Luisa was stabbed by a client.
On Sunday afternoon, a client of Luisa arrived in the Las Guapas sector. They then went to a residence on Calle 21 and Carrera 16. Five minutes later another man entered, who said that he needed to rent a room. He sat on a piece of furniture and waited while they assigned it to him.
When the [trans woman] left with her client, the other man stopped to go to the bathroom, but as he passed in front of his victim he pulled out a knife and attacked her repeatedly. She tried to flee, but before reaching the door of the residence he finished her with a stab in the neck.
People who were in the residence tried to chase the murderer, but he slipped through the crowd in the sector. They tried to help Luisa, but a lot of blood came out of her mouth. The policemen who arrived instantly put her in a taxi, but there was nothing he could do.
Her co-workers remember her as a calm and sociable person. They say that last week a man was looking for her and they had an altercation, but that is the only problem that they knew about him.
