Beauty Contestant
    (1940-January 11, 1968)
    Born in Guatemala
    Miss Guatemala (1958)
    Murdered at 27 near Escuintla, Guatemala
    Nicknamed 'The Little Girl of Guatemala'
    Standing just under 5'3, she was extremely short for a beauty queen.
    She failed to enter the semi-finals at Miss Universe 1959.
    Her romance with Leonardo Castillo Johnson, commander of left-wing activist group Guatemalan Party of Labor (PGT), may have cost her life.
    When her death became a cause celebre, many killings occurred in retaliation between the PGT and the military regime in power.
    She believed in equality for all Guatemalans.
    While studying architecture, she was jailed on a trumped up driving offense.
    Soon after her release, a paramilitary death squad captured her (December 1967).
    A few weeks later, her nude corpse was found near a bridge, with evidence of having been tortured and gang raped.
    Her university's School of Architecture named a square in her honor.
    She paid the ultimate price for her beliefs.
