Transgender Boise Woman Murdered in Portland
I will never understand how someone purposefully takes the life of another human being. This young woman from Boise was murdered on Monday. Was it a hate crime?
According to police in Portland, 28-year-old Gigi Pierce was not killed for being transgender. They can't find any signs that point to that. Nevertheless, she was shot and killed by 33-year-old Sophia Alder on Monday night during an argument.
When officials arrived on scene Gigi was found laying on the sidewalk, but rendering first aid was not enough and she passed away from the gunshot wound.
Alder remained on the scene and has now been arrested in Gigi's murder. According to KTVB the case will be presented to a grand jury.
Please keep your Gigi's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers and they mourn the loss of this beautiful soul taken far too soon. 28-years-old is definitely too young to die.
