Number 15 -Rest in Power Jordan Cofer
Turns out that the 22 year old sibling of Dayton shooter Connor Betts was one of the nine victims in the August 4 attack by Betts at a popular club in the city's entertainment district The sibling was also the first to die in that terrorist attack that also wounded 27 people before Betts was killed by Dayton police.
That sibling, Jordan Cofer was being misgendered by family, Dayton police and the media to the point that Jordan's friends spoke out about it.
According to writer Katelyn Burns, Cofer was out to a group of friends, preferred he/him pronouns and self identified as trans masculine..
Cofer's murder also continued the pattern of trans people under age 30 being killed.
It is a pattern that needs to stop.
Rest in power, Jordan. Your friends who loved you will ensure that you're never forgotten, and you will always live in their hearts and memories.
