The organization Diana Sacayán, of which Nataly Briyith Sánchez was part, condemned and lamented the crime as well as pointing out that they live in a state that "does not recognize our identity and that discriminates against us. A state that does not provide us with the legal tools to fully access, and according to the parameters of human rights, our rights. "

They demand from the Attorney General of the State that this crime "be investigated as femicide and the maximum penalty against aggressor be requested." Failure to do so, they add, would be to discriminate against it for reasons of gender identity, "even though the Mexican State has the obligation to recognize the identity of the persons, even if the modifications in the official documents have not been made."
