Gabriela was stabbed by her partner at their home. Her killer fled.

Several deafening screams alerted the community of the Florida Blanca neighborhood (in Engativá) when, inside a tenancy, a couple had a heated discussion that ended in a fatal outcome, as a transsexual woman, known as Gabriela, was cruelly murdered by someone who once said he loved her.

At 11:00 in the morning yesterday, several inhabitants of a residence located in the vicinity of Calle 68 with Carrera 92 came across the badly injured body of a woman of approximately 35 years, who had been brutally attacked with a knife. She had two prominent injuries: one on her back and the other on her abdomen.

Upon seeing the horrible scene, the inhabitants immediately contacted the emergency line to help the woman, who was transferred by the Police to the Engativá Hospital where the seriousness of the injuries ended up ending Gabriela's life hours after she arrived.

When the Police arrived, the woman was undocumented, but as they were able to learn hours later that she was a trans woman of Venezuelan nationality. It was established that the depth of the injuries caused a lot of blood to enter the woman's lungs, a fact that ultimately caused her death. Despite the help of the community, the murderer fled minutes before the neighbors could intervene inside the room where they both were.
