María was shot in her car in Bairro Francisco Antonio Zea just a week after arriving from Rome. Nothing was taken.

On September 6 in Medellín Antioquia, in the Barrio Castilla, at 2:00 p.m., and a few meters from her family home, María Camila Parra was murdered. They were two individuals dressed up in the uniform of a parabolic television company.

She was shot 6 times inside her car and that killed her. Camila had no enemies because she had just arrived in Colombia after being away for two and a half years; It is unusual because they killed her just 7 days after arriving. In Europe, Rome, where she lived for 12 years, she had no enemies, was a very funny and popular girl. At the time of the aggression inside her car, nothing was stolen, they found her purse full of money, and her jewellry on her body.

It was a very heinous crime as she was shot 6 times in the stomach. Camilita had built an extensive heritage. She was always helping her family, which she lifted from poverty and gave all her generosity. A young rebel, who dreamed of a better future; having not long ago reassigned her sex. She did not deserve to die near her home, in the country for which he always felt homesick.
