This is the chilling footage of a mum and daughter dancing at a party just hours before they were raped, had their throats slit and their bodies dumped on waste ground.
The shocking incident took place in the city of Ecatepec in the Mexican state of Mexico after mother Angelica 41, and her daughter Karla, 16, left their house to go to a party.
At the party, Karla recorded her and her mother having fun with music playing in the background.

In the video, they can be seen standing together making faces at the camera and dancing.
Local media report some hours later their bodies were found in an abandoned area showing signs of having been raped and their throats had been slit.
Disturbing images taken from the scene shows the mother on the ground in a black dress and high heels with blood covering her neck and face.
Another photo shows the daughter with her jeans partially pulled down and her face appears to be severely discoloured.
One of the victims’ relatives, identified in reports as Rita, said: “We found out about their death on Facebook but we did not want to believe it until they were identified. We did not expect to see them how they were left.
“I think the authorities should listen to me when I say nothing should be left unpunished. I ask them to help me find out who killed my relatives.”
Relatives told reporters that neither victim had a boyfriend.
The National Citizen’s Observatory of Femicide (Observatorio Ciudadano Nacional del Feminicidio-OCNF) claimed that the protection and the guarantee of women’s rights have not been priorities for the state, therefore risking the lives of girls and women in Mexico.
The investigation into the case is ongoing and no arrests have been reported.
A press statement said 18 of Mexico’s 32 states are officially in a state of alert for gender violence against women.
