BBC newscaster Ray Gosling revealed on the air Tuesday that he killed a gay
lover who was dying of AIDS, sparking a police
investigation into the admission.
Gosling, 70, said that he suffocated the unnamed lover in a hospital some time ago with a pillow. He shared what he called a "secret" during a segment about death on the BBC East Midlands' Inside Out program, according to the Daily Mail.
"I killed someone once ... He was a young chap, he'd been my lover and he got AIDS," said Gosling.
Gosling, an award-winning broadcaster of TV and radio programs, said that he had no regrets about the decision because the man was in terrible pain and doctors called his situation terminal.
The Nottinghamshire police launched an investigation into Gosling's admission. The BBC has pledged to cooperate fully.
