Almost two years after the still unsolved slaying of a transgender woman, community members gathered Saturday in central Fresno for a vigil and die-in in a bid for justice.

Casey or “K.C.” Haggard, 66, was “just transitioning,” said Jess Fitzpatrick, co-chairman of Trans-E-Motion, when she was fatally stabbed in 2015.

“We’re remembering a member of our community who was violently murdered on the streets of Fresno,” Fitzpatrick said. “Although the murder was caught on camera, a suspect has yet to be arrested.”

The vigil was hosted by Trans-E-Motion, a nonprofit that provides support and education for the transgender community.
