“Tiffany” Gooden 19, a transgender teen was found brutally murdered on Tuesday night, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.Multiple stab wounds and incised wounds were ruled as the cause of death.
Brian Turner, an outreach coordinator at Taskforce Prevention and Community Services on the West Side, confirmed that Gooden had visited Taskforce but said he had not worked directly with Gooden. It remains uncertain if Gooden identified as transgender or used a female name and pronouns exclusively, he said.
