The victim was identified as Elizabeth Muniz Tamez, aka "The Red Head," who had been charged in 2009 with belonging to a gang of kidnappers, the Public Safety Office of Nuevo Leon state, where Monterrey is located, said in a statement. Her hair had been dyed blond when the body was found.
Muniz Tamez escaped from custody Monday, when a group of armed assailants snatched her from a prison vehicle taking her for medical treatment.
