Ashley's naked body was found in the kitchen of her apartment. She had been stabbed 14 times.

"Activists press authorities to probe the slaying as a possible hate crime". "The grisly scene at Santiago's home raised suspicion that she may have been targeted because of her gender identity". "The case has grabbed headlines and renewed complaints that Puerto Rico has never invoked a 2002 hate crime law covering crimes based on sexual orientation or gender identity".

Ashley owned a Beauty Salon.
