Natasha's body was found inside her car on Tuesday 12th January. She had last been seen alive leaving a motel on 29th December.

A missing persons alert was put out for her on 6th January.

A Detroit transgender woman who had been missing since December [29] was found dead [Tuesday].

The body of Natasha Kieanna, 37, was found in her white Saturn SUV on the city’s west side, the Detroit Free Press reports. There were no signs of trauma, police said, but members of her family suspect foul play.

The fact that she was on the passenger side of the vehicle was suspicious, her mother, Bernetha Shelton, told the paper. She also said her daughter had gotten “mixed up with the wrong crowd.”

“She was a beautiful person,” Shelton added. “She was loved all over.”

The Detroit police had issued a missing persons alert for Kieanna January 6. She was found after a man reported that the SUV had been parked in front of his house for two weeks, according to Detroit TV station WJBK. He had called police at least twice before they came out, he said. Shelton also criticized the police’s delay.
