While the cause of death initially was unspecified, a former lover of Alexis told RadarOnline that she suffered from AIDS. “Alexis was living with AIDS and she had an inoperable tumor and she had developed an infection,” Robert Dupont told Radar. “I was told that went to her liver and throughout her body.”

After her death, her family released a long statement, which read, in part, “She fiercely lived her reality in a world where it is dangerous to be a trans person - a world largely unready to accept differences among human beings, and where there is still the ugliness of violence and hostility towards people that we may not understand.”
