Transgender Woman’s Killer: ‘All Gay Things Need to Die’

Zapata

Allen Andrade, the man who brutally murdered Colorado transgender woman Angie Zapata in her apartment, offered another girlfriend a chilling statement that reflected his attitude towards gays, according to Greeley police detective Greg Tharp:

“When his girlfriend told him her cellphone was dying during a conversation with him, he said that was gay and ‘all gay things need to die,’ Tharp said.”

Andrade has also described Zapata using the word “it”.

Andrade appeared at a preliminary hearing on Thursday. He’s charged with murdering Zapata after he discovered she was transgender.

According to the Denver Post: “Allen Andrade told his girlfriend that he ‘snapped’ when he learned the woman he had oral sex with the night before was biologically a man. Indeed, until he confronted 18-year-old Angie Zapata in her Greeley apartment in July, Andrade had no reason to believe she was born Justin Zapata, Andrade’s attorney argued Thursday at his preliminary hearing in Weld County District Court…Only when Andrade grabbed at Zapata’s crotch did he discover the truth. But when she smiled at him and said, ‘I’m all woman,’ it drove an enraged Andrade to commit murder, attorney Annette Kundelius said.”

Kundelius was unsuccessful in arguing that a first-degree murder charge be dropped to second degree. She was also unsuccessful in removing a felony bias-motivated crime charge that would extend the sentence.

The next hearing is set for November 6.

    I’m so disgusted.

    And…

    “Allen Andrade told his girlfriend that he ‘snapped’ when he learned the woman he had oral sex with the night before was biologically a man”

    His girlfriend? There is a woman out there stupid enough to be with him after this?!

    I sincerely hope this animal gets a life sentence in prison — only cut short by dying exactly the same way his victim did. That would be a small, small measure of justice.

    hmmm… coming across that occasional murderous trick is, unfortunately, one of the occupational hazards of being a trannie (me being an ex trannie – so i should know ya know) — so be careful out on those streets girls…

    TYLER,

    this has been an ongoing debate on this blog. People of my generation and older did not make the great distinction between transvestite gay males (drag queens) and transsexual women. Actually, I guess many so-called straight people don’t make a great distinction–just like that murderous motha’ fucka’ whose picture is at the top of this thread.

    Yep, the defense is trotting out the gay/trans panic defense. (From today’s Denver Post.)

    “At best, this is a case about passion,” Kundelius said. “When (Zapata) smiled at him, this was a highly provoking act, and it would cause someone to have an aggressive reaction.”

    ‘Cuz smiling at someone — someone you’re cheating on your girlfriend with — is obviously legitimate grounds for bashing their head in with a fire extinguisher.

    BTW, this is a prime example about how even though we may obsess over hair-splitting distinctions within the LGBT communities, those who hate us don’t.

    This vile garbage of a straight man is a pillar of evil in society and has the audacity to claim “all gay things must die”?!!
    Seriously, the bitterness I feel when I read/hear these things thrown around by evil straight men (the major reason why the planet is so screwed) leaves me ready and willing to viciously fight back. Damn I’m angry.

    Come on guys, this killer is your typical bottom of the pile, piece of shit, ill-bred who thinks nothing of cheating on his girlfriend. What can one expect? Some pillar of society. He was always headed to prison from birth, look at the state of him. Neo-nazi material at best. If not a transexual then he’d at some stage have murdered another straight man in a fight on the street over drugs. He’s a walking stereotype of a single-celled organism and that’s an insult to true single-celled organisms.

    I’m sure he’ll have a terrific time getting fucked senseless in prison. Here’s hoping.

    Yet another imbecile who hates LGBT and has done something that will ensure he will spend the rest of his life holding his ankles over his ears. **sigh**

  9. says

    Here’s hoping he rots in prison getting repeatedly raped.

    But a word of warning to trans people, it will always be safer to ask permission than forgiveness. For your own safety, please be upfront about being trans, you never know when it will turn out to be a crazed bigoted sociopath who would kill you if he found out.
