Tiffany was murdered by three men. The police arrested three suspects.
According to one of her relatives the victim knew her murderers and that they were clients.
Activists from the NGO Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) noted that violence against transgender sex workers is way too common in Guyana, underscoring that many incidents go unreported because the victims fear that no action will be taken against the perpetrators and added “laws which criminalise crossH dressing and sameHsex intimacy provide institutional validation for the prejudices which fuel violence against sexual and gender minorities.”
