Keyiariah was found dead on 10th August. Although she was initially widely reported to have been murdered, her family subsequently requested that her death not be reported as such.
UPDATE: We’ve just been informed that the family of Keyiariah Quick, the Black trans woman we were told was found deceased on August 10th in NC, has asked that folks stop suggesting that she was killed.
They do not wish to publicly disclose what has happened to her, but we are asking that folk please respect their wishes.
We apologize for any negative impact this reporting has caused, and we also understand that the death of any Black trans woman, regardless of cause, is a sad and painful event. Our heart goes out to her friends and family and community who loved her.
