A transgender woman was found dead in her ransacked New York apartment on Tuesday, her naked body sprawled across the bed, the Daily News reports.
Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar, 29, had not been heard from since Friday.
“We found her on her bed. She was naked,” said Barbara Vega, 35, of Bushwick, Brooklyn. “Everything in the apartment was destroyed. All her Marilyn Monroe pictures were destroyed.”
According to police reports, Gonzalez-Andujar had been stabbed several times, including in the neck and chest.
Vega said she had tried in vain to reach her friend since spending time with her on Friday.
“She never had any problems with anybody. She was full of life,” she said. “We need to know who did this to her.”
