    Stuart Walker, 28, was beaten, tied to a lampost and set alight.

    Stuart Walker from Cumnock, was found dead with "horrible injuries" near Caponacre Industrial Estate, Cumnock, just before 05:00 on Saturday.

    It is thought the 28-year-old had been beaten and burned.
    Who was with Stuart in the 2 hours before he was found dead?

    "The facts that we have confirmed at this time is that Stuart had been out with friends in the Cumnock area from Friday night into early Saturday morning and was last seen alive by a family friend near to the fire station in Glaisnock Street around 02:30 hours on Saturday morning," he said.

    Sounds as if Scotland has had its own Matthew Shepard crucifixion. Brutal.

    Just read about Matthew Shepard, I see WBC were up to their usual pathetic tricks. Can they not be prosecuted for hate crimes?
    Sorry OT

    Please also note that initial reports of Stuart being found tied to a lamppost are incorrect. His body was found lying next to a road.

    For the love of all things decent in this world. Poor Stuart Walker. Some people fail to believe that indeed even in this day and age you are targeted because of your sexual orientation.


    RIP dear young man.


    Meanwhile looks like Ryan Squierdo has a lovely family.

    From December 2012:

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-...-west-20626306

    A teenager who admitted killing a gay barman who had tried to comfort him over his confused sexuality has been jailed for 12 years.

    Ryan Esquierdo, 19, choked 28-year-old Stuart Walker to death at an industrial estate in Cumnock on 22 October last year before setting his body alight.

    He pleaded guilty to culpable homicide, after prosecutors accepted his claim of diminished responsibility.
