In an interview with Viento Informativo, Alma, Norma’s sister, pointed out that the minor “went to the place (of the fight) because she no longer wanted to be mocked anymore, that is why she agreed to go to the place where the events occurred.”
“They always put my sister aside, in fact the other classmates bullied her, the men too, it was a very ugly bullying that they did to her,” said the woman.
“I always supported her, I went where she had to go, I am going to do justice for her. May she be happy because no one else is going to hurt her anymore, ”she added.
