Video released of the murder of LA Transwoman Deshawnda Sanchez


Deshawnda Sanchez

21-year-old transgender woman Deshawnda Sanchez was pounding at the front door to a house on South Wilton Place and West 62nd Street early Wednesday morning when police say a man exited his car and killed her.
The police are investigating this as a robbery-murder but her family believe this was a hate crime. They misgender her during the video, but considering the pain that they were feeling that’s understandable.


Camera four

The neighbours camera 4 shows a shadow of a figure. This is the person police believe murdered her.

On June 12, the body of Zoraida “Ale” Reyes, 28, was found in the parking lot of an Anaheim Dairy Queen. Reyes was a transgender activist, and her death raised concerns that she was targeted because of her identity. About four months later, on Oct. 2, Aniya Knee Parker, 47, was fatally shot in East Hollywood about 3 a.m. after a struggle over her purse.

Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD’s Criminal Gang Homicide Division at (213) 485-4341.
