Transgender Day Of Remembrance: Paying Tribute To 10 Victims of Violence

 


Shelley Hilliard, 19
Location: Detroit, Michigan
Died: October 23, 2011 
Hilliard’s death
was one of the most gruesome we can recall in recent history, especially considering how young she was: After she was strangled to death, Hilliard’s body was decapitated, dismembered and set on fire. Her mother could only identify Hilliard’s mutilated corpse by the tattoos on her arm.
