Her Name Was Carla Patricia Pavón
Pavón was found strangled in her apartment in Citadel at Preston complex along LBJ Freeway near Preston Road after Dallas police and fire department emergency units were dispatched at 4:17 PM. She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
A Latinx male was reported as seen running from her apartment shortly before emergency units were dispatched.
Police are ruling the incident as a homicide, however there is currently not enough evidence at this time to rule it as a hate crime. There are currently no suspects in the case.
The police are asking anyone who has information that would help to solve the case to call the Dallas Crimestoppers at (214) 373-TIPS (8377) or the Dallas Police Department at (214) 283-4856.
Though two of her Facebook profiles have her name listed as Karla, police have confirmed her name as being spelled with the letter “C”. The initial report filed by the police had her age listed as 18; however they later confirmed her age was listed incorrectly. Pavón was just 26 years old.
Pavón becomes the 9th transgender person to be murdered in 2018.
Rest in Power Carla Patricia Pavón!
