María Mercedes, the survivor of the rape that occurred last Thursday in Puerto Desmeado and mother of the four-year-old boy murdered in the attack, returned to her home in Salta on Tuesday.
A week after the horrific crime, Mercedes returned home with her husband, Celso Subelza, and three children where she was greeted by the Governor of Salta Province, Gustavo Sáenz.
Other members of the government were present to welcome Mercedes home: Provincial Security Minister Juan Manuel Pulleiro, the Coordinator of Liaison and Political Relations of the Governance Pablo Outes, and the Secretary of Human Rights Mariana Reyes.
In Puerto Desmeado, two suspects have been detained in relation to the rape and murder and remain in custody: a 33-year-old man who suffers from schizophrenia and a 16-year-old boy.
