Patty's body was found wrapped in sheets and with signs of violence in an abandoned factory nearly two weeks after she had gone missing.

Patty (Sipiy Rune Coding CPTSX002316621), disappeared on June 16, 2023, on the way to Playita Mía and Los Esteros de Manta, Manabí around 06:00 am after leaving an entertainment center. From that moment on, her whereabouts were not known.

Her mother reported her disappearance, however, she reported in various media the lack of support from authorities. From her own investigation due to the need to find her trans daughter, she discovered clues leading to an abandoned factory that she did not dare go near because there were people in a state of drug addiction.

After she had insisted they do so for several days, the authorities approached the abandoned factory where they found her body in an advanced state of decomposition. Her body, which was tied up, was wrapped in sheets and showed signs of violence. Her mother had to identify her from her tattoos.
