According to the police, the woman was wearing a black top and black scrub trousers.

"Officers pulled what they said was the body of a black, transgender woman, approximately 5'3" and 130 pounds.

Police are asking for the general public's assist in figuring out a transgender girl whose physique was present in a creek bordering a northeastern Dallas residential neighborhood. Flores-Pavon, who went by Karla on Facebook, was pronounced dead at a hospital, local outlet CBS11 reported on Thursday. Investigators have ruled the death unexplained pending further tests from the medical examiner's office. The case came just days after another transgender woman died - from apparent "homicidal violence", police said. The first one, Carla Patricia Flores-Pavon, was found strangled to death in North Dallas on May 9th. Few details are known about the circumstances of the victim's death; the Dallas Police Department is investigating.

A vigil was held for Flores-Pavon on Sunday at Dallas' Cathedral of Hope. Witnesses told police they saw a Latin male fleeing her apartment at the time of her attack, according to NBCDFW in Dallas Fort-Worth.

Dallas police said she was severely decomposed and didn't have an ID or any identifying marks.

"As people are educated about the issues of transgender folks, either on the transfeminine or transmasculine spectrum", Roberts said, "acceptance follows along".

28 trans people were killed in 2017 alone, making it the year with the highest number of homicides targeting trans or non-binary people.
