Police in Citrus Heights may be closing in on their search for a transgender woman who is wanted for murder.

Police may be close to finding Alejandra Aguilera-Ortega.

Police say she is a transgender escort, accused of illegally injecting silicone into the buttocks of another transgender woman a year ago. 

That woman became sick and was taken to Mercy San Juan Hospital where she died a week later. 

Police say Ortega posted ads online,  under her nickname "Sexy Rachel," offering her escort services as recently as last month. 

Her family spoke to a local news station and say they don't think she is in the Sacramento area, and is on the run because she is scared. 

If anyone has any information on Ortega's whereabouts, you're asked to contact the Citrus Heights police department.
