He beat her to a pulp. A court freed him. Now she is dead

FORMER Amazon executive's wife Abril Pérez Sagaón was assassinated last week but photos show she was beaten to a pulp shortly before her murder, according to the couple's daughter.

Abril's daughter, Ana Cecilia, shared horrific photos of the assault in which she claims her father, Juan Carlos Garcia, pommeled Abril with a baseball bat, InfoBae reported.

The gruesome images show a blood-soaked Perez with her face swollen, holding back her hair to reveal cuts on her face.

"These images I shared hurt me, they remind me of the injustice experienced by the woman I loved most," Cecilia wrote on Monday on Twitter.

"I hesitated to share them, I know that nobody wants to see that, but after all they are images that represent what is lived day by day in this country by thousands of women."

 

Abril was allegedly asleep when Garcia whipped out the baseball bat in January and attempted to kill her, El Pais reported.

"Imagine waking up in the early morning by the screams of your mother screaming for her life," Cecilia wrote on Twitter.

"Imagine getting up to see the beautiful face of your bloody mother thanks to the criminal you once called "dad'."

The ex-CEO of Amazon Mexico was taken into custody for the alleged assault, but released last month when a judge downgraded the charge to domestic violence, according to reports.

Abril - who filed for divorce from her husband - had been in Mexico City for a court hearing on November 25 when she was fatally shot by a motorcyclist, El Pais reported.

No arrests have been made in the case, but police have identified the estranged husband as a suspect.

"He has enough money to hire a hitman," a relative told El Pais.

"We have no doubt that it was him."

García - who left his gig at Amazon Mexico in 2017 - is considered by authorities to be the primary suspect in the case, the outlet reported.
