Say Her Name: Zella Ziona
Zella Ziona is the 21st transgender/gender-nonconforming person murdered this year.
In Gaithersburg, Maryland, Zella was shot in the head in an alley between Montgomery Village Plaza and the Montgomery Village Crossing shopping centers.
Later on, Montgomery County Department of Police has identified and arrested Rico Hector Leblond in connection with Zella's murder. A witness claimed that 4 or 5 men surrounded and Rico pulled the gun.
He has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond.
To Zella's family and friends, my heart goes out to you.
