Her family said she went to a beachfront hotel to meet a mysterious “American man” on February 14.
After she was reported missing, three days later, her white Jeep Liberty was found.
Local police said she was found in a fetal position with obvious signs of violence and nudity.
She is the 24th woman in the Mexican border city to be murdered this year, in an area notorious for brutality against women.
Her brother, named Francisco, expressed disappointment that police only opened a search team 24 hours after her disappearance, in line with Mexican policy.
He told Jornada BC that after the series of murders of women, there could be more victims there.
But he expressed his gratitude to his sister, saying: “My sister is very peaceful, smiling, she is a good person and does not have any problems with anyone.”
She recently graduated with a major in international business.
Another family member confirmed the tragedy on Facebook, saying: “Just to inform you that my sister has been found, unfortunately she is dead.
“I thank everyone who shared the message and who showed their interest. Thank you for your support.”
The State Attorney General’s office is said to be investigating the case, but no further details have been released.
