The body of the victim was found with a severe head injury in a drainage channel. The authorities subsequently confirmed that she was a trans woman.
The Jalisco prosecutor's office confirms that the person found lifeless this Tuesday morning in a rainwater channel in the Hogares de Nuevo México neighborhood in the municipality of Zapopan was a trans woman.
The discovery occurred minutes before nine o'clock this Tuesday at the confluence of calles Orquídea and 1 de Mayo, where the victim was observed inside the stormwater channel.
Due to the way the body was found, the first responders could not confirm the victim's gender, but from the beginning it was noticed that she was wearing feminine clothing.
Once it was confirmed that it was a trans woman who had a severe head injury, investigations began under the femicide protocol. (By Jose Luis Escamilla)
