Friends and family are mourning the loss of a transgender woman killed overnight on Holden Avenue in Orange County.
“She was a very outgoing person, very outspoken,” said Mulan Montrese Williams, who knew the victim.
"Somewhat of a firecracker.”
Williams met Sasha Garden two years ago through mutual friends.
They got to know each other better while at Williams’ trans empowerment group meetings.
Around 7 a.m. Thursday, Williams got an unexpected knock at the door.
Deputies were trying to identify a person killed just down the street.
