Horrific footage revealed the moment an angry mob dragged a suspected child kidnapper and killer out of a police car and beat her to death in the Mexican tourist town of Taxco.

The unnamed woman was being hauled away by police, after she had allegedly been caught on surveillance video helping a man dump the body of Camila Gomez Ortega who had disappeared Wednesday.

The villagers dragged the woman out of the police car and began wailing on her and tearing at her clothes.

‘We are fed up,’ a woman who identified herself as Andrea told the Associated Press. ‘This time it was an 8-year-old girl.’

‘This is the result of the bad government we have. This isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened, but this is the first time the people have done something.’

Frustration had been mounting since Camila went missing Wednesday after her family let her walk to a next door neighbor’s house to play. 

Surveillance video later surfaced of a woman in the same neighborhood carrying a basket of clothes into a taxi and helping a man carry a bundle, believed to be the young girl, in the trunk of the cab, according to Mexican media outlet Excelsior

The girl was found dead in the city outskirts that same day.

An autopsy revealed the girl had been raped and asphyxiated, the outlet reported.

The victim’s family members were able to pinpoint the home of the alleged murderers. 

They pleaded with authorities to arrest them, but police did not move in. 

Instead the mob swarmed the home, with some men seen climbing the roof of the house to force the suspected child killers out.

Finally police stepped in, as the trio was forced out out of the house, agreeing to take them into custody. 

Despite placing her in a police pick up truck, people from the town can be seen clawing at the woman until they finally were able to pull her out of the truck.  

An officer tried to pull her back in, but eventually gave up her body to the mob. 

Police stood by and watched the beating of her and two other men who were suspected in Camila’s death until the mob finished with them.

The woman was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries. 

The public killing of the woman coincided with Holy Week celebrations, which draw many tourists to the city

The public killing of the woman coincided with Holy Week celebrations, which draw many tourists to the city.

‘I never thought that in a touristic place like Taxco we would experience a lynching,’ said Felipa Lagunas, a local elementary school teacher. 

‘I saw it as something distant, in places far from civilization … I never imagined that my community would experience this on such a special day.’

Guerrero, the state where Taxco is located, has been plagued by violence.

Known as Tierra Caliente or the ‘Hot Lands,’ the region has been controlled by some 40 cartels and drug gangs who are fighting for control of marijuana and heroin production in that area.

In this part of Mexico, criminal organizations run the show, preying on locals and killing anyone who doesn’t pay to play by their rules. 

‘We know the town lives off of Holy Week (tourism) and that this is going to mess it up. There will be a lot of people who won’t want to come anymore,’ said Andrea. 

‘We make our living off tourism, but we cannot continue to allow them to do these things to us.’
