MANHATTAN — A transgender woman who died Thursday, a week after she was found lying unconscious on a Chelsea street, was killed by someone beating her on the head, the Medical Examiner said Monday.

Brenda Bostick, 59, died of a blunt impact head injury to her head May 4 at 4:10 p.m., officials said.
