A transgender woman is dead tonight after repeatedly being run over behind a Kansas City church parking lot.
This is breaking news, but the basic details are known. Tamara Dominguez, a 36-year-old transgender woman, was killed in a church parking lot at Independence Avenue and Spruce at 3:00am Saturday night. After exiting a black Chevrolet Avalanche, the male driver hit her with his vehicle, then ran over her at least two more times.
Kansas City police say that they do not know if it is a hate crime, but it’s clear that some serious level of hate or rage has to be involved to repeatedly run someone over.
There is a short video at the link below. Her family has set up a GoFundMe site to help pay for her burial expenses.
