ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A vigil was held in Downtown Albuquerque Sunday night for Zakaria Fry, the transgender woman who was found murdered in February along with her roommate.


Fry's body, along with that of Eugene Carrell Ray, was discovered weeks after they both were reported missing.

The vigil was held at Effex, which was covered in balloons and other reminders of Fry. Bunnie Cruz helped organized the vigil, even though she never met Fry.

"I didn't know Zakaria, but in our trans community we know who each other are. But I didn't know her personally," Cruz said.

Police arrested James Knight in connection to the murders.
