Clarion Ledger reports. He was transferred to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he died. The Jackson Police Department is investigating his death as a homicide, and is still searching for suspects and trying to determine a motive.“Groves was a farmer for the Knights and Orchids Society’s garden program and a plant-soil scientist who loved agriculture and animals,” notes a press release from the National Black Justice Coalition.The society, the NBJC, and several of the victim’s friends called out local media for misgendering and deadnaming Groves, who is at least the 39th trans, nonbinary, or gender-nonconforming person to die by violence in the U.S.
