Just when we get the news that Penny Proud is being buried in New Orleans, and the perps in the California trans murder cases of Michelle Payne and Taja DeJesus cases have been arrested or found dead, now comes word of another young Ohio trans woman who has been murdered.
The perpetrator who murdered 22 year old Bri Golec of Akron, OH is already in custody.
It is Bri’s father, 52 year old Kevin Golec who stabbed his trans daughter to death after an argument on Friday night in the family’s home.
Kevin Golec has been charged with murder and domestic violence and is being held in the Summit County Jail.
It is the old parental threat of ‘I brought you into this world, and I can take you out’ becoming all too horribly real and resulting in the death of another trans woman.
Bri Golec is the sixth this year and we’re barely one and a half months into 2015. And as usual, the trans victim is being misgendered in the media.
The end result of this tragedy is we have another trans woman who won’t live to see her 30th birthday. It’s even sadder to observe that it was her own father who killed her.
And once again we have another trans woman whose potential contributions to our world and society will be lost to us, and is being buried on February 20 far too soon..
Rest in power, Bri
