What is The Lady of Silence: The Mataviejitas Murders?
The synopsis for the documentary has been sourced from Netflix:
“The decade of the 2000s began in the then Federal District, with a series of murders that put the capital’s police in jeopardy: old women strangled in their own homes. The profile of the victims provokes social indignation and media attention never seen before. The Attorney General’s Office poured all its resources and efforts into capturing the first serial killer in the history of Mexico. Witnesses define him as a tall, robust, and strong person who pretends to be a nurse to gain the trust of his victims. After more than forty homicides, several failed arrests, and multiple contradictions, a woman is arrested in January 2006 in broad daylight, while fleeing the scene of the crime. Her name, is Juana Barraza, known in wrestling as “La Dama del Silencio” and baptized in the media as “The Little Old Ladykiller”. A nickname that is already part of Mexico’s black history and its incomparable popular culture.”
