Murder gay sailor might have been caused by fear of outing

19 07 2009

Sailor August Provost was murdered at Camp Pendleton last month and even though the navy denied they have any reason to believe this had anything to do with him being gay, Provost’s family paints another picture. They think another soldier that was scared of being outed by Provost has shot him and lit a fire to destroy the evidence.According to his family he had a heated argument with the suspect a week before his killing and he had been harassed about his sexuality in the months prior to his death. Many LGBT activist say this is in indirect cause of” Don’t ask, Don’t tell”and I think they might be right here. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee has already called for a Congressional Inquiry in the murder. Hope the truth will prevail here.
