Default Trans woman pushed under King's Cross tube train

The victim of the Kings Cross tube death on Monday evening has been named as Sonia Burgess, who was a trans woman.

She died after being hit by a tube train during the rush hour.

A 34-year-old woman, Nina Kanagasingham, of Chichele Rd, Cricklewood has been charged with murder. Police said yesterday that the death is not being treated as a hate crime.

Ms Burgess, 63, was described as gender variant by her family, who said she was known to friends, family and work colleagues as both Sonia and David.

She was human rights lawyer who lived on Shaftesbury Avenue in central London and had two daughters and a son, all adults.

In a statement, her family said: “Sonia (David) was a loving and wonderful person and will be missed deeply. We would appreciate being given space to come to terms with our loss.”

Ms Burgess’ Luqmani Thompson and Partners in Wood Green, described her as an “enormously talented practitioner, an inspiration to a generation of lawyers practising in this field, and a great friend”.

The statement added that she was a “pioneer in setting legal tests and trends in genuinely trailblazing cases”.

Investigating officer Detective Superintendent Ashley Croft, said: “We would like to express our condolences to Sonia’s (David’s) family following this tragedy.

“Family liaison officers are working closely with Sonia’s family, providing them support and assistance during this difficult time.”

That's messed up. But I'll admit that I'm really wondering why the younger woman pushed her in front of a train more than anything.
