Adri was stabbed in the abdomen with a kitchen knife by a client who came to the establishment where she worked with other sex workers on 12 de Octubre Avenue.
Yamil Careaga Blanco, 22, was arrested at the scene. Her murder is being treated as femicide as Adri carried identity documents congruent with her identity.
The man stabbed the night worker after realizing she was transsexual, said Lily Cortez, leader of the Bolivian Night Workers Organization (OTN-B). The representative regretted that the aggressor had let out his transphobia against the worker, which is why her organization will take legal action as plaintiffs.
"We regret this transphobia. Although she is trans, for us, the sex workers, she is a lady, she is a woman and nobody has the right to take her life. We as an organization will constitute ourselves as a complainant" she said.
