LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Another trans woman was brutally murdered in Baltimore, Maryland. Mia Henderson’s body was found by police in an alley on July 16th. Baltimore police say there was sufficient trauma to believe the crime is a homicide. An autopsy is pending.
The Baltimore police do not know if this incident is related to the murder of trans woman Kandy Hall earlier this summer. Police are still looking for Hall’s murderer.
Police Commissioner Anthony Batts on WJZ: “I will not slow down. I will not allow us to not stay on top of these. We will push extremely hard.”
News reports indicate that the victim’s brother is NBA player Reggie Bullock of the Los Angeles Clippers.

I’m hoping the NBA-connection here brings transgender deaths, particularly those of trans women of color, expanded media attention.
