Transgender woman immolated in Fort Meyers

The homicide victim found burned behind a vehicle rental facility at 2807 Fowler Street on Thursday has been identified by a stepmother as a transgender woman.

Shannon Adams says Yazmin Shancez, 27, is the victim of a hate crime. No arrests have been made in what authorities call a homicide.

“I don’t know but it’s not fair. It shouldn’t have happened to him. He’s different but you know everybody’s deserves to live their life the way that they want,” said Adams, “He’s a young kid, he had his whole life ahead of him. It was just starting.”
