In a statement paying tribute to their brutally murdered daughter, Ghey’s family said that the loss of her young life has left a “massive hole” in their family.

Ghey studied at the Birchwood Community High School. The headteacher of the school spoke on the murder, “We are shocked and truly devastated to hear of the death of Brianna”.

Even though, Ghey was known to be an out transgender, UK police has not found evidence of the attack being a hate crime. However, the investigations still continue.

Thus, her case is not registered under violent crimes against a woman.
