A woman in Naucalpan de Juarez, Mexico was simply trying to play a prank on residents in her neighborhood. Now, she’s reportedly dead.
As first reported by The Sun, the woman had dressed up as the Weeping Woman, known as ‘La Llorna’ in Latin America. The ghost is known for walking the streets and mourning the death of her children. The legend of La Llorona is deeply rooted in Mexican pop culture, with the story being told to children to encourage them not to wander off after dark.
According to folklore, the terrifying figure walks around in despair after drowning her children in a river in a fit of rage after seeing her husband with another woman.
Locals said they saw the ghostly woman prowling the area on October 15 while shouting “ay mis hijos” meaning “oh my children”.
One resident filmed the woman’s antics just moments before she was reportedly shot dead with several bullets by a scared neighbor.
According to local reports, the spooked shooter fled after opening fire at the woman, according to the New York Post.
The police have not revealed the victim’s identity, although she is believed to be between the age of 20 and 25. No arrests have been reported in connection with the shooting, either.
The woman was clearly in the spirit, just as many others are, as those in Mexico prepare for Day of the Dead celebrations as well as Halloween.
