Transwoman Paloma Dove, winner of the  2015 Nayarit Miss Gay beauty contest, was murdered last Thursday after being brutally beaten by a group of unidentified men, in the town of Etzatlán, state of Jalisco, Mexico.

Ms. Paloma, who’s name translates in English to “Dove”, was originally from Ixtlan del Rio, won last year’s title of Miss Gay Nayarit. The contest was held at the Casino Los Fresnos, in Tepic on July 18, 2015, where she prevailed against 9 other girls.

Versions suggest that the scuffle occurred in a nightclub in Jalisco, where they started arguing and ended up fighting, but Paloma manage to get home, despite the wounds. On the police report, it is written that she had problems with some Etzatlán men who seriously injured her.

However, even badly wounded, she refused to be taken to a hospital by family members and, so internal injuries ended her life.

According to the online site of Nayarit, none of the perpetrators were identified and arrested.
