On Easter Sunday morning, Sasha Wall’s body was found in her car, slumped over the steering wheel on a country road in Chesterfield County, SC (about 40 miles from Charlotte, NC). A bullet was recovered from the driver’s side door, and indications are she was shot by a passenger, or by someone outside the car with the passenger door open. Sasha, an African-American transwoman, was 29 years old.
As usual, initial reports misgendered her and used her deadname.
This one bears a little talking about. Christians, pay attention!
It was Easter Sunday. Sasha sat in her still-idling car, slumped over the wheel, in the middle of a country road for over two hours before anyone stopped to see what was amiss. Several people reported seeing the car on their way to church, when police asked for information that might help understand what happened. According to police, they drove around the car that was oddly parked in the middle of the road, and just passed on by.
On their way to church. A stranger, injured and dying, in the middle of the road…
Naah, it’s too easy. Just…go read Luke 10:30–37, and tell me what happened here, willya?
As of this writing, no suspect has been located in this case.
