BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont police say a man badly beaten at a homeless encampment in Burlington last week has died of his injuries.

Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo says in a statement that 38-year-old Amos Beede, of Milton, died Sunday at the University of Vermont Medical Center of injuries that included head trauma, facial fractures and broken ribs.

Del Pozo says Beede was a transgender man and a hate crime hasn’t been ruled out as a possible motive. But del Pozo says the investigation points to other possible motives as well. No one has been charged.

Police were called to the encampment near the Barge Canal on May 25 and found Beede lying on the ground.

The investigation is ongoing.

This story has been corrected to show the victim’s last name is Beede, not Beed, on final reference.
