This is James White, nine years after sex-change surgery and four years after legally changing his name to Victoria Carmen.
The NJ.com reports:
The victim of a fatal shooting in Maplewood on Sunday was a woman, not a man, as had first been reported, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office announced today.
Victoria Carmen White was a post-operative transgender female having undergone sex reassignment surgery, the prosecutor’s office said. Her birth name was James White, the name authorities provided following her death.
Her birth certificate was legally changed to reflect the new name. Her age was also incorrect; she was 28 years old, not 29.
White, of Newark, was killed at 5 a.m. in a relative’s home on the 100 block of Jacoby Street. The case is still being investigated, and no arrest has been made or motive given.
