Since 2006 more than 350,000 assassinations have been officially recorded, 112 000 disappearances and at least 52,000 corpses are held in cemeteries and mortuaries awaiting identification. Arely shares her work on the experiences of the families of disappeared persons and the practice of citizen-led forensics.
