WILMINGTON, N.C. (TCD) -- Human remains recovered in late January were recently identified as those of a missing woman who was allegedly killed by a man she met online.
KC Johnson, a transgender woman, was last seen on Friday, Jan. 13, on the 1300 block of Tradd Court in Wilmington, and was reported missing the next day. The victim’s partner, Bulla Brodzinski, was allegedly the last person who saw her alive.
