The video was posted by Jerry Ulloa Zatarain on Facebook and at the start of it the woman insists that the man recording gets her name — Celia — so people know who she is as she stands on a street in Los Angeles to passionately present her words.
She was arrested at the scene of the killing of year-old Ana Maria Reyes on Wednesday in the Venustiano Carranza area of the capital. There, she underwent several failed marriages, from which she had four children. He had seen Barraza leave just before stumbling on his landlady's corpse.
Eye-witnesses had described a masculine-looking woman hanging around several murder scenes and, given the rarity of female serial killers, profilers were convinced the killer was a transvestite.
The killings began in Mexico City in the late s. Little Old Lady Killer handed years in a Mexican prison By Jo Tuckman - The Guardian April 2, A single mother who nursed ambitions to be a professional masked wrestler has been sentenced to years in jail for killing 16 elderly women in Mexico City.
Dubbed the Mataviejitas, or Little Old Lady Killer, Juana Barraza was arrested in January after she was seen hurrying from the house of her last victim, the only murder she has confessed to. Two months later, police began checking the fingerprints of bodies in the city's morgues in the apparent belief that Mataviejitas might have committed suicide.
She would also rob the victims after killing them, mostly for her own gain, but she would also keep some of their items as trophies. Since sentences imposed in Mexican courts are generally served concurrently, but the maximum sentence under Mexican law is 60 years, she will most likely serve the full sentence in prison.
She reportedly admitted to Wednesday's killing, but denied a murder spree in which at least 30 women may have died.
Juana Barraza, 50, said she had been motivated by a lingering resentment against her mother.
