TDoR list ref: tgeu/26-Mar-2017/Uilca


Wilka was on her way back from a friend’s house to her home in Loteamento Luiz Gonzaga when she was attacked and stabbed in the abdomen, neck and back. A friend reported that she was murdered after a robber realised that she was transgender.

“Wherever you are, good rest”  “Now you are free from the murderers of the earth.”

Note that the TGEU list gives her name as “Uilca”, but her friends called her Wilka so that is the name given here.
