Number 24- Rest in Power Yahira Nesby
Her name is Yahira Nesby.
Nesby was declared dead at the scene.
That person was taken in for questioning, but at this time Nesby's murder is still being investigated by NYPD. The male as of yet has not been considered as a person of interest in this ongoing investigation,.but was called her boyfriend in a NY Daily News story.
She is now the 24th trans woman we have lost to violence this year, and the 22nd Black trans woman in 2019.
As of yet haven't heard about any vigils since this is still a developing story, but as soon as I hear of one or am alerted, I'll pass that info along.
Rest in power and peace Yahira,
