Man charged over death of trans woman in London

A man has been charged with the killing of a trans woman that was believed to be a US model and escort working in London.

Joaquin Gomez-Hernandez, 23, will appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today (17 May).

Vanessa Santillan, a 33-year-old originally from Miami, Florida, was found strangled and beaten on 28 March.

It was reported that she had come to London from Mexico. Her parents are said to have been left ‘devastated’ by the loss of their daughter.
