These posts are coming so fast an furiously these days it’s taking me time to just get caught up writing them.
We head back to the Washington DC area, specifically the same Fairmount Heights, MD suburb where Ashanti Carmon was killed to report on the latest trans woman taken from us way too soon.
23 year old Washington DC resident Zoe Spears was found shot to death from a gunshot wound just after midnight EDT in June 13. Spears was declared dead at the scene by first responders, and her body was found less than half a mile from where Carmon’s was found.
Spears is now the tenth American trans woman we have lost to anti-trans violence. All the known American trans deaths so far in 2019 have been African American. She is also the seventh under age 30 to die this year.
No word yet if there is a person of interest in this case.
As of yet no word concerning a memorial service or funeral planned, and I will pass that info along when I receive it.
Rest in power and peace, Zoe..
