It’s always sad to see one of the angels meeting an untimely death but somehow, around Xmas and the holidays it seems even more poignant and when it is as violent as the murder of Layia Lovely and her boyfriend.
The fact that the newspaper used mugshots of Layia (under her real name Avery Elzy) and her boyfriend, the unfortunately named Michael Hunt and the subsequent commentary at that papers website revealing their criminal record of theft, drug use and forgery, doesn’t detract from the fact, that they were killed and nobody has reasons yet. It seems a large amount of the TS community that we work with (in the adult industry) do have criminal records and associations with violent persons which is why we tend to see younger people, dying.
Layia had just worked once with Grooby Productions and I’m unaware of any other sites she’s appeared on. Frank returned to his home city of Indianapolis in July and managed to photograph a few new tgirl models, Layia being one and she featured on his site, Franks Tgirlworld in October.
When informed of her death, Frank stated; I am very saddened by this story.”
“I had just photographed her a few months ago. I remember that she was quiet at first but very nice. She told me she was a hair dresser on the North Side and that she would sometimes hire other TS if they were good with hair. She told me she had a husband and they had been together for a few years and that his family had accepted them.
She seemed like she really had her head on straight. I really liked her maturity.
I ran into Layia and Mona Lisa at the Circle in Indianapolis just before I left. They were Downtown checking out all of the motorcyclesas it was the weekend after the Moto GP Race. We chatted for a while and had coffee.
I am very saddened by this story.”
