Alondra died after being shot by unidentified assailants in her home. Her father - who was shot trying to defend her - was hospitalised in a critical condition.
At dawn this Thursday, Alondra, a trans woman, was murdered when she was at her home located in the community of San Bartolo Atlatelulco, in the southern area of Toluca, for which the Mexican trans community demands justice for her memory.
According to the first reports, the 33-year-old victim was shot by unknown persons. During the attack, Alondra's father heard the shots, tried to defend his daughter from him and was also attacked with a firearm.
Despite the fact that both were transferred alive to the "Adolfo López Mateos" Medical Center, the trans woman died while receiving medical attention; meanwhile, the state of health of her father is reported as critical.
