CCTV footage captured the chilling moment a three year old girl was “carried away to be raped and murdered” after her mum sold her for drugs.
Luz Maida was horrifically sold in the middle of the night in return for £10 worth of crack cocaine.
The three-year-old’s mum, Aurelia Salinas, 42, made the disturbing exchange with her drug dealer boyfriend in Pedro Juan Caballero, Paraguay.
The chilling CCTV footage shows Salinas’ boyfriend carrying the little girl away in his arms in the early hours of the morning.
The video captured the Luz’s final moments before she was tragically raped and murdered.
Luz, who was last seen in the CCTV footage wearing a blue dress with Disney’s Frozen characters printed on it was betrayed by her mum for 30 pieces of crack cocaine.
The heart breaking clip shows the innocent girl trying to tear herself away from Salinas’ boyfriend as he fled from the home with her.
While the man treks down a dirty path with Luz slung over his shoulder, he can be seen slapping her with his free hand to stop her fidgeting.
Just over 24 hours after the shocking crimes were committed, the little girls body was discovered by horrified neighbours in an abandoned house.
Her corpse was found covered in a shirt and placed on top of a bed after the unnamed dealer had raped and murdered the pre-schooler.
Initial reports on the case suggest the three-year-old was suffocated.
According to local reports, enraged locals attempted to lynch Salinas as she was being arrested after allegedly confessing her involvement in her daughters murder to police.
Her boyfriend later confessed to the murder, local media has said.
Salinas initially told police that Luz had disappeared in her sleep but aver cops discovered the CCTV footage, she admitted to selling her for crack cocaine.
The 42-year-old has been arrested along with her boyfriend and another 17-year-old who is also believed to be involved.
Cops have allegedly said that Salinas was under the influence of drugs and seemed unbothered about her daughters whereabouts while they searched for her.
It has also been reported that more than 300 locals attended Luz’s funeral and a group of local neighbours later burned down the house where her corpse was discovered.
Investigators have claimed the family had a “history of tragedies”, after the mum-of-eight allegedly allowed her 12-year-old daughter to be sexually abused by a 30-year-old man.
Both cases are currently undergoing investigation.
