Cancún, Quintana Roo (Mexico)
Tortured and killed
The body of an unidentified trans woman was found inside a bin liner dumped behind a hospital.
CANCÚN.- The lifeless body found bagged yesterday, behind the old General Hospital, in Supermanzana 65 of this city, was that of a transsexual person, and not of a [cisgender] woman as initially thought.
The body of this victim, with several burn marks on their back, was found inside a garbage bag, on calle 22, near the “El Crucero” area.
The case is still being investigated as femicide, since it is suspected that the victim was murdered for gender reasons, so the Special Prosecutor's Office in this crime is responsible for the case.
Burns found on the body resember those recorded during the murder of a gay man who was beaten and killed earlier this month. The State Attorney General's Office announced recently that the alleged perpetrator of that murder had been arrested in Tabasco.
