• Stabbed to death in his own home: Don Belton, "a distinguished writer and one of the leading black gay voices in academia". Rod 2.0 has more; again, interesting to read what the community thinks about this case. Reader dhampton100 says: "53 year old gay man having sex with a 25 year old bi-sexual man.
