Lara was found dying in the street after being stabbed in the neck by a client.

The [trans woman] identified as Lara Vinny was found dead this Saturday morning (18th), on the banks of Avenida dos Portugueses, in front of the Federal University of Maranhão (Ufma), in the Itaqui-Bacanga area of São Luís. According to the information given to the blog, she was found dying, breathing heavily, but they did not take her to the UPA, which is close to the crime scene.

Lara Vinny was stabbed to death. She was half naked, with her breasts exposed, and in shorts. The killer allegedly left the murder weapon stuck in the victim's neck.

On Twitter, [trans woman] @pepê_poetamarginal wrote about her friend's murder: “They killed my sister Lara viny in front of Ufma. Even when we are in prostitution, as it is the only way to survive for some, they kill us. I always took her down to the dancefloor. Several times we woke up on the ring road, taking care of each other. I love you black. Crying a lot”.

The [trans woman] also complained about the fact that Lara Vinny is being buried in men's attire.

“Damn, the cruel death that viny had is no longer enough, the family is covering her body with men's clothes, we are not respected at any time, not even in life and much less after death”, wrote @pepê_poetamarginal.
