Horrible news to start a Monday moring with.
A gay mans body was found dead and tied to a lampost, beaten, doused with gasoline and burned alive.
28 year old Stuart Walkers remains was found at 5am on Saturday in Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.
Strathclyde Police confirmed the body had scorch marks and the victim had suffered massive injuries
According to Detective Inspector John Hogg, Ayr CID,: ‘Stuart had been out with friends in the Cumnock area during the night and was last seen alive by a family friend near to the fire station in Glaisnock Street around 2.30am hours on Saturday morning – nearly two and a half hours before he was found. Police are not ruling out he may have been the victim of a homophobic attack..
Kazza Sutherland, who used to work with Stuart, said, “I can’t believe this has happened to such a great guy. I hope they catch those who did this to him. Hopefully justice will be served and I hope those who did this go to hell.”
To think that any human being could do this to another for any reason, and especially because they are different is just simply insane.
