How National Groups are Reacting to Augusta’s 3 Transgender Murders


Augusta has witnessed the murder of three transgender women in less than three years.

There is no evidence the slayings are connected, but there are similarities in some of the deaths, including the use of escort services by two of the victims to meet strangers.

And while arrests have been made in each case, the latest homicide of 26-year-old Keshia Chanel Geter has attracted the attention and criticism of a national human rights group who works to end discrimination against LGBTQ+ people.

The full story with new details on the murders and reaction from national human rights groups is available for online subscribers of The Augusta Press.
