Marilyn was shot 3 times by a man on a motorcycle. She died at the scene.

Marilyn was from Neiva (Huila) and had given an interview to La Patria de Manizales during Pride celebrations just a few months earlier.

“Girls can show the beauty of a woman in the body of a man, I have felt rejected and discriminated against in public companies and shopping centers. On the street that does not happen to me, but people believe that because you work on the street that you do not have manners. We are also human beings and we deserve equality.”
