Investigators in Owasso, Oklahoma, are investigating the death of 16 year-old Nex Benedict, one day after a physical altercation with other students.

Nex Benedict’s mother, Sue Benedict, told The Independent the teen suffered bruises all over their face and eyes after they had gotten in a fight with three older girls in the bathroom. It is not yet clear if their gender identities had a role in the altercation and police don’t believe the assault lead to Nex’s death.

Nex had experienced several months of bullying from students, according to their mother.

“I didn’t know how bad it had gotten,” Sue Benedict stated.

Anti-LGBTQ violence has been on the rise in recent years, according to law enforcement researchers, coinciding with growing anti-LGBTQ sentiment from conservative politicians pretending to be Christians.

It’s unclear if Jesus will wash this blood off.
