Paris was shot by one or more assasins who fled in a vehicle.
The Trans Psycho Center of Quito of the Silhouette X Association, members of the National Platform "New Red Trans Ecuador" (which covers with its collectives the rural, community and the peripheries), the GLBTI Observatory, and the National Federation of LGBT Organizations, bring to public the following fact.
At 04h15 on Friday she was found in the bushes by the La Maria farm, which is on the Pajonal street, in Machala, to Paris Marchant Dioses, a 35-year-old trans woman. Shots were heard at the time and a vehicle subsequently pulled off at high speed. The National Police after being alerted found Paris, asking for help, which had been repeatedly hit by firearm. An ambulance took her to Teófilo Davila hospital. Because of the severity of her injuries, despite having been admitted to the operating room, the colleague died. Several of her friends have publicised her murder stating that the reason was her opposition to payments that had been demanded in recent days.
For all the described we call on the Attorney General of the State, Diana Salazar, the Police Commander, Carlos Cabrera, Undersecretary of Diversity Alexander Guano, the Ombudsman of the People of Ecuador (e), Cesar Cordoba Valverde, to make the necessary coordinations to deal with the or the perpetrators, of this fact that envelops our community.
The Runa Sipiy Report of the Silhouette X Association, on transfemicides, unexplained violent deaths or suspected crime, records this case as the fourth of this 2023, against our LGBT+ populations nationwide. During 2022, we close out our report we raised since 2012, with nearly 25 LGBT+ murders, transfemicides, unexplained violent deaths or suspected crime.
