Victoria Martens is the 10-year-old New Mexico girl who was raped and killed as her mother allegedly watched in August 2016. Victoria was strangled to death on her birthday before her remains were mutilated.

Now a new autopsy released in March 2020 shows that Victoria had an sexually transmitted disease. Michelle Martens, Fabian Gonzales and, Jessica Kelley, are the main suspects in the 10-year-old girl’s death. Michelle is the victim's mother.

Victoria’s body showed signs of sexual abuse prior to her death. She also tested positive for human papillomavirus — also known as HPV — a sexually transmitted disease.

In August 2016 Victoria was raped, strangled, also her body was dismembered and burned. The autopsy says Victoria had multiple abrasions and contusions to her head and neck, and her spine had been fractured. Some of her organs, including her heart, had been removed from her body, and were found in a plastic bag in a laundry basket at the crime scene.

Fabian raped Victoria while Jessica held her hand over the girl's mouth; all while Michelle watched. Michelle stated she got sexual gratification by watching her daughter get raped.

Fabian then had sex with Victoria again after she was killed. Fabian and Jessica have already plead guilty or been convicted. Victoria's trial remains pending.
