Anahí was kidnapped and strangled. Her body was then thrown from a vehicle and dumped in front of a nightclub.

Yesterday friends and family buried the remains of Anahy Rivas, a transsexual woman who was killed early Saturday morning and her body abandoned in front of a nightclub [named Kairos] on Bulevar Los Héroes in San Salvador.

One of Anahy's friends reported yesterday during the funeral that men in a van arrived alongside where the victim was (by the Benjamin Bloom hospital) and the occupants grabbed her by force and drove off.

"The men did not manage to get her fully into the vehicle when it began to move so that her legs dragged along the ground. She was held that for a journey of almost five kilometers," said the friend.

While in the vehicle she was suffocated with her own hair band. When she appeared to be dead, her kidnappers threw her on the pavement.
