    Sorry for the double dismembered in the thread title.

    They have arrested a man.

    A 20 year old called because of bloody sheets and tarps at the house. This is a male that was dismembered.

    And the wife of the murderer (and she may be charged later as an accomplice--not sure?) was okay with her hubby bringing people home to have sex and share drugs.

    Wow!


    Sick.


    And the son lived there in the house too.

    Honey, I just read more. The girlfriend/wife dimed him out. Could you imagine?

    The victim has not been identified. My apologies as well for saying this was a man. The woman was transgender and supposedly Sargeant flipped when he found out.

    RIP Miss. I am sorry some maniac murdered you.

    Thank you Philly! I was just coming over here to ask for help in this case. The sex worker group I belong to (yes, we have groups for betterment) is needing helping with this. So far no one can place who this might be and that's alarming.

    Astro Kitty, the media is only namng the victim by her birth name. That is Mark Williams. Nothing else at all including age or exactly where she is from.

    I'll be talking with someone who has ties to our GLBT community here later tonight and will ask. Sadly in this case and the area and the rampant drug trade this poor lady was in a bad way.

    Diamond Williams strived to rise above addiction.

    Diamond had people that cared about her. She loved music, and poetry, and had a great sense of humor.


    RIP Diamond.

    Could we perhaps now put her chosen name in the title, rather than just 'prostitute' ? Seems a bit more dignified.

    Poor Diamond. Such a short and troubled life. Rest in peace.

    Sad story but Diamond had to know that what she was doing was VERY risky. If the john thought Diamond was a female physically and he was high etc....well things can spin out of control real fast if the guy is homophobic and gets hostile.

    Sonya,

    I know you meant no disrespect and your point is a valid one. The trick had met her a week prior, he was known to her. He knew she was trans. Yes, all sex workers are aware of the risks - but when you couple in addiction and "quick cash" - situations turn dark rather quick. Diamond did not deserve to have her life snuffed out. Could she have made better choices? Yes, of course. But the fact remains that this is a hate crime be it against her race, gender or occupation. It's not fair and it isn't right. I would hope that if I met the same fate, everyone here would abstain from stating "but she knew she could get killed!", and stick to helping there be a resolve.
