Isabella was stabbed by an assilant who had attacked her and her friends while they were telaxing together in a park after a Pride celebration.
Isabella Garzón Monsalve, a 23-year-old trans woman, was in Astorga Park, in the El Poblado neighborhood, with several friends after the massive mobilization for the rights of the LGBTIQ population that traveled through various streets of the city.
According to the report of the Security and Coexistence Information System, a man attacked them with a knife in a park in the Astorga neighborhood of El Poblado at around 8:00 on Sunday night.
Three people were injured, two of them with minor injuries and one with a more serious injury and although she was transferred to a clinic, unfortunately she died. Faced with this fact, the criminal investigation section is carrying out all the investigative tasks and the urgent acts have already been originated. The alleged aggressor is in preventative detention, but has not been arrested because the necessary warrant has not been issued.
Various organizations, including the Popular Trans Network, repudiated the attack and noted that with Isabella's killing, there have been 18 trans women murdered this year in Colombia.
