The Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz (Ensayo de un crimen; Rehearsal for a Crime) (1955) [Patricia Terrazas]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by slitting her throat with a razor; her body is shown afterwards (covered by a sheet) lying on the floor while the police investigate the scene. (A short time earlier, there is a daydream/fantasy sequence in which Ernesto Alonso slits her throat, but he learns that she's done it herself before he can carry out his plan.)
