Name Unknown

The victim was found murdered in her home in Colonia Villa Esmeralda. Her body was found by one of her friends with a cable tied around her feet, hands and neck.

According to local media, the victim was engaged in sex work and it was reported that after the crime, due to the lack of several belongings in the home, that the main line being followed by the Investigating Police of Tamaulipas is robbery.

The same media spread the transphobic version that it was a "homosexual with women's clothing", which has made it difficult to identify the victim, since she lived alone.
