The vigils depicted Benedict as a trans-identified martyr who stood up to high school bullies, claiming that she died from head injuries sustained from a physical beating by these alleged bullies.

Antifa and transgender activists held nationwide vigils on Saturday and spread disinformation surrounding the death of Oklahoma nonbinary teen Dagny "Nex" Benedict.

The vigils depicted Benedict,16, as a trans-identified martyr who stood up to high school bullies, with the activists claiming that Benedict had died from head injuries sustained from a physical beating by these alleged bullies in the school's bathroom. This was not the cause of death.

However, it has been revealed that Benedict allegedly started the physical altercation and did not die from injuries after the beating. Benedict died the following day and his cause of death is still under investigation. Preliminary information from the medical examiner's office revealed that a complete autopsy was performed and Benedict did not die as a result of trauma. Toxicology results and other ancillary testing results are also pending.

Over the weekend, Antifa and transgender activists held vigils for Benedict across the United States. These groups claimed that Benedict had died a martyr in the face of transgender "hatred and bigotry." The vigils were held in Seattle, Oklahoma, Iowa, and other cities.

Seattle Antifa militant, Christina Devitt, spread the false narrative in a post on Instagram that Benedict had died from head injuries sustained during the beating. She said that Benedict had the authority to start the physical altercation, claiming that it was an act of self-defense.

The Seattle vigil for Benedict was held at Cal Anderson Park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, which was the site of the infamous Antifa autonomous zone known as "CHAZ" or "CHOP."

Benedict died on Feb. 8 after collapsing on the floor while getting ready to go to an appointment.

On Feb. 7, Benedict was involved in a fight with four other students at a High School in Owasso, Oklahoma. The fight lasted approximately 2 minutes and was broken up by others in the school. Initial reports were that Benedict had been bullied leading up to the incident, though it was later shown via bodycam footage that Benedict started the fight.

While mainstream media and transgender activists were quick to allege that Benedict died from head trauma and bullying, police body cam footage revealed that Benedict allegedly started the fight.

Police interviewed Benedict in a hospital room and asked her about what happened leading up to the fight. Benedict said that she didn't know the girls prior to ISD. Benedict claims a group of three girls were making fun of her which resulted in Benedict allegedly dousing the girls with water. The girls were freshmen while Benedict and her friend were sophomores.

The water she poured came from her own water bottle. "So you squirted them with water, threw water on them, whatever it was," the officer clarified. "Then at that point what happened?"

"They came at me, they grabbed me, they grabbed onto my hair, I grabbed on to them. I threw one of them into a paper towel dispenser, and then they got my legs out from under me and got me on the ground and started beating the sh*t out of me. And then my friends tried to jump in and help. I'm not sure, I blacked out," said Benedict.

Benedict went home from the hospital that day. By the next day she was dead. After her death was reported, trans activists pushed the narrative that Benedict was bullied and beaten for being non-binary and then died from those injuries.

They went as far as to blame those who speak out against gender identity and child sex changes for creating an atmosphere that elicits negative sentiment against trans persons.
