Consuming the Living, Dis (re) membering the Dead in the Butch/FTM Borderlands

On 31 December 1993, John Lotter and Marvin Thomas Nissen murdered three young people in a farmhouse in Humboldt, Nebraska. It is unlikely that this triple homicide would have received much attention in mainstream media, academic studies, or in lesbian, gay, and transgender publications had not one of those murdered been a gender-ambiguous young person who had lived for several years in a butch/ftm border zone.
