Transgender Pageant Winner Killed in South Africa

Thapelo Makutle, 23, was murdered and mutilated last week in what rights groups are calling a hate crime. Makutle recently won the Miss Gay Kuruman pageant. He was found murdered in his apartment, his genitals cut off and put in his mouth. Police are investigating the crime as a murder.
