Cristina's body was found with stab wounds by her mother in her apartment on Sunday 1st November. Neighbours had heard screams the previous night.

The Silhouette X Association and the LGBT Citizen Observatory, through the Centro Psico Trans de Quito, denounced the fact that on November 1, 2020, the body of 32-year-old trans woman Cristina Rodríguez was found dead in her apartment in Carapungo, in the south of the capital.

Not knowing anything about what had happened to her daughter, Cristina's mother Olga Rodríguez, who called her every day, had decided to visit her at home.

When she arrived at Cristina's home, she found her beloved daughter, in a "prone position" (lying face down), with about four stab wounds on her back. Her pet was next to her watching over her body.

Preliminary accounts indicate that on Saturday, October 31, screams were heard coming from that address.

Cristina's family directly accuses her partner, with whom she had a relationship for a year. His whereabouts are currently unknown.
