As reported in The Detroit News:
The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office has confirmed the death of 19-year-old Shelley Hilliard, a transgender teen also known as Treasure, after her mother identified her torso this morning.
The teen, who was born Henry Hilliard, went missing in the early hours of Oct. 23 and was last seen on the 900 block of Longfellow on Detroit’s west side.
The Medical Examiner’s office received her torso later on Oct. 23, and Lyniece Nelson, Hilliard’s mother, identified her this morning.
Nelson said she had no idea who might’ve done this.
“She was loved by a lot people, a lot of friends a lot of family,” Nelson said. “She just brought joy to everyone that she came in contact with. She was always there for her family.”
