Tyra Trent, 25, was a trans sex worker found strangled to death in the basement of an empty apartment building in Baltimore. She had been reported missing two weeks prior, although sources say it wasn’t unusual for her to spend a few days at a time away from her mother’s home. Born Anthony Trent, Tyra was in the process of legally changing her name and getting her GED.
