    Default Man Beaten and Burned Alive For Being Gay

    when will it fucking end.

    we claim we live in a modern society and yet this shit happens all the time.

    A gay man who was killed and left at the side of the road with 'horrific' injuries could have been the victim of a homophobic attack, it has emerged.

    Itís believed Stuart Walker, 28, was beaten and burned alive before he was tied to a lamppost and left there in the early hours of Saturday morning.

    His charred remains were found by a member of the public at 5am on Saturday in Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.

    Detectives today launched a murder inquiry following the grim discovery, with streets in a nearby industrial estate sealed off as part of the ongoing investigation.

    Strathclyde Police confirmed the body had scorch marks and the victim had suffered horrific injuries.

    A spokesperson for the force said relatives of Mr Walker, the former assistant manager at the Royal Hotel in, Cumnock, have been informed of his death.

    Strathclyde Police would not rule out that Mr Walker had been murdered because of his sexuality and were now closely examining all aspects of the victimís life.

    Detective Inspector John Hogg, Ayr CID, said: '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.'

    Tributes: Flowers were left at the scene where Mr Walker's charred body was discovered tied to a lampost

    Kazza Sutherland used to work with Mr Walker at the Royal Hotel.

    She said: 'Canít believe this is happened to such a great guy.

    'I hope they catch those who did this to him. Hopefully justice will be served and I hope those who did this go to hell.Ē

    The popular former Cumnock Academy pupil was the subject of countless heartfelt tributes on a Facebook page set up in his honour.

    On tribute left by Amanda Lindsay, said: 'Poor Stuart canít believe ur life ended in such a horrific way xx a young man who always had a smile on his face & put a smile on everybody elses face too xx Iím sure urís will be the brightest star in the sky xx R.I.P ma lovely.'

    Horrific. It's not definite it was because of his sexuality, but whatever reason it's awful.

    Officers say they were investigating victim's lifestyle

    Add to My Stories Share Horrific attack: Stuart Walker's body was found on an industrial estate

    An 18-year-old man is being held by police investigating the death of barman Stuart Walker whose charred body was found at the weekend.
    Strathclyde Police confirmed that the man has been detained less than a week after Mr Walker's beaten and burned corpse was discovered in Cumnock, Ayrshire.
    A police spokesman said: 'We can confirm that an 18-year-old man is currently detained in connection with this inquiry.'

    Stuart Walker suffered 'horrible injuries' after a 'violent and sustained', attack according to officers.
    He was found dead at Caponacre industrial estate in the town.

    The openly gay barman is said to have been battered and set on fire in an apparent homophobic attack, and may have been sexually assaulted before he was killed, detectives have indicated.
    Detectives have not revealed any specific injuries in case they proved to be 'prejudicial in the future'.

    The barman's death has sent shockwaves through the local community.

    And the killing has become a cause celebre on the internet with more than 12,000 people leaving messages on Facebook pages set up in his honour, with posts from friends and family as well as from strangers as far afield as California, France and Finland.

    Thousands more took to Twitter to write messages of condolence to his family.

    However, it has come to light that the 28-year-old had only recently been questioned over an alleged incident involving a 12-year-old boy in August and a report was sent to the procurator fiscal.
    Police have stressed that there does not appear to be any link between the claims and Mr Walker's murder.

    A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said today: 'There was a report sent to the procurator fiscal in relation to an alleged indecency on a 12-year-old boy.
    In loving memory: Flowers left at the scene in Cumnock, Ayrshire, where Mr Walker was found dead
    'There's no suggestion that this incident is in any way connected to the murder.'
    A spokesman for the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service added: 'We can confirm that the Procurator Fiscal at Ayr received a report concerning a 28-year-old male in connection with an alleged incident on 20 August 2011. The case is now closed.'
    It is believed that there will be no further investigation into the incident.

    Mr Walker's body was discovered shortly before 5am on Saturday and it is thought that he was set upon after walking home from a house party.

    Police said there was nothing to suggest Mr Walker had been the victim of a homophobic crime.

    However, detectives admitted that they were not ruling anything out as no clear motive had been established and earlier in the week commander John Thomson said the victimís lifestyle was the Ďmain focusí of his inquiries

    Importantly, Mr Thompson said he did not believe 'it was a random attack by someone who will strike again' and said there was a 'possibility of a sexual assault'.

    Reports have suggested Mr Walker was beaten and ignited before his death.

    Prime Minister David Cameron urged the public to help solve the murder yesterday after Labour MP Sandra Osborne (Ayr Carrick and Cumnock) raised his case at PM's Questions in the Commons.

    Sending his condolences to Mr Walker's family, Mr Cameron said: 'It was once said that the police are the public and the public are the police.

    'The police cannot solve crimes without the help of the public and I hope everyone will cooperate in the best way they can.'
    The investigation continues.
