A transgender Chicago woman died after a fight the week of Oct. 1, the second such murder in the city in just over a month.
The 31-year-old-victim was stabbed to death after a fight at about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 3 in an abandoned apartment building on the 4500 block of W. Adams St., according to Chicago Police Department, whose report identifies the victim as male.
Chicago Sun-Times on Oct. 4 identified the individual as Ciara Minaj Carter Frazier.
According to a CPD spokesperson, Frazier was discovered in the rear yard of the building and was initially unresponsive before she died. The offender fled in a white-colored vehicle, and two weapons were located in the area of the incident.
No offenders in custody and Area North Detectives are still investigating.
Frazier is the 22nd known transgender individual murdered in the United States in 2018, according to HRC. Another transgender Chicagoan, Dejanay Stanton, died by homicide Aug. 30.
