Tracy Lynn Garner, the transgender woman convicted in the death of a Georgia woman after she gave her silicone butt injections, has died.
The Mississippi Department of Corrections said in a statement Monday that an autopsy will be conducted on the remains of Tracy Lynn Garner, who died Sunday. She was 58 and had served less than three and a half years of a life sentence.
Garner was convicted by a jury of depraved-heart murder in the death of Karima Gordon, an Atlanta-area resident who died eight days after receiving the injections in Jackson in 2012. Depraved-heart murder is a killing caused by reckless disregard for human life.
