Rest In Peace, Mercedes

Mercedes WilliamsonIt’s my sad duty to inform you TransGriot readers about the murder of another US trans woman.

According to the Advocate, 17 year old Mercedes Williamson’s body was found May 30 by George County Alabama police.

Her alleged killer, 28 year old Josh Brandon Vallum, was charged with Williamson’s murder several days after police recovered the teen’s body.

He is reportedly a longtime member of the Latin Kings gang, and confessed to his father on June 1 that he’d killed someone.   Bobby Vallum reported the conversation to the police, who found Williamson’s partially decomposed body hidden under debris on the property around  9 AM on June 2.

Mercedes Williamson’s life was sadly ended before she even had a chance to live it.   That’s what pisses me off about these murders of our trans kids.   I hope and pray justice is served in this case.

rest in power and peace, Mercedes.
