Mary's body was found inside the bar she owned in Tayabas. She had been stabbed 33 times, strangled and robbed.

MARY JOY ANONUEVO, a transpinay who owned a bar in Tayabas, Quezon was brutally murdered and was discovered dead inside her establishment with several stab wounds all over her body yesterday early morning. People who reported this to me said that she was also strangled to death. Witnesses say that the crime might have happened after an altercation between Mary, the bar owner and the partner of one of the bar's waitresses. Mary had fired the waitress due to bad performance and once unemployed, she and her partner got into some financial problems which led to Mary being murdered by the waitress' partner. I was also told that the victim was robbed of money and other valuables. No clear report yet as to the whereabouts of the suspect. The LGBT group of Tayabas is currently coordinating efforts on this case. Ms. Anonuevo had just celebrated her birthday last October 15."

I am calling the attention of the Philippine National Police-Tayabas,National Bureau of Investigation in Quezon to please have an in-depth investigation so that the perpetrator is apprehended without further delay.

Condolences to the bereaved family and to our dear trans sisters in Tayabas, Quezon, we share your loss and your grief.
