R.I.P. Angie Zapata
Zapata was 18 when she met Allen Ray Andrade (age 32 at the time) (...). According to Andrade, the two met on July 15th, 2008, and spent nearly three days together, during which they had a sexual encounter. Prosecutors state that Andrade later discovered that Zapata was transgender and subsequently began beating her -- first with his fists and then with a fire extinguisher -- until she was dead. In the arrest affidavit, Andrade said he thought he had "killed it" before leaving in Zapata's car with the murder weapon and other incriminating evidence.
In a historic decision, Allen Andrade has been convicted of first-degree murder and a hate crime for his killing of 18-year-old transgender woman Angela Zapata.
