The cause of death is unknown but the body was found in a pool of blood with a 5 gallon gas tank beside her head. Because of the state of the room it is presumed that a fight took place. A used condom was also found and a pornographic film was playing on the TV.
Hundreds of fellow sex workers showed up in tears and anger and demanded to see her body, which the authorities agreed to.
