Authorities in San Bernardino County were investigating the slaying of a transgender woman and YouTube reality star who was found dead in her Fontana apartment.

Coroner’s officials said Wednesday that 31-year-old Domonique Newburn, whose birth name was Daymond Watford, had sustained trauma.

Newburn was found dead Tuesday after residents called police reporting a disturbance.

Police said witnesses reported seeing a man leaving Newburn’s apartment and taking off in a black Mercedes sedan, which may have belonged to Newburn. The car was found abandoned Wednesday at a San Bernardino park.

Newburn appeared under her stage name “Domonique Duffy” in the premiere episode of “Hollywood Houseboys,” a reality show about a group of young, black gay men trying to make it in the entertainment industry.
