Such tragedy has shocked the population of the municipality of Puerto Plata and the neighborhood where it happened.
“My God, what is happening in our society, that every day it gets worse and worse, as we see daily femicide and suicide, being a mother it hurts me very much to see these things, and I am asking God for mercy…, “- said Mrs. Ruth Taveras, a resident of the place.
