Ximena died in hospital after being attacked in a hotel in the Azcapotzalco area of the city.
Ximena García, a trans activist, was the victim of a transfeminicide : she suffered an attack last Saturday, January 22, in the Azcapotzalco area. She died in hospital in the Cuauhtémoc area that same day.
The 24-year-old was stabbed last Friday and was transferred to the General Hospital of the Doctores neighborhood, where she died hours later.
In the face of the murder, the #JusticiaParaXimena campaign was launched on social networks as it was considered a hate crime, to which members and groups of the LGBT community have joined, as well as activists from Morena, a party of which the activist was a member.
A spokesman for the Mexico City Attorney General's Office (FGJ-CDMX), Ulises Lara, indicated this Tuesday, January 25, that an investigation into her transfeminicide has been opened.
The murder of Ximena García occurs only a few days after the activist Natalia Lane suffered an attempted transfeminicide in a hotel in the Portales neighborhood, Benito Juárez area. On January 16 she was attacked with a knife but managed to survive.
