In what will come across as a really shocking development, a man has killed his own wife in Ecuardor.
The Ecuadorian police are now hunting for the man who allegedly bludgeoned his wife to death before super-gluing her skill back together to hide the injuries and make it look like an accident.
Luis Hermida claimed his partner Lisbeth Baquerizo, 30, had fallen down the stairs and died after she was found on the floor of their home in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador on 21 December.
Lisbeth’s father Mario Baquerizo was contacted by the father of the suspect who reportedly said: ‘You have to come quickly. Lisbeth is dead.’
Mario and his wife Kathy Munoz rushed to their daughter’s house only to find a funeral home had been contacted and a coffin was already there.
Luis’s family reportedly asked the heartbroken parents not to contact the police so the funeral could be organised for the next day and they insisted they would take care of the service.
Although finding the hastiness of the funeral arrangements off, the grief-stricken parents agreed because they did not initially suspect Luis as he had been in a relationship with their daughter for 12 years, including one year of marriage.
However, the Lisbeth’s mother Kathy became suspicious when she noticed an injury on Luis’s eye at the wake which he claimed occurred during a mugging attempt.
Later, Kathy was approached by her daughter’s friend who claimed Lisbeth had been insulted and physically abused by Luis, but did not want to tell her family.
