“I know she wouldn’t want us to be all sad and crying. But it’s like, what can we do?” she says. “And it’s the third time this has happened in the area. Nothing ever gets done about it, and the cases never get solved. Any leads, they sweep it under the rug.”

Jaliyah adds: “Trans lives matter. They keep saying black lives matter. Trans lives also matter.”

Jaliyah says she suspects her friend was killed by another trans woman.

The medical examiner says the 28-year-old suffered multiple stab and incise wounds.
