There was a vigil last evening for Annabel Montoya, the East Los Angeles transgender teen who was intentionally run down by a vehicle in Monterey Park on around 2:30 am on Saturday April 2. Police have said that Annabel may have been beaten before being run down.
The 16-year-old Annabel is currently in a medically induced coma in the ICU at County-USC Medical Center.
I hope to God that she’s able to pull through and come forth and let us know what really happened.
--Fernando Velarde, Annabel's uncle
People at the vigil chanted,
No more murder, no more hate!
Many attendees were members of the TransLatin@ Coalition.
