At a press conferences, Police Chief U. Reneé Hall said Lindsey’s body had “obvious signs of homicidal violence.”

Hall said that Dallas Police have reached out to the FBI to help with the investigation because of a possible connection to another trans woman who was murdered in the Dallas area.

“We are concerned, and we are actively and aggressively investigating the case,” Hall said.
