PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office has released the name of the suspect wanted in the murder of Dominique Rem'mie Fells, an African American transgender woman. Officials are searching for 36-year-old Akhenaton Jones.
Officials found Fells' dismembered body last week in the Schuylkill River, near a Southwest Philadelphia dock.
Police sources tell CBS3 dismembered legs, dry blood stains, trash bags and a knife with blood on it were found throughout a home on the 3900 block of Powelton Avenue. Sources also say the home had a strong odor of decomposition.
Activists said her murder is part of a disturbing trend.
At least seven transgender women have been murdered in Philadelphia since 2013.
