  • Franyerlys Zambrano Briceño was married for less than a year.
  • She was Venezuelan and married to an American.
  • The nightmare began on December 24.

In an attempt to seek justice, Guiasmeli Briceño traveled from Venezuela to the US with a steadfast purpose.

That purpose is for her son-in-law, Arthur Eugene Guty Jr, to face the full weight of the law for the alleged murder of her daughter, Franyerlys Zambrano Briceño, in December 2023.

«I want it to be heard today, before the world, that Franyerlys Nicole Zambrano is a person deserving of respect, and I want justice to be served as soon as possible,» pleaded the Hispanic mother.

Mother of Franyerlys Zambrano Briceño seeks justice

This while expressing her confusion over why the investigation against her daughter’s husband has taken so long.

The couple had been married for less than a year and resided in Farmington, Pennsylvania.

For reasons still under investigation, Guty allegedly fatally shot the 26-year-old Venezuelan inside the home they shared.

The American-born man then purportedly fled the country with $100,000 in a suitcase, seemingly to escape justice.

The nightmare began on December 24

In her daughter’s case, Briceño remarks, the officers found the weapon, the body at the scene. «Why do they want to drag this out so much?»

The nightmare for the Venezuelan mother began on December 24, 2023, when all of Franyerlys’ acquaintances, both inside and outside the United States, lost contact with her.

Five days later, on December 29, 2023, officers from the Uniontown Police Department obtained a search warrant and entered the couple’s house, where they found the body.

Haven’t they done an autopsy on the Venezuelan woman?

«She had a gunshot wound in a vital part of her body,» said Uniontown Police Lieutenant Thomas Kolencik at the time, adding that they found a Magnum .357 revolver inside the residence.

Nearly four months after losing her only daughter, Briceño still lacks clarity on when or why her daughter was killed.

«Today, I still don’t have the autopsy report of my daughter. After all this time, I don’t know if there was aggression. According to the police, there was no abuse or struggle; apparently, she was sedated, but I don’t know the reason. He hasn’t spoken, or the police haven’t told me,» she said.

The Venezuelan appears composed, refusing to cry in front of the cameras. Her strength, she explains, comes «from the desire to seek justice» for her daughter.

They have said that Franyerlys wanted a ‘sugar daddy’

She remembers her daughter through a necklace with a heart-shaped pendant hanging around her neck, one of the few possessions she recovered after Franyerlys’ death.

Since the day she was notified of her only child’s tragic death, Briceño has not only suffered from her loss but also from negative comments about her on the internet.

«Social media has destroyed her a lot, and they have said many things, and I come to clear her name,» the Hispanic woman claims.

The distraught mother insists that such comments have created a narrative that discredits and somehow justifies the young woman’s fate.

If he were a millionaire, she wouldn’t have worked

«I don’t know why they go to such extremes, just because he’s American and she was a foreigner, an immigrant, they have to be harsher on the immigrant because she wanted his millions.»

«If he were a millionaire, I assure you she wouldn’t have been working,» Briceño clarifies.

No matter how hard she tries to understand what went through her son-in-law’s mind, the Hispanic mother cannot find an explanation.

«If it was due to any mistake, because we are human beings, whatever she might have done and it went to an extreme, there is no reason to kill anyone.»

«There is no reason to kill a person that way»

«There is no reason to kill a person in that way,» laments the Hispanic woman.

Although Guty, her son-in-law, is in prison and faces charges of criminal homicide and aggravated assault in connection with the death of his second wife, his mother-in-law hopes that his punishment will be severe.

«Today, I don’t feel like he should be killed because I am not the one to sentence him to death, but I want him to pay for everything, everything, until the end of his life,» she points out.

Franyerlys’ mother believes that her tragedy should serve as a lesson to other families to prevent their daughters from being in danger. «If there is any alert of something, say: ‘Mom, this is happening,’ and in that way avoid the sad ending.»
