Keny was attacked at a party and her body dumped in the street. A woman has been detained in connection with her murder and further arrests are expected.

A woman involved in the murder of a 16-year-old trans girl of Colombian nationality was left in preventive detention, who was abandoned lifeless in the middle of a public street in the center of Santiago, last Monday, October 16.

The detainee was identified as Gina Caicedo Canga, a 32-year-old Colombian whom the North Central Prosecutor's Office formalized as co-perpetrator of the homicide, and subject to the maximum precautionary measure decreed by the court.

The attack occurred in apartment 502 of the building at calle Tucapel Jiménez 136, where there was a party in which the victim participated in the early hours of Monday.

Prosecutor Fernando García confirmed that she died due to a "ballistic projectile impact" from a 9-millimeter firearm after receiving a beating and suffering stab wounds.

At around 6:42 a.m. that day, according to the security cameras, five women and a man dragged the body of the teenager identified as "Keny", and then left her at the door of the same building. Later, four of them left in a white vehicle and two fled.
