This is the story of Isabel Miranda Wallace, a former teacher from Mexico City. Her life changed dramatically on the 11th of July 2005, the date when her son, Hugo Wallace was kidnapped and killed. This kidnapping is sadly only one of many that almost always end with the hostages being killed. These kidnappings are like a plague that has come over Mexico; In 2008 there were more than 300 kidnappings, but only a small percentage of these are ever reported to the police and in most of the cases the criminals stay unpunished. The population does not trust the police and in the case of Isabel Miranda’ s son, it seems that she has done the job of the police: privately investigating into how her son`s kidnapping. She promised to pay off anyone who would find her son’s kidnappers and finally suceeded in finding her son’s murderers. Her investigations led to the arrest of a large part of the gang of Caesar Freyre that was responsible for the homicide of her son. In 2005 she founded the association “Alto al secuestro” („Stop kidnappings“) with which she tries to fight this sad phenomenom existing in Mexico. Currently the association is working very hard to find two criminal fugitives and above all to find the body of Isabel Miranda’s son. From the moment Isabel Miranda has started her investigationsthere have been attempts to murder her. She has to live with an armed escort provided by the Mexican State.
