Transgender woman kills boyfriend, brother

So how does this work in criminal statistics? A transgender woman kills her transgender boyfriend and her brother, then kills herself. Does this make women more likely to commit domestic violence, or do males get the blame for this?

A transgender woman wanted for fatally shooting her brother and also-trans lover over the weekend has been found dead, cops say, following a daylong manhunt by police.

Michigan police had warned citizens to be on the lookout for 22-year-old Ruby Taverner Sunday, after finding the bodies of Ray Muscat, 26, and Bishop Taverner, 25, in the suspect's Independence Township apartment early Sunday morning.

According to the sheriff’s office, Taverner formerly went by Martin, and Muscat previously used the first name Amber. The pair had been living together in the suspect's apartment.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Sunday that 5-foot-two, 115-lb. Taverner was 'armed and dangerous' and 'highly dangerous to themselves or someone else,' as police combed the area in search of the purple-haired suspect.

Her body was discovered by police Monday morning in woods near the crime scene. She reportedly died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound.

'An Independence Township woman who fatally shot her live-in boyfriend and her brother Sunday was found dead today of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound near the apartment complex where the fatal shootings occurred,' the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said Monday in a statement.

Police did not release a motive for the killings, but said Monday that they were likely premeditated, citing the fact that Taverner's brother had been shot once in the head.

'You don't typically find someone shot in the head one time unless they just kind of coolly and calmly walked up and did it,' Bouchard said.
Police also revealed that a Glock 43X handgun purchased by Taverner within the past week was found on her person, discovered by detectives searching the wooded area near Independence Square Apartments.

Authorities added she also had two other handguns registered in her name.

'This tragic situation has now been brought to a close, and our investigators will now pivot to see if we can answer the question on everyone’s mind - why,' Bouchard said in a press release sent after the discovery.

The suspect had been living with Ray Muscat - formerly known as Amber Muscat - cops said Sunday. It is unknown how long they had been in a relationship.

Police are investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting.

'It's a terrible situation,' Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Monday. ' It always seems to be magnified when you get someone who commits something horrible like that - a homicide - and then kills themselves.

lol at "women" - OP did it like 4 times.

And why is 'boyfriend' in quotes? Was he transgendered too? Or does OP just not recognized relationships with trans people?

Trans suicide attempt rate is 40%.

Does that break it down state by state? I assume the red states that are bludgeoning their TG kids have a higher suicide rate.
The party of life, folks.

It doesn't take an Einstein to realize people; especially young people, with mental disorders commit suicide at a very high rate compared to the general population >
