SAN ANTONIO MAN WHO PUSHED TRANS WOMAN INTO RIVER WON’T BE TRIED FOR HER DEAT
LGBT activists plan to protest outside a Texas court after learning that a man who killed a transgender woman by pushing her into the San Antonio river will not face trial.
Mark Daniel Lewis, 20, is alleged to have killed Kenne McFadden by pushing her into the San Antonio River last year. McFadden, 26, was under the influence of alcohol and Lewis is accused of failing to help her, therefore causing the woman’s death.
LGBT advocacy groups have responded with anger, and have highlighted that McFadden was at least the twelfth transgender person to be killed in the U.S. in 2017. Almost all of the victims were black women. Activists plan to march in front of Bexar County District Attorney’s office on March 13.
