An Aug. 12 argument at a Waxahachie home left trans person Gwynevere River Song, 26, dead and a second person injured, according to a report in the Waxahachie Daily Light.
Dallas Voice has contacted the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the murder, for information and we will update this post as information becomes available.
Gwynevere identified as ‘femandrogyne” and preferred gender-neutral “they” pronouns, according to reports online, including this one at PGHLesbian.com. Some reports indicate the injured person, who was taken to the hospital, was an adult male, but Dallas Voice has not yet been able to confirm the identity of that person nor their relationship with Gwynevere.
According to Trans Pride Initiative President Nell Gaither, Song’s mother was very supportive of her child. The mother has scheduled a memorial service for Aug. 21; details will follow.
