Jennifer Laude was murdered on October 11, 2014 in Olongapo, Phillipines, by Joseph Scott Pemberton because of her status as a trans person.

From Wikipedia:

"Laude, a trans woman, met Pemberton, a United States Marine from New Bedford, Massachusetts, at the Ambyanz disco bar in Olongapo on the evening of October 11, 2014.[2][3][4] According to police and witnesses, they subsequently went to Celzone Lodge, a nearby motel.[5][6] Thirty minutes after checking in, Pemberton left the motel, leaving the door to the room ajar. Staff found Laude's naked body, partially covered from the waist down, with her neck blackened with strangulation marks and her head in a toilet bowl."

Pemberton was arrested and charged with homicide, however he was imprisoned on a military facility, rather than a regular jail, with many accomadations most prisoners wouldn't have.

Recently, on September 7, 2020, her murderer, Pemberton, was pardoned by the president, Rodrigo Duterte and now walks free. This man needs to be put back in jail, for the safety of other trans people, for Jennifer Laude, who should still be alive, and for Laude's family.
