No Evidence of Homophobia Found in Murder of Gay Man

No Evidence of Homophobia Found in Murder of Gay Man


Police in Scotland have found no evidence that Stuart Walker, who died Saturday after being burned, was targeted for being gay.

The Daily Telegraph reports on the investigation, which found no signs of homophobia, although police do not believe it was a random murder. No motive has been established yet.

"Detectives would not discuss his injuries, but he is known to have been set on fire in the attack near his home in Cumnock," reports the Telegraph. A passerby found his body with horrific injuries early Saturday morning.

Walker, a 28-year-old barman, had been interviewed in August over an alleged indecency incident involving a 12-year-old boy, media reported this week. According to the Telegraph, the matter was still under consideration when he died, but police said there was no suggestion the issue was related to his murder.
