Brayla Stone, Black Trans Teen, Killed in Apparent Hit
Local police in Arkansas are treating the death of a 17-year-old transgender Black woman as a homicide. The body of Brayla Stone was found in a car on a walking path in the Little Rock suburb of Sherwood last Thursday, and a person on social media later claimed he was paid five thousand dollars to kill her. Stone is the eighth trans person violently killed in the last seven days.
“Brayla Stone is the 8th transgender person killed in the last seven days,” David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, said in a statement. “Brayla Stone was seventeen years young when someone murdered her because we live in a society where it is not yet explicit that when we say BlackLivesMatter we mean all Black lives, which includes Black trans women and girls.”
