One more trans woman killed in the USA


Phylicia Mitchell was shot dead outside of her home in Cleveland, Ohio last week.  Her body was found in her own living-room with multiple wounds in her chest. She was taken to hospital but was later pronounced dead. Police have not yet determined a suspect or a motive for the shooting. She was 45 and lived with male partner named Shane who is devastated about the loss. “Everyone loved her,” he told “I miss her tremendously. That’s my soulmate. We went everywhere together. We did everything together.” They were not officially married but she took his last name. Over the time that they knew each other, Shane had helped Phylicia get out of sex work. He said: “She was a good person, even though she had a drug problem, she’s a good person. She got mixed up with the wrong people. We should have never started doing drugs together. We’d have both had an even better life than we already did.”
