South Dakota Transgender Woman Found Dead in Her Apartment

Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow

Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow is likely the second transgender homicide victim of 2017.

Police in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, are reporting that Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow, 28, a local Two-Spirit woman, was the victim of a homicide.

Wounded Arrow's body was discovered Friday after a neighbor complained of a strong odor coming from her apartment. After inspecting her apartment, investigators believe Wounded Arrow's death was a homicide.

The Sioux Falls Two-Spirit and Allies organization mourned Wounded Arrow's death on their Facebook page.

Wounded Arrow could be 2017's second killing of a transgender woman, discovered in just a matter of days after the year's first killing. On Wednesday, transgender woman Mesha Caldwell was found dead in Madison County, Mississippi, and the local coroner ruled her death a homicide.
