Mexican Psychologist Accused Of Killing and Dismembering Husband and Then Faking Mental Illiness

Mexico Killer WifeMexico is fixated on an extraordinary murder case involving psychologist María Alejandra Lafuente Caso, 40. Lafuente Caso is accused of drugging, murdering, and chopping up the body of her husband Allan Carrera Cuellar, 41. She has claimed spousal abuse as a defense.

The actual facts of the case undermine a claim of a spontaneous act of self-defense or even a delayed response as an abuse spouse. Police say that not only did Lafuente Caso cut up her husband with a chain saw but then distributed his body parts around Mexico City, including his head which was found by children in a park. She then allegedly sent text messages from his phone to pretend that he was still alive. She then pretending to be a grieving widow.

When accused, she claimed to be an abuse spouse. Police say that she then tried to claim mental illness. Given the elaborate measures taken in the murder and its aftermath, both defenses would be difficult to establish. The mental illness defense was particularly interesting since she is a trained psychologist familiar with the protocols and conditions for such illness. Yet, another doctor concluded that she was faking the symptoms and responses.

  1. Darren … “Vista” site also says:

    Download a genuine and reliable malware removal tool that will delete all CryptoWall related components.

    Then it offers a 3rd party outfit to download named “Spyhunter”, a pay fee package. Who is that? Do you have reason to trust them?

    How does one tell if a removal tool is “genuine and reliable?”

    In short: Why do all the forensic outfits I’ve talked to say that Crypto Wall is still unmanageable?

    I think I’m getting paranoid here…. 🙁

  2. Darren…the “Vista” site says…

    CryptoWall can enter the system as a legit update for a program. Most of the time this program is well-known like Adobe Reader, Flash Player, Java or similar. Know that when visiting unsafe and unreliable pages, fake update messages might appear.

    A flippin men. Witness my screed about “Flash Player.” “Reader” is no better. I have the most recent “Java” updates, but I get the false flag crud from them too. Sometimes it is difficult to identify “unsafe” sites when perusing “links” provided by others…ever here.

    My newest “rule” is to never respond to requests to update diddly squat unless it appears in my windows “tray” for various items. Even then I am only about 40% (or less) confident I can’t be attacked…by my own stupidity. OE is an evil thing…and we all experience now and then. I respond to nothing “Adobe” (unless a “paid for” software) even in the “tray”, period…at least until I just have to because nothing in Flash or Reader works anymore. Then…I go to the Adobe website, directly, (no “tray” links) and down-load from there….after un-installing all prior versions. The KISS principle may be deceased I suspect….

  3. Back on topic…I “vote” that the lady in the photograph has implanted breasts…the “indentation” by the top is v-e-r-y slight and perfectly possible for the implants I’ve seen elsewhere. Never-the-less, if a woman is happy with some implantation, other than murderers, good for them. I am long past forensic examination of women’s breasts, other than those I am “authorized” to palpate 🙂

  4. Darren….thanks for the suggestions, but I am already running the latest IE, plus the latest Opera. I will also check out the link you provided, it just might make my morning less irritating. A lot of what I know about Cryto Wall 2 is based upon the research published by Bleeping Computer, among a couple others, a decent source I’ve used in the past.

    Chuck Stanley …. I will again try the suggestion you made about crapware removal…in the past I haven’t found them helpful, nor Firefox or Chrome…the latter slows things down worse…at least for me. I very rarely utilize 3rd party sites, other than places like Bleeping Computer who I have found safe. Bleeping Computer may have also discovered a solution to Crypto Wall if they’ve done so for Crypto Locker…this tech info rapidly improves and it’s been a few days since I last checked their site.

    One thing that may be slowing me down is the amount of complex software and files I have, including AutoCAD…I already dumped Microstation. I will be dumping AutoCAD (costs to much now that I am retired) when it “expires” (skip one ipdate and by the 2nd, it “expires”). Acrobat Pro allows veiwing AutoCAD files (as a single compiled layer) and I can get by with AutoSketch, also by AutoDesk….about $100 or so compared to $1000, LT version, to $4000 for a full blown site license for AutoCAD.

    A concern for Crypto Wall is that any package capable of encrypting “documents” of all kinds, including email depending upon the email handler you use, moving them to another folder is also capable of moving them to their own servers ala’ the Sony affair. This is the first Trojan/virus malady that I’ve stumbled on trying to remove or overcome otherwise. The guy with the problem replaced his hard drive (nominal expense solution) and re-installed his OS and stuff…but he is mostly concerned about the photographs he has taken from all over the world and of his family as they’ve grown up. I’m insisting he utilize a back up drive and suitable back up software in the future…a small “Passport” 1 TB drive isn’t much to add to your travel kit or your desktop….only a bit larger than a pack of cigarettes, and requires no external power supply…very fast if using USB 3.0….and decent using 2.0.

    Thank you both for your suggestions. In the back of my mind is the thought that my issues may be derivative of OE.

  5. Chuck Stanley…I just tried your new WP website and it loaded instantly. So now there are three WP sites that wont make me weary.

    1. Aridog,
      Agree with Darren that your problem may be in the browser. Both Chrome and Firefox tend to be faster than IE, especially when running the latest versions. You might also try running the Junkware Removal Tool and Adware Cleaner. You may have a bunch of spyware and adware tracking stuff running in the background slowing you down. JRT and AC are lightweight crapware removal tools. You can find a lot of interesting free stuff at They just posted a tool for dealing with Cryptolocker. gives you a choice of using their own download or go to the original developer’s site to download stuff. Be very careful when downloading from third party sites. They may try to piggback stuff you don’t want. Don’t click “agree” to the TOS too quick. Look for little checkboxes asking you if you want free extra add-ons from sponsored sites.

  6. Chuck Stanley … I don’t know why WP is hard to load either, but for me on a Win 7 Pro PC it is similar to the old days of dial-up connections. The only two WP sites I don’t have the problem with is this one ( after Darren fixed something…to prevent spurious spam file allocations IIRC) and one other in Israel….which loads instantly, faster than here in fact. Blogger loads instantly for me as well. My ISP is Comcast….the fastest in my town (Detroit/Dearborn). I have no trouble with 98% of other websites that don’t use WP or Blogger.

    Don’t even get me started on Flash Player…every single time I follow their instructions and download an update, it is a mess. I have to un-install all of previous Flash Player, then re-install the newest version. Every time. I no longer use their updates and just un-install then install the latest version when nothing requiring Flash works anymore. I installed the latest Flash player last month and today I got another of those messages saying I needed to install an update in a Flash Player screen…checked other locations and Flash Player was working fine. Befuddles me how good Adobe “paid for” software is (PhotoShop, Light Room, and Acrobat Pro) and how miserable their free ware is … at least for me.

    Another question: If you know of a remedy for “Crypto Wall Version 2”, please let me know, here, or by the email address in my profile. I don’t have it, but a friend does. So far the forensic recovery people I have talked to (most recent is Kroll On-Track) say there isn’t a sure remedy yet. It attacks the “Documents” files, encrypts every file, moves them to a folder buried in the Registry, then deletes the original files….followed by a demand for ransom of $750 in Bitcoin to get (maybe?) the de-cryption key. At present a friend has the virus and I am trying to recover the ghosts of the deleted files in his Documents folders…using recovery software & and a stand alone hard drive hub that looks at a drive like you would a CD or DVD, sans the OS, via a laptop I have for travel that is more or less empty itself…I’ll know tomorrow if that works. Problem is that Crypto Wall will let you continue to use the computer (which he did while traveling in Eastern Europe), just captures your documents and the repeated overwrites may have eliminated the ghosts of prior files. A lovely piece of work.

    And for everyone else…I apologize for the OT stuff here…but if Mr Stanley knows something, then I need to know…and I suspect he does know more than me. Never mind you need to know about Crypto Wall versions 1 or 2…at present a back up drive is the only defense if you use backup software that itself encrypts files (I do)…and don’t even try any East European sites.

      One thing that could be effective for wordpress type blogs loading slowly might be to upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer or try an alternate such as Firefox to see if that clears up the lag issue you are seeing for page loads. Older version of Internet Explorer tend to load wordpress slower, especially articles having more than four hundred comments. This does not seem, in my experience at least, to happen in newer versions.

      For the CryptoWall problem here is a link:

      See if that helps your friend. I haven’t ran into this issue myself so that is all the information I can offer. Hope this helps.

      1. Darren, et al. – I use Chrome to load this site and it pops up immediately unless there is a problem on my end. I found using other sites that I was having more trouble if I used IE or Firefox, so I stuck to Chrome unless it crashed.

  7. I don’t know why WordPress is hard for anyone to load. RIL is a WP site, as are at least half the blogs on the internet. Some use Blogger, which has about the same loading time as most WP sites. The thing that slows down any site is a lot of stuff that requires flash and scripts. I bog down with script. That is one reason I use AdBlocker. Ads slow loading down to glacial speed on most sites.

    Factoid: Flowers for Socrates is one of the fastest growing sites on the internet. According to Alexa, FFS has gained 12.5 million places globally in just the past three months.

  8. Nick…I tried to look in at Flowers for Socrates…another dang WordPress site that took forever to load…I gave up. No Darren, and WordPress is off my menu…only other exception is a blogger in Israel I read daily who has conquered the WP demons.

  9. Jag, A lot of folks are @ Flower for Socrates. Have you been there? You’ll see a lot of the old timers. Regarding men’s locker rooms. Do you remember the first women reporters going into men’s locker rooms? I saw an interview w/ Jackie McMullen, a good sports reporter in Boston. She has seen it go from contentious and nasty, to no big deal. The New England Patriots were one of the nastiest locker rooms back in the day.

  10. Nick…. This reminds me of the Good Ol’ Days around here…
    makes me miss a lot of the people we have lost over the last few years.. 🙁

    and in MY opinion, there is NOTHING wrong with a Men’s Locker Room…

    Though, I do tend to be one of the guys…. 😀
    I can be just as crude and sexist as the next guy…

  11. Groty…

    There are PLENTY of women with fake nails and fake boobs,
    Though, I am still of the opinion that these boobs are real…
    and while some people are a into making themselves look good…
    They are NOT usually the ones who are chopping people
    into tiny pieces…. 😀

    with the exception of Bundy, many of the most brutal killers
    are NOT well dressed …. and they are NOT generally into
    doing anything to make themselves look nice…

    In all honesty…. This woman is HOT!!!!

    and I can tell you from experience that SOME people just age
    VERY well…

    I just turned 48, and my avatar photo is
    from a few months back…..
    She could just have GREAT genetics…

    Of course the chopping her husband up into pieces
    could be a strike against her…. 😀

    But… Enhancing ones appearance is
    NOT something I look at as a negative……

    and lastly, while her nails might be fake. which is VERY common…
    the rest of her looks really natural….

  12. Aw, this was a really good post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never manage to get anything done.

  13. See, we have had some good natured fun here w/o any problems . And, what the hell is wrong w/ a men’s locker room anyway?
