Ali's body was found in her room on Wednesday 26th February. Her face was bloodied and she had probably been dead for at least two days.

Ali Mamani Huamaní, a 44-year-old trans woman, was found dead in her room on Wednesday, February 26, by a co-worker worried that she had no sign of life for two days.

She rented a room on the third floor of Calle Garcí Carbajal 401-A in the Cercado of the city of Arequipa and worked in a beauty salon located on Corbacho Street.

According to Ali's companions, she was lying on the floor, her face full of blood and her room was completely messy.

Ana Flavia Chávez, trans activist from Arequipa, said that these types of crimes are not investigated in depth and if it were classified as a murder, it would probably not be classified as a hate crime by the authorities.
