Marine Suspected in Death of Transgender Filipino Woman

“White male foreigner” and “Marine-style haircut” and they have someone in custody? That’s pretty vague. I do not condone attacking transgender people – female OR male – but I have also seen guys who have the military style cut because they like it. Very low maintenance.

A U.S. Marine suspected in the killing of a 26-year-old transgender woman in the Philippines may be charged with murder as soon as Wednesday, Reuters reports.

Jennifer Laude, 26, was found naked with her head in a toilet and signs of strangulation last weekend, according to CNN. A witness reportedly saw Laude enter the hotel room with an “unidentified white male foreigner” who had a “Marine-style haircut,” CNN reported.

U.S. officials have not identified the Marine because no charges have been filed.
