According to reports, Sabrina started dating 29-year-old Antonella Marchant, her cellmate at San Miguel jail, while she was incarcerated.
Antonella, a member of the notorious Los Marchant gang, was given a 15-year jail term after her capture in 2021.
Antonella Marchant’s father is also serving time in prison
According to reports in the Chilean media, the Los Marchant gang was founded in 2012 after Antonella, the leader Francisco Marchant’s daughter, was arrested on drug trafficking charges when it was discovered that she was bringing marijuana from Argentina to Santiago for sale.
Like his daughter Antonella, Los Marchant narco founder Francisco is now incarcerated.

May 2021 marked the start of her TikTok postings. Both Katrina Gusman and Juakina Gusman, the latter of which seemed to be a reference to infamous Mexican cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, were the identities Sabrina posted under.
The TikTok celebrity has also gone by the moniker “La Ina” and has been labeled “The TikTok Narco Queen” in reference to her involvement in drug usage among Chilean gangs.
Sabrina was detained at the beginning of the year on accusations of providing, distributing, and trafficking cannabis, cocaine, MDMA, and magic mushrooms, together with her two brothers.
Sabrina posted dances and videos of herself talking to the camera on TikTok to chronicle her time spent behind bars.

According to reports, Sabrina was shot and killed in her automobile in Padre Hurtado, a neighborhood of Santiago, Chile, by at least two hitmen.
Sabrina is seen laying in the middle of the road in the terrifying video that a witness captured after being shot by a man wearing a mask.
The horrifying footage then shows Sabrina, who has already been injured, trying to get up as a gunman comes and opens fire on her. After that, the crooks fled the scene in Sabrina’s automobile, which was subsequently discovered to have wrecked.
According to reports, Sabrina was shot at least eight times, and medical staff at the hospital were unable to save her life. According to reports, she was on parole when the terrifying incident occurred.
The investigators speculate that a rival drug gang may have killed her as a way to even the score.
The investigation into Sabrina’s murder is still ongoing, and the masked shooters are still at large.
