23-year-old trans woman 'burned beyond recognition'

A 23-year-old South Florida trans woman, Bee Love Slater, became the 18th trans woman to die in the U.S. this year when police found her body “burned beyond recognition” in her car — just days before her 24th birthday.

The murder occurred last Sunday night. It took cops two days to finally identify her charred remains. They have no suspect or motive. No arrests have been made.

WINK News reports, “Although detectives are still investigating what the motives may be, Love’s best friend said he believes the she was targeted because she was transgender.”

4. It really really is. One looks at all of the horrific events in the US and it can only be concluded

it's a very very sick country, possibly getting even worse.

8. OMG!

I never heard of these horrors until the reign of Taliban trump. Was I just not paying attention? Maybe there were one or two, but not like it is now.

10. Taliban Trump is as good a dig as Moscow Mitch.

Since we haven't heard of these attacks, you can blame the media for our not knowing. They're still reporting celebrity fluff and water-skiing squirrels. Also, the Royal weddings and babies are used as a distraction.

12. I think both are true. A) Many incidents happened, but were not reported beyond local news...

and B) there is an acceleration of incidents as there becomes a toxic subculture that feels empowered.

It is horrific.

15. OMG. What is wrong with these hateful ppl. If you don't want to be around trans folks, don't go

RIP Ms Slater, RIP.
