Memorial Service Held for Trans Woman Killed In Baltimore

BTL Staff

BALITMORE - Mia Henderson's life was taken on July 16th. She was found dead in a Baltimore alley. Henderson is the second transgender woman killed in Baltimore this summer. During the month previous, Kandy Hall, was found in a field, stabbed to death in northeast Baltimore.

The police are investigating any possible connections between the two killings and have no suspects at this point for either case.

A memorial service put on by The Spiritual Empowerment Center gathered in Charles Village at 1 p.m. on Saturday, brought more than just remembering her life.

"We prayed for justice and we prayed that we'll always remember them and that we'll walk in their spirit and that love and kindness that they had," said Pastor O'Lou Moise.

Saturday served as more than just a time of remembrance of a life taken, but also as a sharing of reassurance that no one is in this fight alone.
