Andrea Néstor was found with stab wounds to her back early on Thursday 12th February.

Néstor [deadname] Moreno Castillo, 32 years old, was assassinated at dawn this Thursday in the El Jazmín neighborhood sector in the avenida Colón de Calarcá area. They attacked her with a knife and from behind.

According to the information, people who were mobilizing around 4:00 in the morning found the victim lying on the floor and immediately notified the authorities who arrived at the site to find out what had happened.

Moreno Castillo was found with several stab injuries to his back. The scene of the events was cordoned off with the purpose of collecting evidence.

Note that her preferred social name is unclear (most sources say Néstor, but some refer to her as Andrea). Néstor was part of her birth name, but comments under a post by Red Comunitaria Trans suggest she was not inclined to change it after transition. If that was the case, it may be that "Andrea Castillo" was a name she experimented with but did not adopt.

As always when there is some uncertainty over naming, caution is advised. For now the name given on this report is a composite of both, but it will be updated if and when new information emerges.
