Versions suggest that the scuffle occurred in a nightclub in Jalisco, where they started arguing and ended up fighting, but Paloma manage to get home, despite the wounds. On the police report, it is written that she had problems with some Etzatlán men who seriously injured her.
However, even badly wounded, she refused to be taken to a hospital by family members and, so internal injuries ended her life.
