  On the night of November 1, 2021, a 38-year-old transwoman by the name of A.G. was murdered in a Thai massage salon in Tbilisi, Georgia. 

The suspect stabbed her in her throat after she refused to provide services not offered by the business.

Employees of the center recall the incident in detail. They recount that a confrontation took place between the massage specialist and the customer after the customer requested additional services in addition to the massage, which he was refused.

 "Everything happened very quickly, someone knocked, the girl opened it, then a man stabbed her in the throat. We did not know this man before, we had not seen him. It happened, we know nothing more. The dead girl had no problem with anyone, she was a very good person." - said one of the employees of the center.
