Vigil Planned for Transgender Activist Found Dead in Anaheim
Organizers were planning a vigil Friday for a transgender woman whose body was found in a parking lot behind an Anaheim restaurant.
Zoraida “Ale” Reyes, 28, of Santa Ana was found Thursday morning in a brushy area near a lot behind the Dairy Queen in the 200 block of North State College Boulevard by a customer who had parked there after ordering food at the drive-thru.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said an autopsy has been completed, but the cause of death was pending further investigation. Lt. Bob Dunn, a spokesman with the Anaheim Police Department, said there was no evidence or immediate sign of injury that would indicate her death was a homicide.
The vigil is expected to start at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Fourth Street and French Street followed by a procession to Sasscer Park.
