Susan died after being stabbed in a residence, reportedly by a client.

A trans woman was murdered with a sharp weapon in the Belén commune . The crime, which was committed by a man, is the subject of an investigation.

It happened in the early hours of this Tuesday, August 8, in a house located at Carrera 69B with Calle 27 in the Belén Granada neighborhood. The victim was identified as Susan Fernández, a Venezuelan national.

Apparently, the woman was a sex worker and, according to a version known by Q'HUBO, she was stabbed by a client who did not want to pay - although another account indicates that the victim and perpetrator had known each other for some time.

After the attack, the other people who were in the house took Susan to the Medellín de Occidente Clinic, where she died due to the seriousness of her injuries.

Susan had arrived in Medellín since December of last year and at this time the authorities hope to find the attacker as soon as possible because her face was recorded by the camera.
