Homophobic: 'Transsexual' woman drag from her home and beaten to death [video]

In what appears to be a trend or so in Brazil, another transsexual, 42-year-old Dandara dos Santos was beaten to death in Fortaleza, Ceara State, Brazil apparently for being transsexual. 
The footage of the lynching was released by the Police in an attempt to find and arrest the perpetrators.

Speaking in Portuguese, the individual filming the assault could be heard saying 'they will kill the faggot' (translated to English) and laughing.

Police Inspector Damasceno who is investigating the death said: 
'Six people have been identified and the video has helped with that. The footage was first circulated among LGBT groups, which helped that process.'
She is seen on the ground covered in blood and struggling to stand, begging for her life while crowds stand around and cheer, her attackers who are deaf to her pleas lift her into a wheelbarrow and take her behind a building where they killed her in cold blood.
'The police began circulating the clip and we arrived at the house of two of the people identified but they fled. The investigation is already well advanced and we are going after the killers.'
Dandara dos Santos was the fifth to be murdered last month. It has become a trend in Brazil to target transsexuals and transvestites and to curb that, the government of Ceara released a statement warning that attackers will be punished.
'The Government of Ceara hereby expresses its deepest condemnation of acts of violence and intolerance as what was practised against Dandara dos Santos, killed by brutal beating.The government of Ceará released a statement condemning the killing warning that attackers will be punished.'
They said:
'The Government of Ceara hereby expresses its deepest condemnation of acts of violence and intolerance as what was practiced against Dandara dos Santos, killed by brutal beating.'
'It should be informed that the entire structure of the State Public Security is mobilized for the investigation of the crime and will punish those responsible.'
'This government believes in and supports, through a human rights framework linked to the Office of the Governor and current public policies that pluralism, diversity and tolerance are fundamental values for democracy.'
'These are inalienable pillars of an inclusive and just society. The Special Coordinator of Public Policies for the State of Ceará LGBT has among its tasks the execution of service policies and affirmation of gender minorities, as well as the effective contribution to the debate on all issues relating to the LGBT population.'
'In line with the precepts of individual freedoms and human rights, we reaffirm our option for human life.'
