Four months ago, Bree “Nuk” Black was shot and killed close to her home, and police still have no leads on who her killer was.
A transgender woman, Black was shot and killed in Pompano Beach on July 3. Even though crowds of people were in the neighborhood because of the Fourth of July weekend, police have not received any information that can help them identify the shooter.
“I checked with our Homicide Unit and they are still seeking any information in reference to the murder of Bree Black. At this time they do not have any additional information,” BSO Sergeant Donald Prichard, a public information officer with the office, said in an email to SFGN.
A month after her killing, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony announced that a reward for information leading to an arrest was increased to $8,000. During the press conference, the sheriff said, “We have not received any type of information from the community. No calls, no tips, no support in this particular investigation.”
In September, Tatiana Williams, the co-founder and executive director of TransInclusive, told SFGN that Black’s family has been “grateful” to those working to find her killer. Williams added: “The father stated he has been threatened due to this ongoing investigation and the family is trying to put this behind them.”
In 2020, the transgender community has been rocked by a high number of transgender people, particularly Black and brown women, murdered in the United States. According to the Human Rights Campaign, 34 transgender people have been killed. In 2019, the number was 25.
