[Deadname] Arteaga Morante, affectionately known as 'Chepina', was shot to death while she was at her home. An unknown subject gave her a passport to the country of the dead. The event was recorded at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 10, in the Camilo Giler citadel, in the Chone canton, in the north of the province of Manabí.

According to witnesses, the 22-year-old victim was badly injured after the violent attack. Due to the seriousness of her situation, her relatives took herr on a tricycle to Hospitale Napoleón Dávila.

Despite the efforts of his relatives, 'Chepina' lost her life on the way to the health home, at the height of Calle 7 de Agosto and Mercedes. Her body remained in the tricycle where it was transferred.
