DEATH: July 29, 2008
Marisol, 12, was strangled to death by her father inside the apartment she shared with her mother and siblings. Her mother took Marisol’s sister to the doctor and when she returned the door was ajar.
Upon entering the apartment she found 12 year old Marisol, on the floor with a plastic bag over her head, her shirt pulled up and her pants down her thighs.
An autopsy showed that she had been strangled before the bag was places over her head and tied in a knot. She also suffered bruises on her head and both legs as well as abrasions to her neck. Even though she was found with her clothes in disarray the medical examiner said there was no evidence of sexual assault.
Her father, Felipe Antonio Caceres, was charged with second degree murder in Marisol’s death. There has never been a clear motive given by him as to why he murdered his daughter.
