Arrest Made In January Lapuz Killing

I wrote back in October about the killing of our Canadian trans sister January Marie Lapuz who was found stabbed at her New Westminster, BC home on September 30 and later died at a local hospital. 

It's now being reported the New Westminster, BC police on December 5 arrested Charles Jameson “Jamie” Neel with the killing of our trans sister 

He has since been charged with second-degree murder and was scheduled to appear at New Westminster court on December 6.

Police investigators are still trying to ascertain the motive for Lapuz's killing, and since the case in now before the court system and the investigation is still active they have not released any further information to news outlets in the area.

Here's hoping that Neel is the person who did it, the justice system handles their business and puts him away for a long time.

Will keep y'all posted on this case.
