Teenager not guilty of transsexual murder
Excerpt: But Hyatt, of Thornton Heath, insisted he had left her alive and well, although he admitted stealing her mobile phone, Freeview box and DVD player.
His barrister Joanna Greenberg QC told the court the victim had a habit of "taking men to her flat and engaging in intimacy" and was "quite good" at concealing her gender from them.
She suggested Miss Telesford could have died during a "kinky sex game" with another man after Hyatt had left the flat.

Call on Fox News Channel to Apologize for Crude, Dehumanizing Anti-Transgender Comments
On August 14, Fox News Channel aired a crude and obnoxious segment concerning the recent announcement of America's Next Top Model's first-ever transgender contestant. Isis, who will begin appearing on the new cycle of the popular CW program when it premieres on September 3, was interviewed exclusively in the current issue of Us Weekly.
Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett and Us Weekly Editor-at-Large Ian Drew spent the segment gratuitously insulting the America's Next Top Model contestant, using dehumanizing terminology, inaccurate and inappropriate pronouns and offensive references to her anatomy.
This segment can be viewed on YouTube.
