Sativa Transue, 26 Murdered In Mexico

26-Year-Old American Woman Murdered By Boyfriend In Cancun Hotel Room

A 26-year-old American woman was found dead in her Cancun, Mexico hotel room last week after traveling to Mexico with her boyfriend on Thanksgiving.

Sativa Transue, 26, told family and friends that her boyfriend Taylor Allen, 31, injured her on the night of Nov. 26 to the point that she needed stitches, according to a GoFundMe page.

The following morning, the U.S. Consulate called the family to let them know Transue was dead, Seattle’s KING reported. Transue lived with Allen in the Seattle suburb of Milton.

Local police in Mexico arrested Allen and charged him with killing Transue. She had been beaten to death, Transue’s sister Mykayla Bolieu told Seattle’s KIRO.

Sativa Transue was found dead Nov. 27, according to Bolieu.

Bolieu said Allen and Transue had been dating for three years, but the family suspected something was wrong after just six months and wanted Transue to end the relationship, according to the outlet.

“We were worried and we had been telling her to come home,” Bolieu told Spokane CBS affiliate KREM. Transue is originally from Spokane and her family still lives there.

“This was so unexpected. She was fine when I went to sleep Friday, and wasn’t when I woke up Saturday. We want answers and justice for Sativa as well as for everyone who knew her. We need help with the costs of bringing her body and belongings back to the United States so she can get the peace she deserves,” Bolieu wrote.

“If anyone is struggling with domestic violence please reach out to your loved ones and let them know,” Bolieu wrote on the GoFundMe. “Don’t wait until it’s too late.”
