Trans women murdered in Malaysia and Mexico

luis barrierTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Last week brought to our attention the report of two trans murders — one in Bagan Ajam, Malaysia, and the other in Mexico City.

Police found S. Athiswaran apparently stabbed to death at her home in Bagan Ajam after someone phoned the police. She was found tied up and face covered with plastic. The police are continuing to investigate and believe that at least two people were involved in the crime.

In Mexico City during an incident that occurred over 2 weeks ago, Hilary Molina Mendiola died after being thrown from a bridge. This was first brought to our attention by Planetransgender.  The report says the victim was naked and there was signs of a struggle. According to Terra News, witnesses say the victim was pulled from a vehicle and thrown off the bridge by two men. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

There is no further information on either case at this time. Anyone with further info can post it in the comments section below.
