Brigitte died from head injuries several days after being thrown from a vehicle.

After hovering for several days between life and death, the young [deadname] Galván Uc, 20, who was thrown from a trailer and hit [her] head, died.

Witnesses reported that "Brigitte", as Galván Uc was presented, was thrown out of the truck on the Mérida-Cancún highway, when [she] was exercising sexeservice (the mention of this fact is to understand under what circumstances the murder occurred, not to condemn the activity of the victim).

When [she] fell, the young [woman] suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. When witnesses went to help [her], they found [her] with a wound on [her] head, which was bleeding profusely.
