Brooklyn's body was found on the porch of an abandoned home.

Police are investigating the death of a transgender woman whose body was found at an abandoned home.

Police say 32-year-old Brooklyn Lindsey was found dead shortly after 6:30 a.m. Tuesday at Independence and Spruce Avenues.

Police Sgt. Adam Painter says her body was found on the porch of the home. Lindsey showed obvious signs of trauma, but the cause of death was not immediately clear.

A lot of people in the neighborhood said they've been frustrated by problems with drugs, prostitution and violence on their street. They said Lindsey had been badly beaten before they heard the gunshots.

In July 2019 Marcus Lewis, 41, was charged with her murder.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Missouri, man was charged Friday in connection with the deadly shooting of a transgender woman last month, according to court records.

Marcus Lewis, 41, was charged in Jackson County Court with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to court documents, Lewis shot 32-year-old Brooklyn Lindsey on June 25 as the two fought outside a house in the 600 block of Spruce Avenue.

Lindsey, whom neighbors said was a transgender woman, was found on the front porch of the home. Police said her cause of death wasn’t immediately known.

DNA on shell casings at the scene led detectives to Lewis, according to court documents.
