Authorities had been on the hunt for the 25-year-old who was accused of killing little Abigail Riquel.

In the video from Wednesday evening, the alleged rapist was beaten to death by the angry residents – four days after cops began the manhunt.

At one point, a man holds him by his hair showing his beaten and bloodied face.

Guaymas can be seen covered in dirt and apparently unconscious while some people continue to strike him on his head and face.

Some people can be heard telling them to stop and even pushing people off – but are unable to hold them back.

The mob can be heard clapping in celebration and yell “Justice!” as the video comes to an end.

Tucumán Regional police chief Ricardo Fresneda told Los Primeros TV that as many as 500 people participated in beating Guaymas – who was naked and unconscious when cops arrived at the scene.


As well as beating him, some of the residents tried setting Guaymas on fire while others attacked him with machetes, according to reports.

Abigail Riquel was given permission by her parents to visit another girl’s home for a playdate on Saturday morning – but she never returned home, local media said.

Witnesses told authorities that the nine-year-old was last seen walking with Guaymas, who was holding her hands.

The girl’s body was found naked on a vacant lot in the village of Villa Muñecas about 1,000 feet from her home.

Her clothes were found scattered on the ground, and there was dirt covering her lifeless body.

Guaymas had been released from prison three days before the alleged sexual abuse and murder of the child for a robbery.

Argentinian newspaper Infobae reported that “sources from the case” said “it is clear there are signs of sexual abuse” after conducting the girl’s autopsy.

The source also said that the nine-year-old had tried to escape from Guaymas, but he choked her from behind and then hit her on the right side of her head – which killed her.

It is unclear if authorities plan on opening an investigation for the lynching.
