A man convicted of killing a trans woman and LGBTQ+ advocate in May 2019 has been sentenced. 30-year-old Troy Bailey was found guilty of third-degree murder and other charges in the death of 40-year-old Michelle "Tamika" Washington last week. He was sentenced to 25-50 years in prison. It happened around 5 a.m. Sunday, 5/19/19, on the 3400 block of North 11th Street. Washington was shot multiple times to her head and body. She was taken to Temple University Hospital where she died from her injuries. Police say that surveillance video shows the suspect and victim walking together before the shooting. Bailey first gave the police a false description of a suspect before admitting he was the shooter.

A Bucks County police officer was arrested for attempting to lure a child for sex in Atlantic City last week. 54-year-old Clifford Horn of Chalfont is an officer with the Central Bucks Regional Police Department. He is one of four men arrested after a sting operation carried out by concerned citizens. The group is called Colorado Ped Patrol. They posed as underage children online and communicated with the men on social media. "They would confront the individual and notify local law enforcement. The citizens provided the responding officers with screen shots of conversations and detailed information that was shared between the citizens and the suspects," Atlantic City police said in a press release. The other men arrested include 51-year-old Jose Machuca, of Hyattsville, Maryland; 26-year-old Sambatrimiaina Raminoson, of Atlantic City; and 49-year-old Eugene Pulley, of Philadelphia. If you have any information or know of other victims, call Atlantic City Police at 609-347-5766.

Philadelphia Police have identified the man arrested for the murder of a 13-year-old girl in Frankford back in April. 25-year-old Luis Rodriguez was taken into custody on Friday, 7/23. It happened just before 11 p.m. on April 18 on the 1500 block of Overington Street. Police found 13-year-old Alezuana "Libby" Carter suffering from a gun shot wound to the head. She was taken to the hospital where died. A witness told police that Rodriguez came running out of the home saying, "I shot her, I shot her in the neck." He also apparently bragged about the murder on several occasions. Video shows him entering and leaving the home. Ballistic evidence from a playground shootout earlier in the day matches the weapon allegedly used in the murder. The circumstances leading up the the shooting have not been revealed.
