A 26 year old Black trans woman was shot to death in her Miami home on Monday, October 23, 2023.
Loved ones are demanding justice after a transgender woman was murdered at her own home in front of her grandmother in northwest Miami-Dade.
London Price, 26, was killed Monday afternoon at the home in the 2900 block of Northwest 93rd Street.
Family members said Price was first pistol-whipped in front of her grandmother and then shot to death during an argument.
Friends and family, however, say they know who killed London Price and that person can be seen on surveillance video moments after the fatal shooting.
The subject is seen running from the crime scene not far from the crime scene, an apartment at Northwest 93rd Street, with a gun in his hand.
Police have not identified a suspect, but London’s family is circulating their information online.
Born in New Orleans, London graduated from South Terrebone High School and then relocated to Miami, Florida. She likes jewelry and music. London shared photographs from a recent trip to Walt Disney World.
Her aunt Nedra Allen spoke with media about London’s transition. “She got her name changed, passport, went to the court and got everything done the right way,” said Allen about Price’s transition. Family is furious that law enforcement and media are misgendering London.
No word yet on final arrangements, but London’s Facebook profile is filling up with tributes. She was clearly much loved.
Thus, London is the 35th trans or gender nonconforming person whose violent death has been reported in 2023. She is the 28th trans woman on this list and the 19th Black trans person. A trans person has been reported to be killed in the US every 8.4 days in 2023. Last year, we reported on the deaths of 40 people. “Reported” is an important distinction to make as we know there are more folx whose deaths remain unacknowledged. Indeed we have included an unidentified people whose remains were discovered this year on our list.
Rest in power, London. You embraced life with enthusiasm and honesty about your identity. You deserved the opportunity to live many long years filled with happiness and joy. You deserved to be safe in your own home. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is crucial that we understand the unique dynamics of interpersonal violence in trans and queer relationships and ensure systems are competent. Thank you for living your truth.
May your memory be a revolution.
