Seconds after Kenton Haggard leaned over in conversation a knife-wielding hand is seen striking out slicing the victims throat.

Transgender woman Kenton Haggard, 66, was brutally murdered in central Fresno Thursday around 2:00 am. Ms. Haggard can be seen crossing the street and being hailed by a tan SUV. When she leaned over in conversation a knife struck out and cut her throat.

This was a premeditated hate crime says Karen Adell Scot, founder of TransCare. Scot told KMPF, “It was premeditated, and it was thought out. They had the knife ready. They baited the person to the vehicle and they followed through with tremendous precision on the strike.

The victim Ms. Kenton Haggard identifies on facebook as male but also as a T Girl. Ms.Haggard presented as female in the video so female pronouns have been used.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call the Fresno Police Department at 559-621-2449Call: 559-621-2449.

Trigger Warning. The video replays the victims murder numerous times.

    The more fragmented we become; the more distant we are from each other and fear rules. Even in our trans community we are separate. Pre-op. post-op and non-op are secular divisions when we are all just trans and just people. I certainly have no answer for this, just that I pray for resolve. Separate, divide and conquer. May God bless y’all and keep you. Jane
