A homeless transgender woman was found beaten to death outside the Miami City Ballet building, and now police say a Florida man has been charged with her murder.

On the morning of April 23, an employee of the ballet company spotted what he believed to be someone sleeping outside of the building and tried to wake her up, according to an arrest report obtained by WPLG.

However, the victim didn’t respond, which is when the man noticed blood around her body and he called 911.

Emergency personnel responded to the scene and rolled the victim to a supine position, which is when they saw trauma and blood to her face and head, which was partially covered with a sweater, authorities said.

The victim was identified as Andrea Dosspassos and she was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:56 a.m.

Detectives were able to obtain surveillance video from the area, which showed Dosspassos laying down outside the building around midnight, according to the report.

Later in the morning, a man, later identified as 53-year-old Gregory Fitzgerald Gibert, allegedly could be seen in the video looking around the area, including at the victim. He eventually picked up a metal pipe from the ground and then sat down on a nearby bench, officials said.

He later walked over to where Dosspassos was sleeping and started hitting her with the pipe on her head and face, according to the officials. Video shows Gibert standing over her and then “manipulating her body” before discarding the pipe in a nearby trash can, the report states.


While inspecting the victim’s body, authorities said they found two wooden sticks lodged into her nostrils, one of which exited over her right eye. A puncture wound was also located on the victim’s chest.

Police were able to recover the murder weapon from the trash can and they started a search for Gibert, the report states.

During the early morning on April 23, Gibert was found and arrested.

Gibert was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and was charged with second-degree murder.

According to police, the victim legally changed her name and sex in October 2023. However, it’s unclear whether this was a hate crime or if there was another motive for the killing.

Jail records show the suspect was on probation at the time of his arrest for attempted armed robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
