Portland Police Open Investigation In Death Of Black Transgender Woman


The family of Otis “TeTe” Michael Gulley Jr. began to receive frantic messages on social media May 27, asking “how are you related to TeTe?” and “call me ASAP.”

When Richard Bryant, Gulley’s brother, called one of the numbers back, the voice on the other end of the phone told him Gulley was dead.

According to the Portland Police Bureau, Gulley was found hanging in a tree in Rocky Butte Park near a homeless campsite.

Gulley, 31, was a black transgender woman and homeless. Check out the full story.
