Death: The body of a transgender woman was discovered in East Chatham five days after she was reported missing – Five days after her family reported her missing, a transgender woman’s body was discovered dumped in a waste bin in East Chatham.
“It’s horrible that someone beat her to death and threw her in the trash like garbage,” Shameika Thomas, her sister, said.
“Once the garbage people pulled it up and the garbage flipped over, and everything fell out,” said a neighbor, who did not want to be identified.
According to abc7chicago.com, Tatiana Labelle was her name, according to her family. “Whether my sister was transsexual or not, I loved her, and I want justice for myself and my family,” Thomas added.
The 33-year-old was battered to death, according to investigators, and her body was discovered in an alley on South Ingleside Avenue near 84th Street on Friday afternoon. She had been reported missing for the previous five days. Obituary not available at the moment.
