Second Transgender Woman Found Dead In Dallas Within One Week

A transgender woman has been found dead in Dallas for the second time in just one week.

A kayaker spotted the body of a black transgender woman floating in White Rock Creek Saturday night. The body was “in a severe state of decomposition,” police said. She was wearing a black shirt and black scrub pants, with no tattoos or distinct markings. 

It’s unclear how the woman died, and she has not been identified. Investigators have ruled the death unexplained pending further tests from the medical examiner’s office. 

Police are asking for information in identifying her and said anonymous tips can be sent through the iWatch Dallas app: http://dallas.iwatch911.us/

The gruesome discovery came just days after another transgender woman was found murdered in the area.

Police said Carla Patricia Flores-Pavon, 26 (below), was found unconscious in her apartment last Wednesday, and she was pronounced dead at a hospital. Police said she was strangled to death. Witnesses told police they

L’Oréal Drops 1st Transgender Model Days After Hiring Her Over FB Post Arguing ‘All White People Are Racist’

Beauty company L’Oréal Paris hired trans model Munroe Bergdorf to appear in its YoursTruly True Match ad campaign—only to drop her a few days later after Daily Mail published a story about a post of hers on Facebook that criticized the “racial violence of… ALL white people.”

The post, which has since been deleted, reportedly said:

“Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of color… Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggression to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this shit. Come see me when you realise that racism isn’t learned, it’s inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege. Once white people begin to

Anatomy Of A Love Triangle: Husband Kills Wife For Insurance Money And His Transgender Lover

February 23, 1991. Arizona businessman Dan Willoughby and his family were on vacation in Las Conchas, Mexico. Dan’s wife Trish stayed behind to take a nap, according to Snapped on Oxygen, while Dan and the kids spent the afternoon touring the coastal community. When Dan and his three children came back to the vacation home, the kids found their 43-year-old mom with her skull crushed and a butter knife sticking out of one of the fractures. She had been beaten and stabbed, and she was grasping for life. Not long after, she was dead.

Dan told Mexican police that over $400 in cash and two rings were missing from the scene. The crime scene appeared to be a robbery gone bad. This murder is the subject of this week’s Martinis  Murder podcast. 

The child of Mexican farm laborers, Yesenia Patino was 6 years old when her family immigrated to the

Transgender Worker Sues McDonald’s, Alleging Horrific … – Oxygen

A trans woman is suing a Michigan McDonald’s restaurant after she allegedly received extreme discrimination by her managers while she was employed there, which she said included the managers groping her genitals and forcing her to use a toilet in a broom closet.

La’Ray Reed, 25, worked at a McDonald’s in Redford, Michigan for six months beginning in April 2015, BuzzFeed reported. Reed filed the lawsuit against McDonald’s and Jon Campbell, the owner of the franchise where she was employed, last month.

The lawsuit, which BuzzFeed published in its entirety, alleges that shortly after Reed was hired by the franchise, a coworker asked her if she was “a top or bottom” and “a boy or girl.” Reed told the coworker that these comments were offensive, but reportedly continued to hear employees wondering about the size of her genitals and talking about having sex with her.

At one point, Reed claimed, her
