Episode 44 Kimberly Avila
32 year old Kimberly Avila vanished in Brownsville, TX in the early morning hours of May 13, 2017.
Kimberly was born Ramiro Avila, Jr, and as a transgender woman, was no stranger to mistreatement at the hands of others. As a sex worker, the danger she faced was only compounded. Did the fact Kim was transgender, or that she worked as a sex worker factor in to her disappearance, or are those details simply red herrings? 5 years after she vanished, it seems that we are no closer to finding out what happened to her, and her family is desperate for answers. There have been no confirmed sightings of Kim since she vanished despite being well-known in the local LGBTQ community, and her bank account and social security card have not been used.
Kim's sister Ivon discusses Kim's case in this episode.
At the time of her disappearance, Kim was described as being 5'8-6'0, 200-220 pounds, and Hispanic with brown hair & eyes; she was last seen wearing a dressy black short-sleeved blouse, a black skirt, black fishnet stockings, black stiletto heels, a black wig, and gray contact lenses. There is a $10,000 reward in this case.
