Her body was found in a canal in Santa Cruz Del Valle on Monday. The Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office has launched an investigation into her death.

During a press conference on Thursday, Jalisco Attorney General Octavio Solís did not delve into specific details regarding Murrieta's murder. He said investigators are going over several leads and surveillance footage recovered in hopes of finding her killer.

Murrieta’s cause of death was “direct strangulation suffocation,” according to another official in the attorney general’s office.

Murrieta’s body was flown to her hometown for her funeral service. She lived in Guadalajara for three years and had over 61,000 Instagram followers. 

In a statement, her family describes her as a “unique, outgoing, and kind hearted person.” “More than anyone, we would have liked to share a different or less painful ending for our loved ones,” the family wrote.
