Photos, video below.
Last week, we reported that eighteen-year-old Isabella Guzman had been formally charged with murder in the death of her mother in Aurora; see our previous coverage below.

We've now obtained the arrest affidavit in the case, and the level of violence it recounts is absolutely shocking.

The document, on view below along with plenty of new photos like the one seen here, maintains that Guzman's mom was stabbed 79 times.

Guzman's Facebook page, which remains online at this writing, features numerous stunning shots of the young woman, including this one....

...and this one....

...as well as an image of her onstage with a microphone wearing a "Hello Kitty" shirt:

These pics stand in stark contrast to the narrative of the Arapahoe County arrest affidavit in the case. The report states that Aurora police dispatch received a 911 call just past 10 p.m. on August 28 from Ryan Hoy, Guzman's stepfather.

He told the operator that Guzman and his wife, 47-year-old Yun-Mi Hoy, were inside the bathroom of the residence at 2624 South Lima Street -- and he could see blood coming under the door.

The scene of the crime.
Ryan added that police had been called earlier in the day because of ongoing strife between Guzman and her mom -- and 7News reveals that the girl's father, Robert Guzman, had spoken to her about her "teen rebelliousness" about three hours before the 911 call.

"I went to talk to her because her mother was worried and wanted me to talk to Isabella," Guzman told the station. "So, I went to talk to Isabella and we sat down in the backyard looking at the trees and the animals and I started to talk to her about the respect that people should have for their parents. And I was trying to let her know that she should be obedient to her parents, not rebellious, that she should try to listen more and everything was going fine.

"In the conversation, I thought that I made progress," he added. "But obviously it didn't do nothing, because hours later, this thing happened."

I  know this will not make me popular but we don't know the full story and Isabella may have an untreated mental illness that the family refused to address due to fear of shame etc. Certain cultures will not allow outside help even in modern times.  I feel sorry for the family and for her Mom to suffer the way she did being killed by her own offspring but what has led up to it? I don't hate her at all.

Tiger mom  is a load. This is the problem with too many cultures that come with its owners when they come to the US. If this was a tiger mom thing I would have moved out.  I am sick of parents who claim they want the best for their kids yet fail to allow them to find the best in them. These Asian parents have this whole 'shame ' thing which they guilt trip to their kids.  How truly pathetic are these parents who don't want a happy well rounded child; no they want a kid that makes THEM proud.  Just as parents who have kids who dont marry and dont give em a gr kid feel.  These parents are the failures yet we kids live with their attitude .

I  hope she winds up on death row as an example to other teens who are so angry over nothing they think they have a right to do this. I can't wait for her to blame or state mind control by her friends. I can't wait for the sharks to say she has Mental Health Issues.  I can hardly wait for  her to waste our money and prolog the trial. I do hope she gets the crap beaten out of her in prison so her pretty face is not pretty any more. She will, of course , if sent to jail, attempt to kill herself . Teens these days are pathetic & so spoiled that when their parents say 'no' they do as they damn please.  She is  19  YOU ARE THE ADULT YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.   One fact: she and her family could have sought therapy etc but CHOSE NOT TO. Parents, for God;s sake wake up! Your kids are out of control

how sad one life taken and another life wasted...

there is definitely another side to this story...that will never be told.... and that makes me sad. What she did is wrong...wrong....and sad. When someone is set off by abuse, they do bad things that no one who isn't abused can understand. I wish she and her family would have gotten help before she did this. Her young life is over. Truly sad all around.

I dont care if she had a mental disorder... whether she was cognicent or not, she still serves society no purpose and is a detriment there of... she needs to be ended...

87 stab wounds...that's a seriously screwed up family. You don't even need to read a report to figure that out.

Of course there's another side to this story because something set this girl off in a big time way. Whatever the reason, it doesn't justify this type of brutality and gruesomeness.

It's entirely possible, but does not excuse this behavior. If dad was molesting her, perhaps filing a police report would be a good start? rather than stabbing the OTHER parent 87 times?

there's way too much focus on her "glamour" looks and not nearly enough on her heinous behavior. What kind of person stabs their own parent 87 times? Who gives a rat's ass what she looks like--if she really did this (and it seems likely, as her FATHER's comments in the affidavit indicate) she should be treated like any other person accused of such a crimel. Stop focusing on her looks and her FB page, and maybe more on what caused her to do such a horrible thing? Westword, your articles are usually really good, but this article doesn't really tell us anything except everyone thinks she's beautiful. Beautiful people can still commit horrible crimes.

shelia, she has no right to tell her side as far as im concerned... that was a personal attack,.. I don't care what the reason was... WHO STABS SOMEONE 79 OR WHATEVER THE COUNT IS , IN THE FACE????? and further more, if her "dad" was molesting her, don't you think it would be his face and throat that got the stabbing, not her mothers??

87 times sounds like there was some pent up hostility. Then again she MURDERED HER MOTHER.

Usually killing the mother in such a severely violent way indicates sexual abuse.

You know there's probably another side to this story. What if her step father was molesting her and her mother let it happened? We really don't know what happened and why. So don't make a judgment until you hear her side of the story.

@Krystle Robinson I agree.  Everyone here made up their minds what has transpired without any information. People love to hate on someone. I feel for Isabella and hope she is getting help and some care from someone and I do feel for the Mom, it's a shame all around.

@Krystle Robinson Being abused does not give one the right to take such revenge and who said she was abused.   I suggest more spoiled, and unhappy kids continuing to escalate their spoiled rotteness.

@DarlingCR   We are told the Death Penalty is not a deterrent. Nor is life in prison. I suggest she have both options done to her. Then make her the poster girl for such arrogant, spoiled, miserable, apathetic and selfish teens and young adults and let them know no more talking. We will put you in jail where you will be beaten and raped and that will be that .

@Richard Quindara Balagot This house is directly behind our house attached at the back fence.  All of the girls belongings (stuffed animals, pictures etc.) were thrown out in the trash the evening before this happened.  I believe that is what set her off.

@Ellen Zuckerman Actually, the state hires an alarming rate of pedophiles for police work and social services....This soft stance on weirdo's does not promote an atmosphere of retribution for these creeps....Ever wonder why non-violent drug offenders routinely get DOUBLE the prison time pedophiles do? There is a reason for this.......It's called 'sympathy'.......The sickos all belong to the same club....Our judges LOVE pedophiles......It's like a requirement to sit on the bench....You have to show your MANBLA card if you want to join.....Sick freaks....

@Emerson Boyd If mama didn't do anything about, or worse, ignored her child's suffering and blamed her daughter for the behavior as people sometimes do, then there's reason in the daughter's mind to kill and attack the mother.

But reading into this, it sounds more like the abuse wasn't sexual in nature, but perhaps a constant form of extreme bullying from uber-religious JW parents.

@Mario Parker  I know, right? To me that is a form of sexism to automatically assume that a woman had to be a victim somehow for each case like this one. it's like in their mind they think: "Female=Victim". It's also sexism to always assume that a man has to be a predator/criminal.

Even female pedophiles use that old tired excuse, as if that would somehow justify them acting out a sexual fantasy with a 9-year-old boy or something like that. Hell, most sexual offenders use that excuse regardless of their gender. Even Ariel Castro tried out that excuse when it was found out that he was the kidnapper of three girls.

 Guess what, people? Such a thing does not fucking excuse horrific crimes like this. Women and Men are not separate species unto themselves. They're both part of the human race, and just like everyone else they can have moments where they just completely lose their minds for no good reason. Both can be sick, perverted, etc.

@Shelia Canfield-Jones that's no excuse to kill  your mother,  she is a savage beast!!

auroramoon2011

@Shelia Canfield-Jones  the "I was sexually abused!" excuse has been used way too much by  total monsters out there in an attempt to justify what they do. Ariel Castro claimed to be sexually molested as a child, along with an addiction to porn... as if that would justify kidnapping three young girls and enslaving them as his sex slaves for over a decade.
   Likewise, this excuse would not excuse such a violent stabbing...

 What's more, I dislike how you automatically assume that she was sexually molested... *shakes head* have it ever occurred to you that women are human beings too just like men? Just like men, women can be dangerous criminals, etc. Hell, a lot of predatory female teachers out there already proved that women can be sick pedophiles too!  Being a woman does not mean that they are victims by default. That's just so sexist.

@sallyhourigan  And they couldn't call the police or 911 or human services. She is 19 she is an adult. She had options . She could have left .She chose to take revenge. She is not ill just angry  Too freakin bad. She should have moved out of the house if she was such an independent woman like they are all until they get in trouble then its daddy's little girl either way they are bitches

@sallyhourigan The voting age in America is 18;so yes she is of legal voting age. She is also considered an adult. Not happy,get up and get out.

@redsoxfan @sallyhourigan She just turned 18 and therefore did not vote when this happened -- I second sally: take your politics elsewhere, not the time or place.
