Trio charged in gruesome death of trans teen”

A Missouri teen who came out as transgender earlier this year and was brutally murdered lived with her alleged killers, the victim's family said.

The 17-year-old's burnt remains were found last week near the mobile home of Briana Caldera, one of the accused, in the rural area of Cabool in the USA state of Missouri. Both local and national media identified Steinfeld by a male name, but The TM Planet, a website focusing on transgender issues, identified her as Ally.

Steinfeld, who was born Joseph Matthew Seinfeld, had her eyes gouged out and was stabbed before her body was set on fire. Her body was burned in an attempt to hide evidence of the crime. The suspects are jailed and being held without bond. She was last heard from on September 1.

Her family reported her missing on September 14. after they were clueless about her whereabouts, the News-Leader reported.

Schauer, Vrba and Calderas fronted a Texas County courtroom Monday on charges including first-degree murder, armed criminal action and abandonment of a corpse.

Three others, including Andrew Vrba, 18, Isis Schauer, 18, and 24-year-old Briana Calderas, were earlier charged with first-degree murder and other counts. Steinfeld's remains were found near Calderas's trailer in Cabool, Mo., about 20 miles from Houston.

Three people have been arrested and charged with the gruesome murder of a Texas County Missouri trans teen Ally Steinfeld.

Upon investigation, and a confession from Schauer, police say Calderas led them to the murder weapon and the victim's cellphone.

Vbra admitted to repeatedly stabbing Steinfeld, gouging out her eyes and genitals... The women said he had bragged about the killing.

The three suspects are accused of burning Steinfeld's body.

Ashleigh Boswell, Steinfeld's sister, told Springfield's News-Leader that family members weren't sure if the teen's gender identity was a motive in the slaying.

Steinfeld's family described Ally as "a very loving, outgoing person" who 'didn't like conflict whatsoever.' .

On Tuesday, Steinfeld's Facebook page was filled with messages from mourners: "Rest in Peace, Ally". Who was fearless enough to live her truth in a very ignorant world.

Adding, 'I don't know your family. "Ally Lee, your community will always love you".
