Verifiable sources are slim regarding the recent death of a trans woman in Detroit. However, Autostraddle is reporting that Amber Monroe was found shot to death. The source states trans rights advocate Cherno Biko is talking with Monroe’s friends and other people in Detroit. At this point, this is all that can be confirmed.
UPDATE-2 — As of Oct. 27, 2015, police are still looking for a suspect.
Although there are “press releases” and postings on social media, in particular, Instagram, however, none of these provided a source and/or link. Indeed, the website of the LGBT organization in Michigan that supposedly distributed this “press release” made no mention of a trans murder in Detroit, nor did they make note of this death on their social media pages.
Proper press releases contains contact names and other means to verify the information contained within it.
