Evon Young, a 22-year-old transgender rapper from Milwaukee, was the victim in a gang killing January 1. Three men have since been convicted in the murder, and two others arrested. Young was suffocated, beaten, and shot before being dismembered and set ablaze, but his body was never recovered and given an appropriate burial.
