Carly VG was last seen around midnight Sunday, July 14 getting into a white Nissan Tsuru on Las Casas Street, Oaxaca de Juárez, Mexico. The car advanced a few meters when the passenger door was thrown open and Carly was pushed to the ground. According to reports the driver was drunk and got into an argument with Carly which ended with him stabbing her in the chest, piercing her heart.
Emergency units were called by those who saw the attack but to no avail. Carly passed away before arriving at DR AURELIO Valdivieso hospital.
Witnesses in the area told El Imparcial de Oaxaca that Carly was allegedly engaged in sex work. For this reason, it is presumed that the murderer was one of her clients.
No arrests have been made.
Mexico has suffered 31 Trans murders second only to Brazil which has had 85 reported murders since the 2018 TDoR.
Carly was the second trans person murdered in Oaxaca, a locality famous for trans Muxes. Transgender woman Pollita Ruiz from Tehuantepec Oaxaca was shot and killed March 13, 2019.
