THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A transgender organization in Puerto Rico reports the death of Malena Suarez who lived in Carolina, a suburb of San Juan. Transexuales y Transgéneros en Marcha (TTM) said that Suarez was a volunteer with the organization. She was found stabbed to death in her home when her friends became concerned of her whereabouts.

Sophia Isabel Marrero Cruz, TTM’s spokeperson: “The transgender community in Puerto Rico is extremely terrorized by this violence, we fear for our lives, and our government is not taking action to protect us.”

(I was unable to find any photos of Malena Suarez.)

In Dallas, Texas, apparently over a week ago, Janette Tovar was murdered by her domestic partner, Jonathan Stuart Kenney, in an apparent domestic dispute at their residence. Police found Tovar unresponsive at the scene following a 911 call.. An autopsy revealed that Tovar died from blunt force trauma to the head and the death ruled a homicide.  Kenney has since been arrested.

A manager living below them stated that the couple was always fighting. Police say Kenney slammed Tovar’s head onto concrete just prior to arriving home. They also stated that Kenney admitted to assaulting her.

Stay tuned.
