Natalia was murdered - allegedly by her boyfriend.

Last night, a Bay Area [trans] woman was murdered. This woman was my friend.

Natalia Smut is her name, and she was a fire cracker. I remember as a new drag queen in the area, I’d go to shows and she ALWAYS did a lip sync to whatever song was my fav at the time. It’s like she knew!

The first time I put myself in drag, she told me how proud she was of me, and she hyped me up so much. Every time after that encounter, it was big hugs and fuck everyone else! Hahah oh man, this really freakin sucks. It’s the best ones who are taken too soon. ):

A subsequent report confirmed that Elijah Cruz Segura, 22, had been arrested.

The Milpitas Police Department responded to a 911 call on April 23rd made by a male who identified himself as Elijah Cruz Segura, a 22-year-old Union City resident, said Captain John Torrez in a press release.

On April 23, 2021, at 2:29 A.M., Elijah Segura called 9-1-1 stating the victim was injured and that he was responsible for her injuries. Within three minutes, two officers arrived on the scene and took Segura into custody. Officers located the victim, (identified by friends as Natalia Smüt), laying on the ground nearby in the 1000 block of Hillview Court.

Officers provided aid to the victim who had significate injuries until fire department personnel and paramedics arrived. The victim was taken to a local hospital but despite the efforts of first responders and medical staff, she succumbed to her injuries.

Segura and the victim knew one another and were in a dating relationship. There is no threat to community safety associated to this act of violence.
