Police officers discovered Karla's body in her apartment on Wednesday 9th May.

Note that Karla's name has been alternately spelled Carla by police reports documenting her death. Her Facebook profiles however use the former spelling.

Karla was only 18 years old, and just beginning her life. Blogger Monica Roberts shared this:

Karla is the 9th person we have lost to anti-trans violence this year in the US. She's the seventh trans person of color and the second trans Latina we have lost in the US in 2018.

She also the first trans person in Texas we have lost this year. This murder also is infuriating me not only because it happened in my home state, but because she was just 18 years old.

She was just beginning to embark on her life journey, and who knows what Karla could have accomplished had she been allowed to simply live her life.

Karla's Facebook profiles are https://www.facebook.com/karlapatricia9131 and https://www.facebook.com/karla.pavon.7.
