US: Suspect turns himself in following Cincinnati murder of trans woman
A man has surrendered himself to police, after a trans woman who was shot dead last month.
Quamar Edwards’ uncle Greg Mullins told a local news station that Tiffany had asked for a lift, and that he panicked when she hit on him.
While misgendering her, Mullins denied the attack was based on Tiffany’s sexual identity.
He said: “I hate this with a passion, ma’am, to even bring my nephew down here and walk him into the police station. But it’s the right thing to do.
This was never a hate thing. Mullins said.
“Apparently, he found out the boy was gay because he’s trying to hit on him and all other kinds of stuff.
“And I told you, my nephew gets an attitude about that now. I don’t know what happened after but this has nothing to do ’cause the guy was gay.”

Tiffany’s mother Temeka Edwards, said: “I never suspected the support that I’m receiving. I’m glad this vigil couldn’t have been on a better day. This guy turned himself in.”
