A member of the LGBTQIA community – transgender woman Donna Nierra – was killed, with her body found floating in a river in Caloocan City.

Donna reportedly had head wounds when found on Monday, September 28, at Barangay 176 sa North Caloocan.

When interviewed by ABS-CBN News, Donna’s father – Ricky – said Donna left home to be with friends last Sunday. She wasn’t seen since.

It was Donna’s friends who informed her family that her body was found in the river.

Donna’s family said they are not aware of anyone wanting to harm Donna, as she did not have enemies.

In a tweet, Bahaghari Kamaynilaan – an LGBTQIA group – stated that “it is time the State acknowledge(s) this is an emergency.”

Donna was 23, and the third among six children.

The Caloocan police is now investigating Donna’s death.
