MIAMI – The local LGBTQ community is mourning a beloved transgender woman after officers found her dead inside her 19th-floor condo in Miami. The suspect was identified by detectives as a 27-year old man. He admitted that he had been using a knife and fork to attack her during a jealous rage fit.
Ygor was overcome with emotion when he arrived at Miami-Dade County’s courtroom on Wednesday. In the murder of Yunieski Cary Herrera (a Cuban dancer and performer who competed in beauty pageants over many years), he is being charged with second-degree.
“I started back in 2004 when I was asked to model for a local fashion show … in Los Angeles and I just got addicted,” she told a blogger in 2015, adding it had become her “passion in life.”
“Besides being strikingly beautiful, she was kind and she was good and she cared as much about others as she would about herself,” Griffith said, adding “She was a very special person for many people.”

During questioning, Arrudasouza told a detective that he was arguing with Herrera when she told him that “she had a better man” than him, according to the arrest report. According to police, Arrudasouza claimed that he went into the kitchen and grabbed the knife, fork and fork and then pushed Herrera off the bed and stabbed her while she was lying on the ground.
Arrudasouza “stabbed her multiple times until he realized what he had done,” an officer wrote in the police report, adding that during his confession he also said he “deserves the punishment that comes to him.”
Arrudasouza has a history of violence. According to Miami-Dade County records, he was charged with three counts of battery in January. His case is open, and he faces a trial on March 8.
According to Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Records, Arrudasouza is on an immigration hold and was released from jail under a felony bail when the crime occurred. He is currently being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center without bond.
