DALLAS (CBSDFW.OM) – When Muhlaysia Booker, a transgender woman, was found shot to death less than a month after being beaten by attackers using homophobic slurs, her family feared it was a targeted killing.
“I pray that it wasn’t,” Booker’s father, Pierre Booker said. “I pray that it wasn’t.”
“I know for a fact it wasn’t a stranger,” Quanjasmine Baccus, Booker’s relative said. “It was someone who knew her.”
Now, Dallas police said since July of 2017 they’ve investigated four incidents where black transgender women were assaulted, killed or found dead. So far, no suspects have been named.
Last week, Booker was murdered.
A month before that, a transgender woman was stabbed and left for dead, but survived.
