In Memoriam: 2011's Transgender Murder Victims
Edited on Fri Nov-18-11 02:35 PM by William769

Krissy Bates

Bates, 45, was strangled and stabbed in her Minneapolis apartment in January. Her boyfriend, Arnold Darwin Waukazo, is the prime suspect; the trial against him began this month. Bates recently moved from Kentucky to Minneapolis to start a new life.




Tyra Trent

After she went missing for two weeks, Trent's body was discovered in a vacant Baltimore home in late February. The 25-year-old was asphyxiated.



Marcal Camero Tye

Even though Tye was shot in the head in March and possibly dragged behind a vehicle by a rope or chain, Arkansas sheriff Bobby May told the press that he didn't think the 25-year-old's murder was a hate crime.



Miss Nate Nate

Nathan Eugene Davis, or Miss Nate Nate as she liked to be called, was Houston's latest transgender murder victim; her body was found behind an apartment building's dumpster in June.



Lashai Mclean

Violence against transgender women in Washington, D.C., appeared to spike this year 23-year-old Mclean was one of the city's victims. Mclean died from a gunshot wound she suffered in Northeast D.C. in the early hours of July 20. The police have little information on the two men suspected in her death.



Camila Guzman

In August, Guzman was murdered by her boyfriend, who confessed to her murder shortly after she was found stabbed to death in her Harlem apartment. Guzman, 38, came to Chile a decade ago to live openly as a transgender woman.



Gaurav Gopalan

Though Gopalan identified as gay, the 35-year-old was likely murdered for his gender expression Gopalan was beaten to death in Washington, D.C., in September and he was wearing makeup and women's clothing at the time of his death.



Shelly Hilliard

There was scant media attention when the body of a young transgender woman was found dumped in Detroit. Because of that, it took weeks for anyone to identify the murder victim as Shelly Hilliard, a 19-year-old transgender woman missing for weeks.

This is only eight of the approximately 221 transgender people murdered this year, as compiled by Ethan St. Pierre for transgenderdor.org.
