Samira was stabbed by her ex-partner.

A Cuban trans woman was murdered by her ex-partner in Camagüey this weekend.

Samira Lescar , known as "La Loba", was 30 years old. In the early hours of this Saturday she was stabbed by her ex-partner four times, in different areas of her body and one of her wounds affected her heart.

Activist Kiriam Gutiérrez Pérez indicated on Facebook that on numerous occasions the victim's ex-partner tried to resume the relationship and not leave her life.

"It is rumored that the transfeminicide has already been captured by the police , although we look askance at the police treatment and from the justice that will be given to the murder of La Loba, which we know will not be exempt from re-victimization," said the activist.

Kiriam asked that the data on trans women be included in the "statistics of crimes based on hate, gender, sexuality and transfeminicides at the hands of couples, ex-partners, lovers or suitors".

The Cubalex platform recalled that with the murder of Samira Lescar , on June 17 in Camagüey, there are already 41 femicides reported in Cuba this year.
