Baltimore police: Transgender woman found fatally shot
Posted September 16
BALTIMORE — Police are asking residents of a northwest Baltimore neighborhood and members of the LGBT community for information on the fatal shooting of a transgender woman.
Police spokesman T.J. Smith spoke at a news conference Friday in the area where 32-year-old Crystal Edmonds was found. Smith says she was found about 3 a.m. with a gunshot wound to her head, and died about 11 a.m.
Smith says investigators don't have much evidence, and urged anyone with information to call police. He says "tips work," and notes that information from residents led to two arrests after a man was stabbed and robbed in northeast Baltimore earlier this week.
Police say area residents have complained about illegal activity, but there is no evidence that Edmonds was involved in criminal activity.
