Patricia was shot by assassins riding a motorcycle. Her family believe that a criminal gang had tried to extort money from her but she had refused.
Two assassins on a motorcycle ended the life of a young trans woman, who was leaving a candy store located on Calle 1, at kilometer 36 of the former Panamericana Sur in Lurín . According to the investigations, the criminals intercepted her and then shot her eight times with a machine gun.
"We arrived and saw her lying on the ground with 8 bullet wounds in different parts of her body. They told us it was a machine gun. They were two people dressed in black on a motorcycle," said her sister-in-law Emma Chumpitaz.
"I'm going to work, take care," were the last words that Patricia Mazzini gave Emma. According to the investigation, apparently Patricia was a sex worker who worked in the place who was murdered and had been threatened by a criminal gang that sought to take over the streets of Lurín.
The father of the victim, Antonio Mazzini Parodi, expressed sorrow that this loss is irreparable. "We are poor, what is happening to us is a horror. They are not going to return my daughter to me," he said. The family requested that security camera footage from businesses in the vicinity of the homicide be requested and that the crime be investigated. "Let it be thoroughly investigated and let the guilty fall," he said through tears.
