La Marquesa was one of two people shot dead in an attack on her salon.

It was on March 21 when two stylists were shot dead in the El Palmar neighborhood of the Minatitlán municipality, the first identified as Marco Antonio Cruz Jiménez who called himself 'La Marquesa', ex-queen Muxe de Minatitlán.

Her companion, who also belonged to this movement, lost his life minutes later.
