Jordana was shot in her restaurant.

Itaty (Sipiy Rune Coding CPTSX002114823), a 45-year-old trans woman, was murdered this Sunday, August 13, 2023. Itaty was in business, a place that served à la carte meals such as baked goods, chicken in juice, rice with stew etc. The causes are unknown. Criminalistics arrived at the place to carry out the lifting of her body.

Itaty was a member of the Asociación Transmasculinos LGBTI de Playas collective, which maintains alliances with the Silueta X and Transmasculinos Ecuador de Guayaquil Associations, as well as part of the National Federation of LGBT+ organizations and the National Trans Platform. The Playa community is dismayed by what happened. In this context, the pertinent condolences were sent to their friends and family.

For these reasons, we call on the State Attorney General, Diana Salazar, the Police Commander, Fausto Salinas Samaniego, the Minister of the Ministry of Women and Human Rights, Paola Flores, the Undersecretary for Diversities, Alexander Guano, the Ombudsman of Ecuador (e), Cesar Córdoba Valverde, to carry out the necessary coordination to find the culprit or culprits, of this fact that mourns our community.

The Runa Sipiy Report of the Silueta X Association, on transfemicides, LGBT+ murders, violent deaths that have not been clarified or suspected of criminality, registers this case as the twenty-first of this 2023, against our populations in Ecuadorian territory.
