Jessica died in hospital from a cardiac arrest four months after suffering a transphobic attack.

On 28th July Jessica was raped by Fábio Barreto da Silva (23) who attempted to strangle her, wrapped her unconscious body in a sheet, doused it in alcohol and then started a fire. Other guests saw smoke in the hallways and called the police but by the time she was found she had burns covering 50% of her body.
