The Post Millennial can exclusively report that the suspect in the Easter Sunday stabbing murder of a Portland cab driver is a trans person with a history of threatening behavior.
Moses Jacob Lopez, who presents as a woman and appears to have addresses in both Portland and Coos Bay, Ore., has been charged with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon. The deceased victim, who has not been named, was identified by Radio City Cab as one of its veteran drivers. Lopez allegedly stabbed him to death during a taxi ride.
Days before the brutal murder stabbing in southeast Portland, the 30-year-old allegedly threatened another person with a weapon but was quickly released without bail. On April 3, Lopez was charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of menacing in Coos County, Ore. After missing a court hearing on April 6, a warrant was issued for her arrest—three days before she allegedly went on to commit murder.
