Transwoman who was beaten at Manhattan Sidewalk dies


 

Kathmandu (Pahichan) May 8 – A transgender woman who was found with a severe hear injury on a New York City sidewalk has died 0 days after the assault.

The 59-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was found on Seventh Avenue, by West 29th Street, in Manhattan on April 25. She was unconscious with a head trauma and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. She died Thursday, police said.

While police told the New York Daily News that they are still investigating whether or not a crime took place, police sources. No suspects have been identified, but police said her injuries were not from a fall or self-inflicted. An autopsy will be conducted to officially determine her cause of death.

Earlier this year, three transgender women of color were killed in one month in Louisiana.
