Originally from Nicaragua, the woman is accused by the Section of Crimes against Physical Integrity and Trafficking who raided a beauty salon used as a front, in the center of Guadalupe, which was frequented in its majority by men.

Authorities learned in the investigation that began in October 2018, that each client was charged ¢22,000 colones (US$37) for a one-hour session with women, but paid them only ¢5,000 colones, pocketing the rest.
