On the night of October 16, Ángela del Pilar Ferro Gaitán, 30, was the victim of a massive attack on the part of his sentimental partner, Miguel Camilo Parra, in his own home, an apartment located in the El Redil neighborhood of the town of Usaquén, in Bogotá.
In a fit of jealousy, according to family and friends, Parra, who has a collection of axes, he located one of them and, in an unforgiving manner, attacked his partner in the body, face and head. “It was her 12-year-old son who called us for help and was completely horrified,” said Jonathan Tuta, a friend of the attacked woman.
After he nearly murdered her, authorities confirmed that the man fled while Angela was dying. Now, she is hospitalized in the Cardio Infantil clinic fighting for her life.
The victim’s sister said that she had already told him about their relationship problems and that she was complaining about how jealous and possessive Parra was in the relationship.
“He also has six axes in the house and he took one of them, the smallest, to give my sister seven blows,” said Jeisson Estiven Díaz, another member of the young woman’s family.
The young woman’s family asks the authorities to find the author of what they consider as soon as possible a clear attempt at femicide.
The Bogotá Women’s Secretariat immediately assigned a psychosocial care team to accompany the victim psychologically and offer her legal representation.

The complaint has already been filed by Angela’s family and the entity is already in contact with them and at their full disposal.
“From the District Secretariat for Women we call on society to denature violence against women and seek our guidance and free support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through the Purple Line 018000 112 137” said the woman’s secretary, Diana Rodríguez Franco.
