Carly was stabbed by a client who called her over to his car at around midnight on Sunday 14th July. She died in hospital.

Local media reported that the young woman from San Pedro Pochutla was stabbed on Sunday night July 14 in downtown Oaxaca, around midnight.

Paramedics arrived at the scene to give first aid. Carly was then transferred to the Civil Aurelio Valdivieso Hospital, where she died soon afterwards due to the injuries she sustained.

The feminist group Oaxaca Consortium condemned the murder:

Mexico ranks second in Transfeminicides

In Oaxaca, we condemn the Transfeminicide of CARLY and demand that @FISCALIA_GobOax investigate with a gender perspective and that this case does not go unpunished.

Editor's Note: Some news reports name Carly as "Grecia", and give her age was 38. We're pretty sure those reports also relate to Carly, as the location given (the intersection of calle Las Casas and Victoria), date and other details such as cause of death all match.
