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.
