Family members were able to identify her two days later after an investigation and formally claimed her body on May 20th .

Indignation and anger over the death of Chucha was expressed by the trans Jazz activist Bustamante , who on Facebook spoke of hatred in Mexico "rising every day against our population . I strongly condemn this fact and demand that the three governmental powers act in the face of these facts "
