British Envoy Possible Hate Murder Victim

A British honorary consul in Jamaica found dead at his home may have been the victim of an antigay murder. John Terry (pictured) died of asphyxiation, with evidence of violence to his naked body and a threatening note to gay people everywhere.

Police sources say the note suggests that Terry may have been murdered at his home near Montego Bay Tuesday night because he was believed to be gay, according to The Sun.

"This is what will happen to ALL gays," said the note, according to the newspaper. The note was signed by "Gay-Man," and it also described Terry as a "batty-man," Jamaican slang for a gay person.

Terry was separated from his wife, with whom he had two children. He reportedly was often seen with men.

No suspects have been identified in the killing.
