TransLatina woman Chyna Carrillo Murdered in Pennsylvania




Twenty-five-year-old Transgender woman Chyna Carrillo was beaten to death Thursday in western Pa

Officers Black and Long, Public information officers for the Butler State police barracks identified victim as a transgender woman in their first reports. 

Following that they tweeted a statement deadnaming her despite knowing that she is transgender.

Multiple messages left for Officer Black have not been returned.
We spoke with Dana Rasmussen, treasurer and board member for TransFamily of NWPS, a support group created to serve the transgender community of Northwestern PA.

Dana was horrified that her murder happened so close and equally upset that the state police knew that the victim was transgender yet choose to deadname her.

Knowing that the victim was originally from the Springfield Arkansas area Dana contacted Lisa Stewart President of the Local Transgender Equality Network. Stewart confirmed with 
Rasmussen that her name was Chyna Carrillo and that she was a transgender woman. 

Her aunt Mayra Carrillo asked if we could include her 21st birthday picture.
Her loving aunt asked that we tell everyone that "She was so full of love and light."

Chyna Carrillo identifies on Facebook bio as a "Proud Preop TransLatina! Outspoken, Unapologetic, Lethal Mind and Killer Looks

And gorgeous. Chyna Carrillo Instagram pictures clearly show a proud TransLatina woman.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Dana 
Rasmussen for her dedication and proficient detective work. Thank you Dana. We can now #SayHerName 

R.I.P. 
Chyna Carrillo.
