Video footage circulating online shows the young woman playing the role of a kidnap victim with an armed group of people surrounding her before the gun allegedly went off accidentally.

In the video, before the tragedy, she is seen sitting next to a man who is also pretending to be a victim with her hands and ankles bound at a small farm home in the Chihuahua neighborhood of Rigoberto Quiroz on Friday while 10 of her friends hold weapons and play the part of a criminal gang.

Before her tragic death, Martinez had earlier in the day reportedly written on social media: "Time does not stop and neither do I."

Cesar Augusto Peniche Espejel, the Chihuahua state attorney general told news site Proceso that a lot of factors were being considered in the investigation to unravel how the incident occurred.
