Police in Baltimore on Wednesday found in an alley the remains of Mia Henderson, a 26-year-old transgender woman.

Henderson is the second transgender woman found murdered in as many months.

Last month, Kandy Hall, 40, was stabbed to death.

The 26-year-old Henderson, who was born Kevin Long, is the sibling of Reggie Bullock, a player for the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.

“All I can say is my brother showed me how to live your own life,” Bullock tweeted. “Love you so much man. Gone but not forgotten.”

Reuters quoted police spokesman Lieutenant Eric Kowalczyk as saying that Henderson was the victim of “severe trauma” and that prostitution may have played a role in the murder.

“We are looking into what she was doing before the tragic taking of her life,” said Kowalczyk, who decline to say whether he suspected the killer was motivated by hate.
