New Jersey trans woman dies from stab wounds

eyrickaMORGANTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A trans woman found stabbed at her home by the New Brunswick, New Jersey police died from her injuries at a hospital last Tuesday.

The police later arrested a roommate, Devonte Scott, and charged him with murder. His bail has been set at $1 million dollars.

While all news accounts are using her male name, however a reliable social media source did state the victim was transgender. I did some checking elsewhere and all information strongly indicates that trans woman Eyricka Morgan, approximately 26, is indeed the victim.

Morgan was formerly a student at Rutgers and was involved with the North Jersey Community Research initiative.

No further information is available.

Police ask anyone with information to call Det. Kenneth Abode of New Brunswick Police at (732) 745-5200 or Investigator Jose Rodriguez of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3300.
