The case of Paulette Gebara, a four-year-old girl who disappeared on March 22, 2010 from her own bed and was found in the same place nine days later, represents one of the most remembered mistakes made by the Mexican authorities. And after the recent disappearances and deaths of women, such as Debanhi Escobar, the case that caused consternation in that country is remembered.
The event occurred in Huixquilucan, and has its own series on Netflix. Due to Paulette’s death, there were no arrests and everything was left as an “accident”, according to the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Mexico, headed by Alberto Bazbaz, who resigned a few days after losing “credibility and trust” of the people.
The case of the young woman from Nuevo León and this one, 12 years old, are similar in the appearance of the corpses, since they were “found by the authorities” in the same places where they carried out several checks.
Debanhi Escobar decided to fall into a cistern on purpose.
Yolanda Martinez decided to commit suicide and throw herself on a piece of land.
Paulette Gebara decided to appear overnight on the mattress of her lifeless bed.

Keys to understand the disappearance of Paulette Gebara
The disappearance of the little girl would have caused the divorce of Mauricio Gebara and Lisette Farah, who separated shortly after and custody of their first daughter remained with the woman.
Gebara declared to the Milenio newspaper that he knew where they were going to find the girl. However, she demanded guarantees to be able to give the information that she claimed to have. On the other hand, Farah began to point out to her husband that he was responsible for what happened to the girl.

The case took on such relevance that it reached the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Mexico and Alberto Bazbaz took up the case. Similarly, they never found a culprit and did not clarify what happened.
The only clarification was that he died of suffocation due to obstruction of his airways and strong pressure on his trunk, according to autopsy reports, according to the BBC.
Farah demanded that the judicial file of the investigation be handed over to him, since he questioned the opinion given by the prosecutor’s office, in which they declared his death accidental.
The family, who was known among business circles in the State of Mexico, were even friends of Enrique Peña Nieto, who at the time was the governor of the state, according to journalist Alberto Nájar.
Prosecutor Bazbaz announced that, during “ministerial proceedings”, the girl was found “in Paulette’s own room, at the foot of her bed, between the mattress and the structure of the furniture that supports it, and covered by the sheet and quilt Of the same”. Her cause of death was “mechanical suffocation from suffocation.”
Bazbaz maintained at the time that the girl was “hidden and deprived of her life.” She said that she would search for answers to “events that are absolutely incomprehensible.”
However, on May 21, the same prosecutor described everything as an “accident” after completing the investigations and acknowledged that the process had “deficiencies in not having fully reviewed the bed” and resigned from his position on May 25. .
The journalist and current senator Lilly Téllez, who did one of the television interviews in 2010, assured on April 8 of that year that the girl “was not” where the authorities said she appeared. (I)
After repeatedly denouncing that Paulette’s body was not in her bed, I received a threat to drop the case and I remain vulnerable to that threat.
Without the necessary conditions to file a complaint with the authorities, this is another example of the lack of rule of law
