Luis' body was found in his apartment. His ex-partner was arrested.

The authorities are investigating the death of a transgender man, whose body was found gagged, in the El Trébol residential complex, in Río Piedras, and in which his ex-partner, who is detained, appears as the main person of interest.

The transgender man was identified as Luis Ángel Díaz Castro, 22, and who had been reported missing yesterday afternoon by his mother.

Upon arriving at the barracks, the victim's mother realized that her son's ex-partner was in a cell, identified as Domingo Rafael Aquino, with whom she had a sentimental relationship for approximately three months.

In January, Díaz Castro denounced his ex-partner for the Domestic Violence Law, for which the man was admitted to prison for probation. Allegedly, the man was arrested yesterday for a robbery, an isolated event to what happened in the residential.

The victim was apparently the sole owner of the apartment and according to his mother lived alone.
