Is This The Man That Stabbed Trans Woman Chrissie Bates To Death?

Police have arrested a suspect in the slaying of 45-year-old trans woman Chrissie Bates (spelled in some news reports as Krissy), who was stabbed to death in her downtown Minneapolis apartment on January 11.

Arnold Darwin Waukazo, 40, was picked up yesterday on murder charges, but thus far police haven’t announced a possible motive. It’s unclear whether Bates’ being trans was a factor or whether the fact that her phone number was found on an escort-listings website is relevant.

OutFront Minnesota has organized a vigil tomorrow outside the Minneapolis Community and Technical College library.

      @Raphael:

      Yeah, god forbid a person gets stabbed to death by someone who may *shock* ugly.

      Can we any more superficial about this? A person’s life was violently ended here. You know, in real life, its not like in Grand Theft Auto were you can re-spawn after a bloodbath.

      “Yeah, god forbid a person gets stabbed to death by someone who may *shock* ugly.”

      Oh wow, did you just say it’s okay to stab someone if you’re ugly? You may want to re-evaluate your idea of how sarcasm works :/
