Investigators say they're looking for a person of interest in the death of a transgender woman from Pahokee.

Hendry County Sheriff's deputies are trying to find 29-year-old Jamson Richemond. They believe he may be tied to the death of Bolman "Bee Love" Slater.

Investigators found the 24-year-old Slater's body in a burned out vehicle on September 4 in Hendry County.

Authorities also say Richemond, who is from Belle Glade, is a person of interest in the death of Jamal “Jampack” Hubert.

The body of the 30-year-old was found in a canal in Palm Beach County.

“It is believed that Richemond may have had some involvement in Hubert’s death," Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden said in a statement.

If you have any information on either case you are urged to call the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office at 863-674-5600.
