Rita Hester and the Murders of Black Transgender Women in America
In 1998, Rita Hester was murdered in her Boston apartment. Rita was active in the transgender community and her gruesome death inspired Transgender Remembrance Day—but her murderer is still out there. Paul and Billy investigate Rita’s case, and also shed light on the recent murders of Merci Mack, Shakie Peters, Brayla Stone, Bree Black, Draya McCarty, Remmie Fells and Riah Milton—seven transgender women found slain in June and July of 2020. So far, only two cases have led to an arrest. We need to change that.
