Transgender Woman Discovered Burnt To Death Behind A Garbage Tank

Police report calls it homicide and not a hate crime.

A 31 year old transgender woman has been found burned to death at Ford Myers, Florida and police are yet to find out what led to her death.

The death of Yaz'min Shancez has been described by Fort Myers authorities as homicide but not as a hate crime.

Police Lieutenant Jay Rodiguez tells Naples News that there are no indication if she was been killed because she was a transgender but "we are investigating as we would any other homicide."

Police reports say Shancez' dead body was discovered behind a garbage container on a dead end, private road in an industrial part of Fort Myers.

Her family has placed flowers and balloons at the crime scene.
