Nelly's body was found in a hotel room. Her attacker was almost certainly a man who she had arrived with less than three hours earlier.

A trans woman was found dead in a motel in Poza Rica , Veracruz; the body had been dismembered by the subject. The sex worker, who was identified as Nelly 'G', had arrived on Sunday at room number 15 of the [Acuario hotel], located [on calle Nicolás Bravo] in Colonia Ricardo Flores Magon.

First reports indicate that around 11:00 pm on Sunday the couple entered the hotel while passing through. Less than three hours later the man came out and said his partner would leave later.

As time passed and they saw that the trans woman did not leave, they went to the room, knocked on the door, looked in through the window and saw the body.

After being called, municipal police arrived who in turn notified the State Attorney General's Office in the northern region.
