Posted on 1 Feb 2019

A Worcester-based transgender woman who was murdered earlier this month has been described by a friend as an LGBT hero.


Speaking to Worcester News, Connor Turner said of 51-year-old Amy Griffiths: "She didn't have a selfish bone in her body. She helped me through some difficult times when I was younger. I ended up on the streets for a bit. She found me outside a local shopping market and offered to cook me tea. Our friendship blossomed, she taught me how to love myself and care for myself. At the time I was coming out as bisexual. I was absolutely devastated when I heard about her death. I'm heartbroken.”

Ms Griffiths was found dead in her flat on 14 January. West Mercia Police said that she had suffered throat and head injuries.


Martin Saberi, 53, has been charged with her murder.
