Dallas police are investigating unsolved murders and attacks on male-to-female (MtF) transgenders to determine if a serial killer is on the loose.

Police are investigating whether two shooting deaths and multiple attacks on transgenders are linked.

"These cases, although not directly related at this time, do have some similarities the public needs to be aware of," Maj. Vincent Weddington told reporters at a news conference Tuesday.

Muhlaysia Booker, 23, was fatally shot early Saturday. Booker was killed weeks after being assaulted by a mob in a viral video.

Police arrested Edward Thomas, 29, and charged him with assault and a possible hate crime. Thomas bonded out of jail and police say he is not linked to Booker's shooting death.

In October 2018, a transgender was found shot to death in a vehicle parked in southeast Dallas, according to NBC News.

In April, a transgender survived after being repeatedly stabbed in south Dallas. Police have no suspects in those cases.

Two of the 3 victims got into a car near an intersection in the area of Spring Avenue and Lagow Street - just before the attacks, Weddington said.

All three victims were sex workers.

  • JustB

    The details given in both cases aren't that of a serial killer

  • Fire & Ice

    Ain't no serial killer on the loose. These are the dangers that sex workers face. Lots of biological women get assaulted and killed all the time prostituting. None the less, Booker's life was short and tragic. Just a really sad story.

  • Beloved Jordan

    Please let these men know upfront if u are a man or a woman...as soon as they say, "aye shawty" or "excuse me miss"..let them know im a man ..this may reduce the killings

  • Yoni7

    Aye Detectives, if you're reading this, I'd like to offer up one of our very own poster for your investigation. It goes by the name Robert Lee Bennett. If yall can find the single cow that carries the mad cow disease, the surely you can find this poster I'm handing over to you. https://media3.giphy.com/media/yR4xZagT71AAM/giphy.gif

  • NewNew

    Oh Lord, i blocked him so long ago that i didn't know he was still up to his shenanigans. What a miserable person

  • NewNew

    Sex work is a dangerous business whether you are transgender or not.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yup...exactly. There trying to make it look like transexuals are being targeted by some serial killer.

  • Banka

    All three victims were sex workers...... Oh Golly Wolly ya think !!!!

  • Yoni7
  • Russiancreme

    It could be a serial killer, slim chances tho.

    Here in Chicago 55, yes 55 black and brown women have been murdered and found in trash cans/alleys. Most but not all were sex workers. The police are finally looking at it as a serial killer bc they finally realizing 55 or even 5 different didnt kill all of these women.

  • oshh16

    Very sad....

  • Latisaj

    They have also been killing young ladies here in Detroit and disposing of their bodies in trash cans and other areas throughout our city. These ladies are very young late teens early 20's and have no found connection at the time with sexual works... What is going on???

  • RICHIE_RICH

    That Robert is a whole T

  • Gloria

    Its dangerous to be a sex worker as a woman. Thats why they NEED their pimps/sponsors to protect them but to be a transgendered woman? Baby, just find you a legal job. That sex work is not worth the risk of losing your life.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I hope she gets justice. Most trannies don’t walk the streets they have ads where the men know it’s a tranny from jump.

  • Russiancreme

    Psycho, sicko, weirdo ass men who know they can get away with it bc the police don't see these women, sex worker or not, as worthy of their concern. I know if 5 let alone 55 white women are found dead in my city, tRump would get his wish of having the national guard here and all the local politicos would welcome them with open arms.

    As far as tgirls go, ain't NO man getting tricked into that lol.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    The trannies that walk the streets have pimps too. It’s major money with trannies

  • Trace da Ace

    lawdy.....yeah..that one...smdh...I think I blocked him a while back....thank god...

  • RICHIE_RICH

    They been getting the organ and selling them on the dark web

  • CardiB’sAbs

    What in the world?!?! What’s the timeframe for these killings?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    ??????

  • Russiancreme

    Last 15 years or so. Sorry I left that out.

  • Trace da Ace

    I pray that they find the person(s) responsible for this...no matter what they choose to do for a living or whom they choose to identify with as far as gender...nobody deserves to die like that.....if you pick up a she/he not knowing they are trans or whatnot...then that is YOUR fault for trolling the streets for some trim anyway!!! By no means is this reason to end somebody's life.....PERIOD!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    OMG! This has been happening for a looooong time. Nobody down at the police dept has connected the dots?

  • Russiancreme

    Nope it took outsiders and a few exposes in the local papers for the police to finally say a few weeks ago they considering a serial killer.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    It’s rough out here for them. If they can’t pass as a woman they’ll have a difficult time finding employment and many were kicked out of their homes as teenagers and didn’t finish high school because if it or at least that’s what I learned by watching Pose.

  • Yoni7

    I've heard about Pose. Is it a reality show/documentary or scripted?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    LAWD! America’s double standard. We have to look out for ourselves bc we can’t trust the cops to do it. Smh.

  • Yoni7

    Were they all murdered in the same fashion?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Scripted. Thanks to someone’s advice on here, I pushed through and finished the season. It’s good! Although I did fast forward all the scenes with the DL married man and his male lover.

  • Yoni7

    Trade? Yep.

  • Yoni7

    So they had storylines and characters and whatnot?

  • Russiancreme

    I think most were strangled. All were found in alleys, either in or next to trash cans. I remember reading that part and thinking how did the police think these were all isolsted.

  • Yoni7

    WHO choking somebody like that???? You gotta be a mad muthafukka to sit there and strangle somebody to death. https://media1.giphy.com/media/TE1S8Wor3WbjW/giphy.gif

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Yup!

  • Gloria

    Heartbreaking. I think I will have to check this Pose show out.

  • Renee26

    Ok! Work a regular job and keep your dignity and life

  • Renee26

    Most companies have it in their policies not to discriminate on them...they can work regular jobs

  • Bree

    It's amazing that the victims were sex workers. Why? And if you are going to live a certain lifestyle, why not let the other party know what's going on or who you really are? Deception doesn't get any of us far. We see it happening everywhere, every day. If this is what they say is their truth, why are they ashamed to say, I was born a man? Portraying to be someone you are not is hard work. You start to believe your own lie. I hope however that the perpetrator is captured to bring justice to their murders. No one deserves to die like that, yet no one deserves to be deceived. People snap and sometimes there is no coming back from that.

  • Renee26

    Probably don't care enough to investigate

  • Renee26

    Had they been yt women they would've been looking a lot harder

  • Renee26

    Why you make me laugh??!!

  • Yoni7

    I hope it's a good thing. Laughter is medicine for the soul.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Well that’s good!

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    We should legalize sex work. It's the oldest profession and those who do it should be able to do it in a safe manner.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol!!!

  • Shawty

    I'm confused to why they have to sell sex. They have websites for everything else, why not one for them where a person KNOWS exactly what they are dealing with. Shit maybe I need to start one...lol Can't be held accountable for fooling someone if they go to the website looking for one...I'm just saying.

  • The Art

    Who can't tell that these "women" are actually transgendered men??? Very FEW of them are believable as women in real life. The reality is, they are being targeted and murdered and it has nothing to do with disclosure.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Maybe the link is they are out trying to pass for women and all ended up with men who do not play that. OOOR its a serial killer who has been on the hunt for trans who is out tricking and trickin..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    In some places it is.. I think the bunny ranch is an example.

  • Renee26

    Absolutely ?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    That’s what I’m saying they have website. Most trannies have ads on website, so any dude that’s on the website already knows it’s a tranny

  • Shawty

    Hopefully they not preyed upon through that website!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Predators LOVE killing $ex workers!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Sometimes they are.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Yup!

  • Shawty

    Sad

  • Junkanoo

    What a brief life so sorry this happened to you you did nothing to deserve being hunted down and killed rest easy.

  • YellowSauce

    I watched a very popular reality show and there was one trans and he bragged about no one being able to tell he was a trans woman and barely ever told men he was really a man and also has trans friends that do the same .... I'm not bashing but the deception has to stop and also threatening people that you will expose them ... If you play with someone's life they might do the same to yours .................... I'm not wishing anything on anyone but they need to stop being messy and truth be told THAT is what turns a lot of people off ... We need to tell the truth about this situation seriously because i'm not giving my sympathy to people that CREATE their own ish but don't want to smell it .................... With that said, I wish safety for everyone !!!

  • Elevated Soul

    Serial killers often target prostitutes because many prostitutes are transient. All victims should be proritized when a serial killer may be at work. Real women who prostitute are being killed as well,always have been.

    As usual the Gay Mafia always try to make themselves try to make themselves out to be more than everyone else but they are not. I'm also not convinced that a serial killer is responsible.

    Prostitution has always been dangerous. Deception is also a very dangerous thing and it may get you killed.

  • Phillybruh

    Transsexual sex workers operate in very specific parts of town and if a trans women is in your car it is because you picked up that trans person knowing exactly what they were. You can't trick the willing. To any man out here who doesn't want to be exposed stop messing with the transwomen making them bae behind close doors and then expect them and their feelings to remain there they are people to.

  • YellowSauce

    I think it should be legalized also but that won't stop trans from being killed ... They may THINK they are unclockable but once a MAN finds out it might be lights out ... They pride themselves on being able to "trick" people about the nature of their true gender .... Now what I don't agree with is the changing of a birth certificate it SHOULD STATE WHAT YOU WERE BORN AS ... its a BIRTH certificate and should reflect just that

  • Gloria

    Isn’t it only legal in Nevada? I can’t speak for other countries but I think it is only legal in 1 US state

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well they finally kilt this poor woman...I guess some folks are actually satisfied. Dallas police are not spending their resources looking for a MtF transgender serial killa.

  • Fire & Ice

    It is...my goodness Bookers lifer was short, brutal and tragic.

  • Bree

    I can't clock these people because I'm not checking for them. I was in the laundry and asked a lady to excuse me because I didn't want to bump into her. Turns out, she was a he. Made me feel some kind of way.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    Real talk.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    Truth be told, transgendered women are being and have always been targeted because of the fear guys have of being exposed by them. Which means it’s men out there sleeping with them and when these TGs try and extort them with exposure shit like this happens.

  • YellowSauce

    Men do this to women too ........ They cheat

    they won't stop that ... They cheat and hide

    but knowing is definitely different especially if you go some where specific looking for something specific

    and that is why is imperative to state your gender ...
    it should be law to disclose

    PS You can't pretend to be down with the down low and then be mad that someone wants to KEEP it on the down low and then blackmail them because you don't want to do it anymore male or female .... people agree to things.
    Walking away is also an option and not dealing with someone that wants to hide you

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly. All of these people blaming the victims are full of crap saying they got what they deserve for not being forthcoming about their birth gender.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    *sigh*
    Most of these trans are obviously men and as another poster stated these trans are located in a particular part of town so these men seek them out.
    Maybe this trans bragging about being able to fool men is an ego think because most of them still have visible male features even under all of that make-up.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But that doesn't keep co-workers from being a-holes though.

  • YellowSauce

    There are some that are prettier than natural born women ... go to youtube ...........seriously
    The are undetectable ... i'm TELLING you lol

  • Latisaj

    Yes, people were advising everyone by word of mouth to not go in these areas and the police were saying nothing.

  • B.Loveitt

    Don't be wanna of chicks that everybody swears is a man. Might get you snuffed when you are a real girl. Ijs

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No not unless you're blind.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • B.Loveitt

    You're right! Most men aren't into this but they have convinced themselves that they'll never get caught up because they can always tell. So blinded with hate and fear, they're the very ones that will get caught and kill. But up top looks like one of them boy off Candler Road switching pass the liquor store in ATL right off 20 East.

  • B.Loveitt

    They don't wanna hear that. Believing they can always tell gives them a false sense of security. I had to tell some other on another post. But they swear for God they'll know. If some biological women look like men...they should understand it works both ways then. Right there is were they got phucked up. ?

  • B.Loveitt

    Ever talk or read and article about men who love both biological women and transgender chicks too. I have and that's when I decided I want to see a sex reassignment surgery. They have wealth of infor. because hey they're doing both. People are crazy fascinating creatures.

  • The Art

    Claiming non-disclosure is just a convenient way for people to try to justify the killing of trans women. Most trans women are visibly men if you pay attention, which anyone trying to hook-up should be doing. Mistaking one for a woman does not equate to a trans woman actively trying to fool unsuspecting men in sexual encounters.

  • Renee26

    True... But if HR gets wind of teasing they will lose their jobs. Best to just look and internalize the comments

  • Desiree Hall

    That location listed is known as the trans block. If they picking up prostitutes there, they know EXACTLY what they are getting.

  • Blackbutterfly81

    Totally agree the one in the story looks like a man to me. But I do feel sorry that they died. Is it really not possible to get a regular job ???

  • Tina

    Let's not pretend that these Trans are innocent people minding their own business. They try to fool men too and once the guy finds out it's a man, they black out and try to kill them. These transies are very disrespectful and love attention and drama.

  • Tina

    It was never a woman and even if it had surgery to mutilate itself it still doesn't make it a woman. If you were to wait until that things corpse rotted away and dug it up the bones will be those of a man.

  • Tina

    You damn right about that!!! Like you all say to live your truth. Well my truth tells me that I am a heterosexual and if someone tried to trick me into being gay, they will end up in a casket..

  • Tina

    You're comparing cheating to tricking someone into a stank gay relationship?? This world is doomed!!

  • Tina

    It should be a crime to trick someone into a gay relationship. Heterosexual people have rights too.

  • T Willis

    I’ve seen dating profiles where the guys indicate that they’re trans. That takes a lot of bravery to put yourself out there and state that you’re transgendered, yet a lot of them do. And for that bravery they get taunted, harassed, shamed, and disrespected for living their truth. It’s like they can’t win for losing. They get attacked when they don’t disclosed, and attacked when they do. Smh

  • Tina

    How do you know if they knew it was a he/she? It could have been an out of towner or someone who wasn't aware of it being a man. Either way I could care less because I had my own experience with these things. I am a biological woman and I was walking down the block one day, when three of those things saw me and started cursing me out for no reason. One even tried to fight me getting all in my face screaming "Whatcha looking at B". Then I had another experience where this dyke girl was stalking me because she liked me. This dyke lives in my neighborhood so she knows I have a man and I'm not into that lifestyle. Problem with these things is that they want everyone to partake in the gay worlds lifestyle and that in itself is highly offensive and cause for them to end up like this he/she

    I hope they find them, allow folks to love and be who they want.

    A serial killer because of two deaths and an almost over an 8 month period? Oh ok.

  • Panther Charleston

    My same thoughts about Care Free Curl...somebody out here buying it! Every damn Walmart and Walgreens selling it. Say what you want, but somebody pillowcase out here greezy as hell.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    absolutely right to our choice like they do!

  • BogartKing

    I don't believe in tranny bullshit but dont you think law inforcement are setting trannies up to be murdered. It's already been proven through multiple occasions in 100 years that police do whatever they can to eliminate black people. This is just a easy growing way to do it under the radar

  • YellowSauce

    I am not comparing cheating to tricking someone into messing with a trans
    You all the way missed the point and actually doesn't seem necessary to explain to you ...........
    You're right the world is doomed but only because the Lord said so ............. Amen

  • YellowSauce

    20/20 is what the doctor says .......
    hahahaahahahha

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I get what you saying and that is true but MOST tranny's LOOK LIKE A DAMN MAN! So I'm just gonna go with the theory that they are angry with themselves for having sex with the tranny in the first place but those demands they have make them crave a tranny so afterwards when they CUM back into there right frame of mind they get enraged and violent. It's really sad all the way around.

  • Coffee1st

    ??.....dang. Somebody IS buying that stuff... aint they ??

  • Coffee1st

    i'm not giving my sympathy to people that CREATE their own ish but don't want to smell it ...
