Seems like as fast as I find out and get the details about one of my trans siblings being murdered, I’m having to sit down and write about another one.
We go back to Kansas City, MO for our latest trans murder.
She is 30 year old Brianna ‘BB’ Hill. She was shot at 11:30 AM CDT on Monday October 14 near 43rd St and Hardesty Avenue in eastern Kansas City. She died at the scene before police arrived and took the shooter into custody.
Hill is the third trans woman to die in Kansas City this year, the 21st African American trans woman, and the 22nd in the US in 2019.
The man who stands accused of shooting Hill waited for police to arrive, and and KCPD investigations are currently looking into the motive for this crime.
As of yet no word on whether any memorial service or vigils are being held there. I’ll pass that info along as I receive it.
Rest in power and peace, Brianna. May justice be served in your case as well.
