Skylar was shot on 4th November, but due to misgendering and deadnaming her murder was not reported until over two weeks later.

Twenty-year-old Miami trans woman Skyler Heath was murdered on November 4, 2020, but due to misgendering and deadnaming, we are just learning about her death. Miami-Dade police found Skyler Heath in the vicinity of NW 14 Court and NW 82 Street, Miami, Florida at 4:13 am.

It is not yet known the circumstances surrounding her death or where she was pronounced dead.

We first learned of her murder on Social Media and by the Human Rights Campaign article asking for information.

The obituary also misgendered and deadnamed Skyler Heath. She was laid to rest on November 21, 2020.

Skylar was described as a “kind and gentle soul” who “had such a love for family and close friends” and who also “loved people in general.” She had a “warm personality” and a “friendly spirit,” and brought people who knew her “so much joy.”
