What happened to Sandy?

Age: 28

Sandy is a transgender woman from Chile, brought to Cincinnati in April 2005. She was whisked away by a wealthy man who wanted to marry her, but within 3 months she was arrested for soliciting an undercover cop. The officer verbally and physically harassed her then dropped her off on her “husband’s” doorstep although she pleaded otherwise.

In 2008 she was found dead from an accidental heroin overdose in the same house.
