Leelah Alcorn by Shinji-Lkari Leelah Alcorn by Shinji-Lkari
"A note reportedly left by an Ohio teen asking that her death expose the problems transgender people suffer has been cited by an Ohio official and has prompted police to investigate the death as a suicide and to determine if there was a link to the note.
Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach posted a long note on his Facebook page, a note that was reportedly left behind by Leelah Alcorn, who was born Joshua Alcorn. It reportedly had been scheduled to post on Tumblr after the teen died.
Alcorn, 17, according to police, died Sunday after being hit by a tractor trailer in a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. Officers from the Ohio Highway Patrol told ABC News they are investigating the death as a suicide and looking into the note."

No. Her method of suicide was extremely selfish. She made another man, an innocent man, a murderer.

Why are you changing the subject? It was a selfish act that caused an innocent man to have trauma that could follow him the rest of his life.

Murder, especially manslaughter, tends to have a lasting impression.

The death of "Joshua Alcorn" was reported on my local news channel. Kids in my grade have competed against her former school district.
