Before playing for the Los Angeles Clippers, before playing at North Carolina, before attending high school in North Carolina, Reggie Bullock was born in Baltimore.

Bullock’s ties to that city, sadly in this case, remain.

Meghan McCorkell of CBS Baltimore:

A broken necklace and a pool of blood remain in the alley where police found the body of 26-year old Mia Henderson.

They were serving a search warrant along Piedmont Avenue when the lifeless body of the transgender woman was discovered.

“We do know that there was trauma to the body to indicate that there was a homicide,” said Major Dennis Smith with Baltimore City police.

Henderson’s legal name is Kevin Long.

WJZ has learned her brother is NBA player Reggie Bullock.

Bullock tweeted:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bullock and his family.

    Best wishes to him and his family

    BTW, if she was “killed”, then obviously police suspect homicide.

      well no you can be “killed” in a car accident or any number of scenarios that aren’t homicide

    Is it his sister or brother ?

    She was transgender. So technically his brother

      Think it depends which came first as to brother or sister. But he’s calling the victim brother, so let’s respect that part.

      The post title was his sister was murdered, yet the story said his brother. So confused. At what point do these transgenders offically become women?

      • shanelsweet - Jul 17, 2014 at 5:31 PM

        Whenever they want to become women.

    I live in MD and work in Baltimore city.
    No joke, as a 45 year old man who doesn’t often blink, i can tell you there are many streets in Baltimore i avoid walking down.

    In a hilarious side note, the Mayor of our City walked down some tough streets to show it’s safe…..of course she had half the police force and camera crews by her side.
    Our murder rate is just unacceptable…..

    All the best to Mr Bullock in this trying time.

      I’ve walked on tough streets of Baltimore and DC at night, walked around Compton. Never got worried until I walked into a Walmart in the middle of Louisiana one night. THAT was freaky.

      • shanelsweet - Jul 17, 2014 at 5:33 PM

        OMG! Preach it! Never go to Walmart after dark. That’s where every crook looking for easy money hangs out.

      SRB is an absolute joke and has no business being in office!

    • realfootballfan - Jul 18, 2014 at 3:32 AM

      One of those tough cities I wouldn’t walk down the street at night. Baltimore definitely on that list like Memphis, Stockton, CA, Detroit, Philadelphia, Oakland, and a few others.

  5. cueghost - Jul 17, 2014 at 10:57 AM

    I wonder how many Ravens are involved in this?

    Just in joe flacco does the ray rice and murdered her

    • money2long - Jul 17, 2014 at 11:04 AM

      Did anyone else have a hard time understanding this?
      I’m sure it would’ve been funny though.

    • bigmeechy74 - Jul 17, 2014 at 12:44 PM

      are you mentally retarded?

  7. floreskins - Jul 17, 2014 at 11:12 AM

    Yo, where Wallace at?

    • titansbro - Jul 17, 2014 at 12:05 PM

      how anyone could thumb down this comment is beyond me.

      • floreskins - Jul 17, 2014 at 12:28 PM

        Not fans of one of the best shows ever, it seems. Guess they prefer The Bachelor.

      • titansbro - Jul 17, 2014 at 1:05 PM

        people disappoint me mostly

    I’m not too big on the transgender seen or any of that at all but he was in the family and a loss is a lost my book so God bless him and his family sorry about the loss of your brother/sister. She is a place where your soul is a piece and she’ll be treated with respect for what kinda person lived by her soul and mind, not by her cover as should all of us. We should all take a lesson from this and live our lives as such.

    Summertime in Bmore; O’s , 12 O’ clock boys, snowballs and a skyrocketing murder rate. Damn winter can’t get there fast fast enough for charm city, keeps the fools inside.

    Who cares if it’s a man or woman? A human being was murdered. That’s all you need to know about the situation, besides that Bullock loved his sibling all the same.

    Some of you are so judgemental it’s sick.

    • money2long - Jul 17, 2014 at 3:32 PM

      That wasn’t necessary to say now.
      The headline reads it was his sister, yet the story gives different details.
      It’s only natural to question what the victim was.
      There’s no judgment in that. Rather, simply trying to gather the facts.

      • kevindoc593 - Jul 17, 2014 at 4:10 PM

        No, you’re trolling and stop it.

        It’s not only natural to question what the victims gender was you want to know why?
        Because the details are clearly stated in the Story, She is transgender not that hard to understand.

      • money2long - Jul 17, 2014 at 4:28 PM

        i don’t have to defend this. you’re going overboard.

      • realfootballfan - Jul 18, 2014 at 3:34 AM

        The story said it was a transgender woman, which means technically it was a man although he was living his life otherwise. Not very ahrd to follow since the blurb explained it right there.
