Raina Aliev, formerly Adam, was dismembered in Moscow after marrying a man known as Viktor, in Russia.
Just days earlier her father – who disowned Raina – issued a chilling warning to his daughter, saying: "Let him be killed, I don't want to see him. Bring him here and kill him in front of my eyes."
Raina had told Russian police she had received death threats after transitioning to a woman.
It is unclear where the 25-year-old was killed but her body was so badly “cut up” that those who knew Raina said she was unrecognisable.
Horrible tragedy. Raina was born a man and realised that he wanted to be a woman yet for becoming a transgender woman she was murdered. Just so tragic and awful.
