She was found on the afternoon of 10th March in a sitting position by the door with a cable tied to both door knobs strangling her. There was a note for her mother found on the desk. At first sight her death appeared to be by suicide and her friends called the police immediately.

However following testimony the police have ruled the death as suspicious.

Everyone was shocked and upset when they heard Nefes’ death. Her friends and people who knew her told that she was a bright, fun and lively person who had aims in life.

Trans women in Ankara gathered in front of Nefes’ house following the spread of the news.
