Biography: Cecelia was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1987. She was the child of Lucas and Isabella Alva. Her mother died of cancer at a young age, when Cecelia was only 8 years old. Her father did not have the means to take care of her, seeing as he was just a peddler. He lost his job after his wife fell ill. He was a cook at local restaurant a few blocks from their apartment. He got laid off after missing too many days of work, tending to his child and sickly wife. After loosing both his job and his wife, he became a peddler on the street of Barcelona. After being arrested twice, Cecelia got torn away from the only family she had left and was thrown into foster care. She was a problem child, acting out and misbehaving, so she was constantly moved from home to home. By the time she was 16 she ran away from Barcelona and began traveling around the country. To stay alive, she used the only thing she had left to procure ends meat…her beauty. She was always a beautiful child, slender, tall, exotic looking. She used her looks to lure traveling gentlemen into a compromising position in some lavish hotel for the weekend. After she had her fill of fun with the men, giving promises of love and faith, and after being treated to all the luxuries they had to offer, she would often slip away with artifacts of theirs to hold her over until the next man came along. She would pawn their watches, or steal their money to keep off the streets until she could lure in another unsuspecting gent. But little did she know that this scheme would eventually lead to her the Americas. After almost five years of living off of gullible and horny men, she stumbled across a man that could offer her more than just a few shopping sprees, and late night hotel rendezvous. A man named James Stanford was traveling to Spain for a business trip. He owned a global trading company that required him to travel frequently. After a long day of business deals James sat in his hotel’s lounge to wind down from the day with a drink and cigar. He spotted Cecilia sitting at the bar all alone. She stared at him intently for a few minutes, occasionally making eye contact with the elderly gentleman. He eventually worked up the courage to go talk to her, even though he could tell he was about 30 years her elder. After flirting and making polite conversation for about half an hour, he was already madly in love. They spent the rest of his business week together only parting each other’s sides when he needed to attend a private meetings. Usually after about four days of spoils Cecelia would have slipped away during one of his meetings, never to be seen again. But she was a smart girl and saw her opportunity. He offered to bring her back to the U.S. with him when the week was done, and she accepted. She followed him back to upstate New York and moved into his multimillion-dollar home with him. A few weeks later they were to be married, and she began helping him with his company. After five years of being happily married, a tragedy struck. One evening while they were home alone, burglars broke in and things went very wrong. Cecelia reported to the police the next morning that three large men broke into their house, not knowing it was currently occupied. She reported that she got shoved through a grass door by one of the men, and woke up the nest morning after spending the whole night unconscious. When she awoke, despite her injuries, she ran around the house searching for her husband. She called 911 when she could not find him, and it was on this call that emergency operators could hear her finding her husband’s shattered body in the pool outside. When police arrived they found Cecelia kneeling by the pool in shock, covered in he own blood. When she was pushed through the door a large piece of glass cut her from the bottom of her left lower back, up to almost above her right hip. They found James’ body still floating in the pool with four gunshots in his chest. The police are still investigating the break in; there are some inconsistencies in the story. But for now, Cecelia has taken over her husband’s estate and company and seems to have already coped with the death of her “beloved” spouse. Read more about her life here.
