    NY - Venus Xtravaganza, 23, New York City, December 1988

    Venus Xtravaganza was born Thomas Pellagatti in New Jersey on May 22, 1965. She reportedly joined the House of Xtravaganza in 1983 and appeared in the documentary film Paris Is Burning.

    Few details appear to be available online about her death. Venus was supposedly found stuffed under a bed in a New York City hotel room on or about December 25, 1988. It is believed she died as a result of strangulation on December 21, 1988.

    According to a relative, the killer was never caught. It remains unclear if a suspect or person of interest was named.

    I am seeking additional information about Venus' murder.

    As an FYI, I have filed a records request with the NYPD. However, that agency typically takes a significant amount of time to respond.

    Venus was ahead of his time. I just wanted to acknowledge Venus, and share a short but nice article that someone wrote.
