Alexus' body was found in an apartment building on the night of Thursday 4th February. Miami police are investigating her death as a homicide.

Alexus Braxton, also known as Kimmy Icon Braxton, was killed in Miami on February 4, 2020. Police discovered Braxton’s body at approximately 10:31 p.m at the California Club Condominiums at 915 North East 199 Street, the Miami-Dade Police Department told Gay City News.

The department usually releases more details about the victim’s death, but in this incident, authorities said disclosing how it was done may “jeopardize the case.”

Kimmy was born and raised in Miami. She was living in Aventura at the time of her death. She studied at Miami Dade College in the 1990s and has worked as a hairstylist. Her social media is lively and festive, filled with interests and relationships.

She is the sixth trans or gender nonconforming person reported killed in 2021. She’s the fifth Black trans woman. In total, there have been SEVEN murders or suspicious deaths in the first 35 days of 2021, an average of one death every five days. So far. That we know of.
