Karlota was killed on calle Condado in what seems to have been a targeted execution.

Before she was killed, two people in an old car approached several trans women to enquire whether they had seen Karlota. One of the trans women reported that one of the individuals showed a firearm to the ones they asked. Nobody informed the police.
