Valentina's body was found on 28 November in a state of decomposition in a tank. She had been missing for eight days.

The eyes and one hand were missing - locals assumed that pigs living in the area had eaten the hand.

Relatives believe that Valentina as a victim of transphobic hatred. She had moved from Medellin to Ibague recently.
