TULUM, MX.- Friends of a [trans woman] known as 'Jessica' found her dead yesterday at dawn on a sofa in her house, after she left a nightclub with a stranger.

Yesterday at 5:04 in the morning, two [trans women] requested the support of an ambulance on Polar Oriente Street between Alfa and Osiris Norte, as one person was injured and bloodied. The Red Cross paramedics arrived at the scene, who attended the 26-year-old JGR, who was bloodied on a sofa and with visible puncture wounds on various parts of her body.

As she no longer had vital signs they reported to the ministerial authorities as a possible murder case. At 6 o'clock in the morning, elements of the Public Prosecutor's Office and experts arrived, who began to work on the investigations and opened the preliminary investigation 156/2016 for the crime of homicide in tort of JGR, who was originally from Huimanguillo, Tabasco.
