The 25 Strangest Unsolved Crimes From Latin America

Alaíde Foppa has been missing since 1980, but by now it is very likely she is dead.

The Guatemalan poet married leftist Alfonso Solórzano and was the founder of one of the first feminist publications, Fem, in the country. She was a professor in Mexico and lived in exile during the turbulent years of war in Central America. When her husband was suddenly struck and hit by a car in 1980, she returned to Guatemala to renew her passport and visit family. Rumor had it she was interested in working with human rights activists and guerillas there as well. On her way to buy flowers in Guatemala City, she disappeared along with her driver and was never seen or heard from again.
