One year after her disappearance, the body believed to be that of an aspiring actress has been found in the water tank in apartment complex where she lived in Mexico City.

Carmen Yarira Noriega Esparza, 27, was last seen in February last year, and friends and family feared the worst, that she was kidnapped by human traffickers and sold as a sex slave.

However, the severely decayed body of Esparza was discovered in the tank after complaints about the drinking water tasting funny were lodged by residents in the complex.

Police officials in Mexico City now are suspect that the woman’s body may have been decaying in the water tank since she vanished.

Esparza, who had graduated as a psychologist and was an aspiring actress, was last seen leaving her gym in the Mexican capital in February last year.

Social media campaigns were established by family and friends in a bid to try and find her, volunteers took posted photographs of the woman, with hopes that someone would recognize her.

Javier Paz, who was a friend of Esparza said of the woman: ‘She was a talented and beautiful women who dreamed of being an actress. When she failed to turn up at the clinic where she worked, we all thought that she might have been kidnapped and sold off into the sex trafficking industry. But it seems that her body was back in her apartment block the whole time.”

Police have now turned their attention to  Esparza’s ex boyfriend, who is a  wealthy businessman and was believed to have been paying the rent for her apartment.

According to local news outlets, Esparza called it quits with the man after becoming involved with a wealthy lawyer, and vanished a week before she was supposed to move out the apartment.

The disturbing discovery of the Esparza’s body has stunned her family and friends, who are now demanding to know answers as to how her body could have gone undiscovered up until now.

Esparza’s slow decaying body was the cause of the strange taste the residents were complaining out.

A Law enforcement spokesman said:

“City officials were called to the tank and when they opened it up they found the body in a high state of putrefaction, the body has been taken to the Institute of Forensic Sciences where a postmortem will be carried out to determine the exact cause of death.

“However she has already been identified as the missing woman from implants that she had as a result of a plastic surgery operation.”

“We had a missing person report for her and had been looking into suggestions that she may have been taken by a gang involved in the sex slave business. It appears that was not the case.”
