The body of Love was found in a burned vehicle in Clewiston on September 4.

Although detectives are still investigating what the motives may be, Love’s best friend said he believes the she was targeted because she was transgender. A sentiment others in the community believe could be true. The sheriff’s office said they can’t label it as such until they confirm the motive.

Detectives are investigating a Facebook post made before the crime. It said, “Somebody need to kill Bee Love.” The sheriff’s office said they are looking into it. It’s unclear if that post is related to Richardson.

“We something … we really go after it,” Whidden said. “We really want to solve this case, those responsible to pay for what they’ve done.”
