Sandy Woulard

Sandy was found lying in the street. She died in hospital.

Sandy was found dead in the street on Chicago's South Side by a passerby. She was just 28 years old. She was found with money still in her purse, signaling a motivation greater than simple theft or robbery. Early media accounts of her death were not trans-friendly, and one article even called her "a man in a dress".
