In April 2022 a suspect was finally arrested:

Daniel T., who changed his name to Edwin Emanuel C., 29 years old, was arrested by investigative police officers in the Artesanos neighborhood, in the municipality of San Pedro Tlaquepaque, fulfilling a court order that existed against him for the crime of femicide in connection with the death of a trans woman.

The incident took place on August 19, 2020 on a farm in the Lázaro Cárdenas neighborhood, in Guadalajara, where [the suspect] allegedly deprived the victim of life by beating her. His motive was based on gender reasons and the personal issues that existed between both parties.
