Yuli was shot in her salon.

Several minutes before 10:00pm on Tuesday night, a trans woman whom everyone in the Las Flores neighborhood of Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, knew as “La Yuli” was shot.

Neighbors on calle Azahar, between Girasol and Geranio, heard the gunshots and then saw the murderer leave, leaving the lifeless body of his victim lying among the hair on the floor of the establishment. Although they immediately asked for the support of the paramedics, they could do little for her.

Municipal police arrived at the scene and cordoned off the area, and although they combed the surrounding streets to find the criminal's whereabouts he had already fled.

Yuli was 35 years old, she was a stylist and worked late at night. Witnesses point out that it was common for several men to visit her.

Some to require a haircut and others poorly thought out pointed out that several of them arrived smelling of marijuana, so they do not rule out the possibility that drugs were sold there.

The body that was not visible to the public was lifted and taken to the local Forensic Medical Service to perform the tests required under the law. While outside the aesthetics, family and friends lamented the violent death of “La Yuli.”

Another version claims that it was not just one gunman but three who murdered the stylist.

Given this, authorities of the Attorney General's Office of the State of Mexico are investigating whether this unfortunate transfemicide was a direct attack or related to a possible crime of extortion.
