A transgender woman was stabbed repeatedly and dumped into a pond tied to a block of concrete in Cleveland, Ohio.
Only known by her birth given name, Carl Acoff, police announced yesterday they had identified her body after she went missing a month earlier on 27 March.
The 20-year-old was found three weeks later naked from the waist down with multiple wounds.
The man who found her initially believed the body was a mannequin, and contacted police who checked their missing persons list.
In the past, Acoff had clashed with police and the courts over her wish to be treated as a woman.
In January 2012, a judge found her guilty of possessing dangerous drugs after Acoff pleaded no contest.
These drugs included hormones used to boost estrogen in women. She was fined $1000 and sentenced to 100 days in jail.
There are no words.
What in the fucking fuck. Let’s hope that this gets a proper investigation and isn’t over-looked because it’s a transgender minority who’s been murdered. The fact this has gotten any attention at all is promising. Let’s go, Cleveland cops.
