The family does not know in which social network Ale contacted his murderer and so far they do not know what the lines of investigation of the State Attorney General’s Office are. Currently, her relatives are concentrating on giving him a dignified farewell in Misantla, Veracruz, where they are from.
As PÁGINA NEGRA reported, the makeup artist originally from Veracruz, decided to meet a man in Puebla who she contacted on social networks, however, the man stabbed her with broken glass inside the Isabel hotel in the Historic Center of Puebla.
The victim was identified as Ale Zayas, a 26-year-old transgender girl who was traveling with a cousin in law. In an interview with local authorities, Ale’s cousin reported that they both work as makeup artists for MAC Cosméticos in Mexico City, but they are originally from Misantla, Veracruz.
Ale posted this image of herself on December 18, three rays before she was murdered. Ale captioned her post lamenting that she wasn’t sure how long she would continue to be employed due to the Coronavirus.
