Domonique Newburn, 32, was well on her way to realizing her dream of becoming an out transgender music star, as she had just finished filming the latest season of the Web series, Hollywood Houseboys, when she was found brutally murdered inside her apartment in Fontana, Calif., August 20. Police have offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Dantjier Powell, 18, a former partner of Newburn's who police believe beat her to death in August and then fled the city with his girlfriend, Jamie Nicole Cotton. Despite widespread media coverage of Newburn's death and the recovery of her car, in which Powell is believed to have escaped, no arrests have been made.
