T. T. was found dead in Chicago's Garfield Park on the night of Sunday 11th September. Her throat had been cut and there was a knife nearby.

Saffore is the 20th reported transgender person who was killed in the United States in 2016. In August, two transgender women were found dead — Skye Mockabee and Rae'Lynn Thomas.

"People don't know what we go through out here," Armstrong said. "They don't see the struggle being transgender on [Chicago's] West Side. It's crazy. I just want justice for my friend. Trans lives matter. She is the third person killed around here and there is nothing done about it."
