In a live interview on State of the Nation with Jessica Soho, Marc Sueselbeck, condemned the murder as an act of brutality. Sueselbeck wondered aloud if God will ever forgive the suspect. Today he said

“How can I forgive him? I’m not in the position to forgive him…I have more anger in my heart than probably most of the people here,”

“The only person who is in that position is God and Jennifer. And forgiving means understanding, and I doubt that I would ever understand what he did.”

The death of Marc’s girlfriend has caused quite the outrage among the transgender community. Many, including her family are asking for justice to be delivered and FB pages with the same cause have been created.
