The Albuquerque Journal said an autopsy report showed Victoria had
human papillomavirus (HPV) at the time of her death, suggesting she
had suffered sexual abuse in the months before her death.
Michelle Martens has reportedly told investigators she had offered her daughter online to pedophiles who wanted to rape her.
The autopsy shows Victoria had no meth in her system, contradicting her mother’s claim that she died from an overdose of meth, which she had given to relax her.
32-year old Fabian Gonzales and his 32-year-old cousin, Jessica Kelley, will stand trial along with 35-year-old Michelle Martens.
Martens initially claimed that she and Gonzales had been attacked by Kelley, a convicted rapist, in the night, and had no idea what had happened to Victoria.
“Jessica comes into our bedroom and asks me if I believe in God. She kept hitting me, hitting me, hitting me, punching,” she said.
As she fled the scene, Martens claimed, Kelley shouted: “You daughter’s dead!”
But during the course of the police interviews, her story changed: She then told cops she and Gonzales had left Victoria alone with Kelley, and the girl had died after taking some meth she found.

Martens said Gonzales and Kelley disposed of Victoria’s body – which was found dismembered and wrapped in a burning blanket – and they threatened to kill her if she ratted on them.
Police, doubting her tale, tricked her into believing that Gonzales was giving up the truth in another room.
Ultimately, she admitted the truth. She said she had sat back and watched Gonzales and Kelley rape and murder her daughter, even though the girl begged for mercy, KTLA reported.
Indeed she admitted she had watched the pair rape Victoria on at least three other occasions in the days before she was killed, and she thinks Gonzales had been abusing her for a month while she was at work.
She told cops she enjoyed watching her daughter be violated, and had let two other men have sex with her in the six months before the murder.
It is not clear if the police have traced those men or whether they have been tested for the STD which Victoria had been infected with.
