The victim was shot multiple times in the face and torso.

News reports described them as a “man wearing women’s clothes”.

The last time Jermaine Christopher Scott spent quality time with [their] favorite niece was June 25, 2009. Sherri Norwood turned 17 that day, and it also happened to be the day [their] idol Michael Jackson died.

“I had a dinner party and [they] made my day really special,” Sherri said. “[They] made sure I had a wonderful time on my birthday.”

Six days later, on July 1, 2009 — a decade ago this month — Jermaine’s body was found in Fairmount Park. [They] had been shot, and [their] murder remains unsolved. [They were] 36 years old.
