Sophie was found unresponsive in her home by police officers while responding to a call that a person had been shot.

The death of Sophie Vásquez, a transgender Hispanic, has generated concern among those who advocate for greater protection and respect for members of this community.

The woman was shot to death in events that occurred in the city of Brookhaven, Georgia, on May 4, without the authorities having given further information about the perpetrator or perpetrators of the crime.

Sophie Vásquez was 36 years old and was part of the “EsTr Community (El / La)” that defends the interests of the trans community in Atlanta so that they can achieve the recognition and access to social services that other groups enjoy.

The “EsTr (El / La) Community” has organized a vigil for the next May 12 in honor of Sophie at the Northeast Plaza in the city of Bookhaven and has established an account on the gofund.me platform in order to help with your funeral expenses.

On 18th May a warrant was issued for the arrest of Pedro Silva-Renteria, 18.
