We feel sick.

On Saturday, 28-year-old gay bar worker Stuart Walker was beaten, burned to death, and then left by the side of a road in Ayshire, Scotland.

It is believed that Stuart was a victim of a homophobic attack, and an investigation is currently taking place.

Here's what Detective Inspector John Hogg had to say about it:

”Stuart had been out with friends in the Cumnock area earlier 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."

”It is imperative that we find out where he was between 2.30am and 4.50am hours, who he was with and why this happened to him. From our enquiries so far, we understand that there may have been a number of house parties in the nearby Netherthird housing estate in the early hours of the morning - between 2am and 3am hours."

”At this time we do not know if these parties are linked to our investigation or not, so again, any information on that is important. Officers are checking CCTV and carrying out door to door in the area and we would encourage anyone with information to approach them or to call Ayr Police Office."

Terrible. We truly hope they find whoever is responsible for this horrifying murder.

Our thought and prayers go out to Stuart's family, friends, and loves ones during this unimaginably difficult time.

Rest in peace, Stuart.

    This is bullying to its culmination….this must end. These people must pay for this.



  2. 2

    This is so awful!!! I hope they find whoever did this and bring them to justice!! Poor guy and his poor grieving family. ='(



  3. 3

    It is awful, but I would like to hear more about the investigation before jumping to the assumption that it is a hate crime - is there solid reasons to believe it was a homophobic attack?



  4. 4

    Re: rosebud99 – Well put and thank you. I agree….this crime is horrible irrespective of his sexual orientation. Would really appreciate reporting facts without assumption. What are the FACTS that support the statement "It is believed that Stuart was a victim of a homophobic attack"? Hate crime or not, it is horrible what happened to this young man. Prayers for his family.

    Homophobic attack! Wow this was someones baby. This is plain crazy and disgusting. This needs to stop for sure. Where they on drugs? How do you have the nerve to do that. Assholes.



  6. 6

    Why does it have to have been a "homophobic attack" Perhaps it was a hook up gone bad or any number of other reasons none of which having anything to do with his sexuality. It is very sad to say the least.



  7. 7

    This is DISGUSTING.



  8. 8

    I am with everybody else, this may have been a hurt lover or God knows what. No matter why this man died it is sad. Also sad is that Perez would have never posted this man's murder if he didn't think it had to do with this guys sexuality.



  9. 9

    Why are people here taking the time to make a point that Perez said it was a a homophobic attack? Why is that the focus? A man was burned to death. It really doesn't matter why. I don't care if Perez said it was because the victim was black. A person was burned to death!

    Actually, according to the news in Scotland, the police have said that they've found nothing to suggest a homophobic crime. It's a pretty dodgy area anyway, so it might not have anything to do with his sexual orientation. It's absolutely horrible either way, and I applaud Perez for the way he brings attention to gay rights issues, but he shouldn't jump to conclusions that this is one - it just isn't responsible reporting to do so.



  11. 11

    You don't know the whole story. He molested a boy and the boys family took action.

    Re: kitkat90 – Well said KitKat.



  13. 13

    That's TERRIBLE !!!!!! WTF is wrong w/people.!.!.!.
    So sad - Peace 2 your loved ones -



  14. 14

    Just wrong.



  15. 15

    Re: SpiceGuy – You make the point everyone else is…..! As you said…a man was burned to death and it does not matter why. That is the point. Perez is jumping to conclusions without any FACTS so why go there? Why not just report what is fact…that a man was burned to death?



  16. 16

    There's a lot of stupid skin heads there. Very sad. RIP.

    Re: SClub7 – Somehow the fact that you are equating being gay with child molesting just shows how ignorance still prevails in this world….I will remind you as I have time and time again on this blog, the majority of child molestors are so-called "heteros"…..Please, do not assume just because someone is gay they like children…like all normal people, most want relationships with consenting ADULTS!! Thank you.



  18. 18

    "our thought and prayers" So fitting that you said thought because it seems you only have one. There is no evidence this had anything to do with his sexual orientation. Your attempt to use his death for your agenda is appalling.



  19. 19

    What's really horrific is that if this had happened to a straight bar worker, you would not have posted it. Very Sad. I hope they catch the sick-o's that did this.



  20. 20

    This is really bizarre. It's not that far from Glasgow where I am, I go to uni with ppl from the area. Its a horrible murder and anything this savage seems really rare around here but there is no indication of the motive. The closest the police have gotten to suggesting its anything to do with sexuality was saying that they're not ruling anything out. It could have been a robbery gone wrong, it could have been random, it could have been anything.



  21. 21

    Hey Perez- why do you never post anything about attacks done on NON gay people? There are plenty of those stories out there. If gays want equality, quit putting them up on a pedestal.



  22. 22

    Can you believe that this is happening in the 21st Century?



  23. 23

    I cant believe this is happenning! What makes straight people so great that they think that can do this? i hope they find the responsible for this and get punish for it.



  24. 24

    Perez thinks that anytime a gay person is murdered it's automatically a hate crime because they are gay. WHATEVER.



  25. 25

    No mario, it is NOT beleived to be a homophobic attack. Do your research ya fucking moron. All coz hes gay it Has to be ho9mophobic. You make me sick



  26. 26

    This made me sick to my stomache. How sad. Another laugh that could have done amazing things for this world snuffed out before even having a chance. All because of L

    Stuff like this makes me sick, It supposed to happen in some very primitive third world country. Not in my backyard! Hope these people who are responsible for this will be punished, the same as they did to their victim and not given a second chance, as they denied their victim!



  28. 28

    IF HE WAS HARASSING PEOPLE AND TRYING TO PICK UP DUDES AND ACTING OPENLY GAY HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED



  29. 29

    Re: MarioMonjack – Its disgusting that people like you are alive. no one deserves to be burned alive, regardless. and what is "acting" openly gay? not even your dumb ass deserves that. your mom must be proud of the nothing you turned out to be, ignorant fool



  30. 30

    I just read thought this story and all the comments, I'm horrified!! I live not far from Ayrshire and have to say that in no way is it confirmed to be a hate crime and think it is highly unlikely it is!! Scotland would be extremely mortified if it were a hate crime!! This is a senseless, horrific crime and I hope the culprit is brought to swift justice. We are all praying for this young man and his family and friends! What is happening to the world?!



  31. 31

    This is so incredibly evil that I really don't know what to say.



  32. 32

    Re: lampy – "It supposed to happen in some very primitive third world country (sic)"? Yes, because your extreme ignorance and prejudice makes you seem so evolved.



  33. 33

    Absolutely disgusting. Hate crime or not.



  34. 34

    It is not even sure if this happened because he was gay. nevertheless. this should not happen to anyone! Gay or Straight!!
