Transgender woman Aisha Albuquerque, 25, was found beaten to death Friday morning in an abandoned house on Rua Simão Kossobudski, in the district of Boqueirão, the city of Curitiba, state of Paraná, Brazil.
“There was probably a disagreement in business dealings with narcotics. The research teams are still going to talk to residents of the site to find out more details,”said Osmar Feijó, of the Homicide and Protection to the Person Division, of the Civil Police (DHPP).
The trans activist group Transgrupo Marcela Prado broke the news on Facebook:
