Jennifer was murdered during the night of the 20th of May on her own home in Ometepec, Guerrero state, Mexico. She was stabbed in the neck with a sharp object and would have died almost immediately.
Jennifer was known among her friends as Campanita and was a local transgender activist who was actively involved on the defence of the human rights of LGBTTTI people.
“Campanita was a peaceful soul who worked as a hair stylist and beauty therapist. We urge the authorities to clarify and solve this case. The death of Jennifer cannot be given impunity; stop homophobic and transphobic killings” declared Victoria Galarza, head of Centro de Capacitación.
