Mia Henderson, a transgender woman whose brother is Los Angeles Clippers guard Reggie Bullock, was found dead in a Baltimore alleyway on Wednesday, police officials said.

Police discovered Henderson's body while serving a search warrant and determined that she had been murdered.

“We do know that there was trauma to the body to indicate that there was a homicide,” said Major Dennis Smith of Baltimore City police, according to CBS Baltimore.

Police are not sure if Henderson's death is connected to the murder of a transgender woman in Baltimore in June.

Bullock sent two tweets after learning Henderson, whose birth name was Kevin Long, had been killed.
