    Savagely beaten, tied to a lamppost and burned alive: Horrific fate of hotel manager who was murdered ‘for being gay’

    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.

    It’s 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 victim’s 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.’

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

    She said: ‘Can’t 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.”

    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 can’t 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 I’m sure ur’s will be the brightest star in the sky xx R.I.P ma lovely.’

    The video was not shot in Uganda as assumed in the comment accompanying the video. The accent of the people sounds Nigerian. This looks more like the case of street justice for a thief.

    Until a new anti-homosexuality bill caused a wave of homophobia in Uganda, John and Paul could hold hands in the streets of the capital Kampala and kiss in night clubs.

    Then the nightmare started — people began insulting and then assaulting them, and then they had to run away to Kenya. The couple have been in Nairobi since May of last year.

    Like other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, they came to this urban jungle seeking anonymity, explained the official running a programme that looks after these refugees.

    His organisation, which last year alone looked after 67 LGBT cases in Kenya, did not want to be named for fear of endangering its refugees.

    Some have fled a strict application of Islamic law in Somalia, others are running from general sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo and yet others have fled a climate of growing hostility elsewhere in east Africa.

    Some hope to be able to find refuge in Western countries sympathetic to their plight, such as the United States.

    In December, President Barack Obama said that fighting discrimination against gays should be at the forefront of American diplomacy.

    And last month UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told African leaders they must respect gay rights, in an unusually outspoken statement at the African Union summit.

    “One form of discrimination ignored or even sanctioned by many states for too long has been discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity,” he said at the meeting in Addis Ababa.

    In Kampala, people “did not know we [gays] existed” until a member of parliament in 2009 proposed strengthening the law against homosexuality, which could already lead to a life sentence in prison.

    “People demonstrated against us, told us we were not human beings. We could not buy from shopkeepers,” recounted John, 26.

    But worse was to come.

    A screaming tabloid headline encouraged its readers to “hang” homosexuals and in October 2010 published the names, photos and addresses of more than 20 gays, including those of the couple.

    “People started disappearing,” said John, who was beaten up several times.

    Then Paul was attacked.

    “I was watching a film when I heard a lot of noise,” said the well-built 24-year-old. “People had broken into my place, armed with stones, sticks and machetes.”

    John, who was on his way to his boyfriend’s home, fled when he saw the attackers.

    “To me he was dead,” he remembers thinking of his partner.

    Paul owes his life to the intervention of the police, who however immediately jailed him. “I was physically abused, beaten, bleeding from everywhere,” he recounted with difficulty.

    His friend David Kato, a gay activist, intervened to get him freed.

    Paul, whose home had been trashed and who no longer dared set foot in his three electronics shops, kept on hoping the situation would improve.

    That is until Kato was brutally murdered just over a year ago, found bludgeoned to death at home outside Kampala on January 26, 2011.

    The killing sparked widespread international condemnation, including from Obama who decried such crimes as “unconscionable” and said: “LGBT rights are not special rights; they are human rights.”

    After Kato’s murder, Paul decided to join John who had gone into hiding in Busia, near the Kenyan border.

    Their fellow Ugandan Danie, 31, avoided getting beaten up before her arrest because she never revealed she was transgender.

    She was a civil servant in a prominent Ugandan institution. She also served, clandestinely, as point of contact for American and Canadian LGBT rights groups.

    When her secret sideline was found out she was jailed for five weeks.

    “They questioned me. ‘What are your very ultimate objectives?’ (they asked). I was accused of being an enemy to the government,” she told AFP.

    She was freed when a powerful uncle intervened and she fled to Kenya at the end of July 2011.

    When she talks to people back in Kampala they tell her that Ugandan intelligence operatives have been trying to track her down in Nairobi.

    LGBT refugees are in a particularly difficult position, said the official from the programme that helps them.

    They cannot return home where their lives are in danger. Nor can they settle in Kenya, where refugees are not allowed to work and where homosexuality is also illegal.

    The only solution is often to head to a third country.

    His NGO has over the past several years tried to make humanitarian organisations aware of the extent of the problem.

    “It’s a very slow process, people are very reluctant to take care of LBGT refugees as such. They feel other priorities are more important.”
