Dantjier Powell Sought In Domonique Newburn Killing

Domonique Newburn, 31, aspired to be a reality TV star and the first transgender performer with a hit song on iTunes.Domonique Newburn's alleged killer is still out there on the run and it's only a matter of time before he is caught and hopefully brought to justice. 

We have a name for the person accused of killing her back on August 20, and it's 18 year old Dantjier Powell of San Bernadino, CA. 

Interestingly enough Powell dated the 31 year old Newburn for several years and her car was found in a park in that city.

Powell's father went on KTLA-TV recently to plead with his son to surrender and face the judicial music for his alleged crime. 

Powell according to a NY Daily News article is purported to be traveling with Jamie Nicole Cotton, 25, and may be trying to escape via bus.

Dantjier Powell, 18, is wanted in the death of transgender aspiring reality TV star Domonique Newburn.The trans community hopes he listens to his father and stops running so justice can hopefully be served in this case.  It's just a matter of time before Powell is spotted, caught by the police wherever that happens and extradited back to California when they do. 

He is alleged to have done the crime, and now its time for him to face justice for being the person alleged to have violently taken Domonique's life.

And yeah, trans community, no trans panic defense allowed in California.

It also goes without saying that I'm sick of my transsisters being killed with little or no legal repercussions for the persons who did the horrific deed.
