Doctor Bernardo Howard told the newspaper The Herald that apparently, the woman was abandoned by her husband months ago and was taken into a foster home. “Yesterday (this Friday) the woman learned that they had separated her from the EPS and the foster home announced that they were not going to attend to her any more and they removed her from the place,” he said.
In Puerto Colombia, some people said that they had seen her at night walking as if disoriented.
