Florida authorities logged in the sixth violent trans-death of 2021, earlier this month. Alexus Braxton, 45, lost her life to a vicious attack at 10 p.m. on February 4 in her apartment at the Carmel, California Condominiums in Miami.

Livid and devastated by the loss, Braxon’s sister Neki urged the murderer to come out for the sake of closure. “Whoever did this, you need to come forward,” said Neki in a report on New York Post. “You hurting our family. What would the reason be for you to do such a crime and do such an act on a beautiful person?” she added.

Braxon’s family smelt something to be off when they stopped hearing from her. They alerted the police upon arriving at her apartment’s door. Upon an officer’s arrival, the door was forcibly unlocked from the outside, only to find Braxon’s corpse, as reported in NBC Miami.

“The family was left with no closure, and they're suffering tremendously because of the death and the manner in which our victim was murdered,” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Juan Segovia in a video posted on Twitter.

While there have been no developments in this regard, further probe into the incident is underway. Investigators are also on the lookout for a person who was captured on the surveillance camera, who might have some knowledge about the murder. The police have implored the public to get in touch if they chance upon anything relevant to the case. 

The past year has been horrific in terms of violent crimes against transgenders.

The police are imploring the public to get in touch and help them gather incisive details on the crime. The police are imploring the public to get in touch and help them gather incisive details on the crime. Miami-Dade Police Department
