    Family seeks justice for 'hate crime' that left gay LSUE student in critical condition

    • White had been talking to Seneca on Grindr for about a week.
    • White and Seneca planned to meet up in person Saturday.
    • Seneca picked up White at his apartment and took White to a residential location on Maryview Farm Road in Lafayette.
    • Seneca tortured White for an unknown amount of time.
    • Seneca called 911 and said he had murdered a man.
    • White was discovered naked in a bathtub with stab wounds to his neck, strangulation wounds, blunt force trauma to the back of his head and cuts so deep into his wrists that his hands were nearly severed.

    Police arrested 19-year-old Chance Seneca, of Lafayette, in connection with the stabbing. He was at the home when police arrived. He was charged with attempted second-degree murder.

    Seneca is being held in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on a $250,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear before a judge Tuesday.

    The police department is not investigating the incident as a hate crime.

    The poor critically injured victim, just looking for love and friendship. Prayers for his recovery. I'm afraid the damage from this insane attack will never be completely healed.

    Omg I just saw this on FB and had to see if WS had a thread. Following- as a parent of a child in the LGBTQ community this terrifies me. Justice needs to be served and I pray this boy fully recovers.

    I’m so thankful he is doing better and according to family has his usual sense of humor intact.
    Interesting that the police do not consider this a hate crime.... will definitely be paying attention.

    Friends and family say the victim in a weekend stabbing was targeted for being gay. Now, they want the charges upgraded to reflect that.

    The suspect in the case, Chance Seneca, is facing attempted second degree murder charges, but White's friends and family say he should be charged with a hate crime.

    According to the U.S Department of Justice, a hate crime is a crime motivated by bias against several classifications, including sexual orientation. A spokesperson for the Lafayette Police Department says detectives have not found any evidence so far that indicates this is a hate crime.

    The Lafayette Police Department confirms the investigation is still underway.

    Friends of Holden White believe attack was a planned 'hate crime'

    The above article was from June, and in looking for more recent info on his condition I noticed that Holden did a Facebook live with updates on how he's doing back in August. He seems to be doing quite well. Voice sounds good, he has some numbness in one hand, but the thing that bothers him the most is short-term memory problems. He was able to discuss the attack calmly and overall looks to be handling to situation amazingly well.
