Johana was found dead with her friend Débora Durán Correa in Débora's apartment in the Abdón Calderón neighborhood. Both had their hands tied and their skulls had been cracked open.

Johana was a hairdresser who owned a salon and also a member of the trans association Asociacíon Trans El Oro. A spokesperson of the group called the killing a hate crime.
