Suspect surrenders to police for the murder of Transwoman Tiffany Edwards

Quamar Edwards wanted for the murder of Transwoman Tiffany Edwards, turns himself in to police. The suspect’s uncle told WLWT:

“MY NEPHEW AIN’T ON NO HATE STUFF. DON’T MAKE IT KIND OF SEEN LIKE A MONSTER OR A VILLAIN.” QUAMAR’S UNCLE SAYS TIFFANY ASKED HIS NEFF KNEW FOR A RIDE AND SOMEHOW THINGS ESCALATED FROM THERE.

 “APPARENTLY HE FOUND OUT THE BOY WAS GAY BECAUSE HE TRIED TO HIT ON HIM AND ALL OTHER KIND OF STUFF. AND I TOLD YOU MY NEPHEW GOT AN ATTITUDE ABOUT THAT NOW. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT, BUT THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH BECAUSE THE GUY WAS GAY.”

WLWT and most Ohio media outlets identifies Tiffany as a man using her birth name. WLWT s does its best to present a man who committed a transpanic murder as the victim. If the murder did go down like how his uncle says it did, he was motivated by transpanic.. California’s Assembly just voted for legislation outlawing that defense. AB-2501 is expected to pass the Senate and become law this year.

The investigation remains ongoing, and anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department Criminal Investigation Section at (513) 352-3042.
