In Texas: College Football Player arrested for the murder of a Trans Woman

Last month, I talked about the murder of Ty Underwood. Ty was a trans woman who was shot multiple times in her car in Tyler, Texas. For weeks, there was no suspect or arrest, until now.

Police arrested Texas College student, Carlton Champion Jr. He was a player on the Texas College football team.

According to the investigators, Carlton was involved with Ty for several weeks via text messages. The two were meeting for sex, until Carlton found out that Ty was trans. Once Carlton learned the truth, he freaked out and murdered her. Now Carlton sits in jail with a bond set at $1 million dollars.

It didn't have to be like this. Carlton could've ended the relationship and just walked away, but to resort to murder is just inexcusable.
