Trans Woman Tiara Lashaytheboss Richmond Murdered in Chicago

Submitted by on Thursday, 23 February 2017No Comment

A transgender woman of color has been shot to death on Chicago’s south side, the fourth reported murder of a trans person this year.

Tiara Lashaytheboss Richmond, 24, died Tuesday morning, Windy City Times reports. She was shot in the chest, arm, and hand.

Richmond was shot shortly after 6 a.m. by a person she was riding with in a vehicle, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which misgendered her in its report. The suspect fled in the vehicle, and police found Richmond lying on the ground when they arrived. She was pronounced dead about 7 a.m. at a nearby hospital.

By this time last year, six murders of transgender people had been reported in the U.S. It turned out to be the deadliest year on record, with 27 homicides of trans Americans reported. Most of them were women of color.

The actual number in any given year is undoubtedly much higher, as many victims are misgendered by media or police, or their deaths not reported at all. (via Advocate)
