February 4th, Jacksonville Florida report the shooting death of Celine Walker as the 4th confirmed transgender murder of 2018.
36 year old Celine Walker was brutally shot dead inside a room at Extended Stay America on Skinner Lake Drive. Jacksonville Police responded to a 911 call around 8pm.
Police and media originally misgendered Celine, hampering this investigation. This has since been corrected by police and local media.
Celine doesn’t have a permanent address listed but was originally from Brandon Florida.
Jacksonville is home to some of the most amazingly talented trans women. That being said you’d think Jacksonville would have a policy in place for dealing with the death and murder of trans people.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is now calling this a murder investigation. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
