A 20 year-old trans woman was murdered in the early hours of Sunday (16 September) in the city of Votuporanga, state of São Paulo, Brazil.
The body was found near a dumpster in a rural region of the city. The victim’s genitals and one ear were found to have been cut off.
The Brazilian military police, who are investigating the case, suspect that the trans woman, who was a sex worker, was possibly taken to the remote location and murdered by a client.
The police still has no clues as to the identity of the murderer.
