Transgender woman killed, found shot, dragged, say Ark. police
The fact that the murdered transgender woman was dragged by a car indicates some animosity, which means this could be a hate crime.
Police are searching for clues in the death of a transgender woman whose body appeared to have been shot and dragged under a car Tuesday.
The body of Marcal Camero Tye, 25, of Forrest City, was found by police a little after 5am Tuesday on Highway 334 in east-central Arkansas, reported CBS affiliate WREG.
Sheriff Bobby May told the station, “We’re going to be, of course, waiting for the lab results, the pathology reports, but it appeared to be that he did have a head wound and also that he had been drug [sic] by a car.”
