A 21-year-old TikToker was shot dead after a mysterious phone call late at night.
Popular Mexican TikToker Carla Pardini was shot dead after a phone call from a man who asked her to leave her house in western Mexico.
According to the Prosecutor General’s Office of the State of Sinaloa, on September 20, she was ambushed and shot at her several times near her residence in Culiacan.
Karla’s mother told investigators that her daughter answered the call around 22:30 on the night of the incident.

The next day, authorities found the bullet-riddled body of an influential woman near her home at the intersection of Katedratikos and Ignacio Lopez District streets. Witnesses told authorities that several armed men were roaming the area before Pardini was killed.
“We registered this as the murder of a woman due to the fact that she was exposed and was in a state of helplessness when the attack occurred,” Sinaloa Attorney General Sara Quinones told reporters on September 23.
Investigators have not named the attacker, and so far no one has been detained.
“We have reserved everything. We are conducting an investigation in the strictest secrecy, so as not to warn a possible suspect,” said the Attorney General of Sinaloa State.
