Vicente González Lorca, a 25-year-old young trans man, was found murdered on Saturday October 31 in a vacant lot on avenida Patricio Lynch, in Valdivia in the Los Ríos Region of southern Chile. Vicente had started his transition a couple of years ago and had been living in that city for a few months. He was from San Sebastián, a spa belonging to the Cartagena commune, in the Valparaíso Region.
The security cameras installed near the place were key to finding a suspect in less than 24 hours. On Sunday, the PDI Homicide Brigade detained Víctor Hugo Abarca Díaz, 58. So far he is the only detainee.
Vicente worked in the construction sector. He leaves a six-year-old daughter and a family who are calling for his murder to be investigated as a hate crime.
