Mona was shot three times in the back and foot on the street where she lived with other homeless persons by a person who passed by by foot. Among various hypothises, the police suspect the involvement of a local resident or merchant in the crime, who did not want the travesti to be around. According to neighbours, the night before, a person had set the belongings of homeless people on fire and fired shots at them, without hitting anybody.
