The only survivor of the kidnapping in which two artist brothers, Jorge and Andrés Tirado Díaz de León, and their uncle, José Luis González Alcalá, died at the end of last year in the tourist neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City, offered her captors a million pesos (54,000 dollars) in exchange for letting them go, the Millennium group reported this Monday.

But Ochoa's kidnappers, her husband and her two nephews rejected the proposal, according to court documents reviewed by the aforementioned outlet.

The four victims were kidnapped on December 16 by members of another family with whom they shared the house located at 113 Medellín Avenue and with whom they were disputing ownership, according to authorities.

In her official statement, Ochoa said that she had moved into the house with her husband in mid-2022, after the death of the previous owner, who was her brother.

"On the recommendation of a lawyer friend of my husband, they tell us that we should not leave the house where my brother lived alone, a recommendation he made to us because Blanca Hilda intended to keep said property, since it was held as my brother's concubine," Ochoa told police.

["Here for 5,000 pesos any imbecile can kill you."

Later, his two nephews came to live with Ochoa.

All of them occupied the second floor of the building.

While on the first floor of the house lived the alleged concubine of the deceased owner, a woman named Blanca Hilda Ábrego Barreto, her daughter Sally Michael Arenas Ábrego, her son-in-law Azhuer Lara García and her grandchildren Randi Jiménez Arenas and a 3-year-old boy.

Ochoa narrated how Lara set them up when she and her other siblings were about to sign the sale of the house before a notary public.

The survivor recounted that the man went to knock on her door to ask her husband José González to move his car.

Then he told her that he had an accident on the stairs.

But when she went downstairs, the woman discovered that her husband was lying on the floor with his hands tied and his face covered with tan tape.

“They threw me to the ground and one of them even climbed on my back.

Once they finished tying me up and covering my eyes, they cut off the little toe of my left foot, they cut me on the sole of my foot," he said according to Milenio.

The brothers Jorge and Andrés Tirado were also surprised by the kidnappers when they arrived at the house, who tied them up and locked them in one of the upstairs rooms.

Jorge managed to untie himself in a moment and tried to free his brother, but Azhuer Lara discovered him first and beat and stabbed him, according to court documents consulted by the newspaper El País.

The kidnappers, about 10 people hired by Azhuer, cut off Ochoa's little toe and demanded a payment of half a million pesos to release her.

She said that she offered them a million in exchange for letting them all go.

However, she killed her husband and her nephews before they could make the payment.

On December 18, while Hilda and her alleged accomplices were discussing what to do with Ochoa and the bodies of her nephews and her husband, the Mexico City police entered the property and rescued her.

Seven people have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping and the three homicides, including Blanca Hilda Ábrego Barreto, Sally Michael Arenas Ábrego, Azhuer Lara García, and Randi Jiménez Arenas.
