Essence Tatlor started this petition to portland police and

Her name was Aja Raquell Rhone-Spears. She was 34 years old when she was stabbed to death while attending a vigil in Portland on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Police were to have said that her case wouldn’t be opened because although she was defending herself, “she was still biologically a man who could easily defeat the cis woman.”

There were 20 to 30 people in the residence when a “large disturbance occurred involving multiple participants” according to a statement from police. Rhone-Spears and one other person was stabbed during the altercation.

Aja was at a vigil mourning the shooting death of Tyrrell Penney and didn’t survive. She went to s vigil for another Black person in Portland and died herself.
She studied at UNLV, followed multiple television series, and had a whole host of family members and friends who desperately miss her. We miss her!

Police have not identified leads as of yet. How does someone crash a vigil, start a fight, stab two people seemingly at random, and the police can’t produce leads?

Aja is the 26th person to be added to the list of Trans women killed in 2020.
