I grew up in the South and know for a fact that even though you may be gay, sometimes you cannot escape your hillbilly, trailer-trash roots. Sometimes fate will NOT allow you to host fabulous parties or have a green thumb. It will lead you instead to commit heinous crimes in a house on wheels (even if you are good-looking, an Eagle scout and an honor student).


Gay N.C. College Student Charged With Murder

A North Carolina gay man has been charged with murder after he allegedly shot an older man whom he had been living with in an Alabama mobile home park, the (N.C.) News & Observer reports.

Zachary Stirewalt, 21, was arrested on Saturday and charged with the murder of Daniel Turman, a 43-year-old man whom the young man had been living with in Montgomery, Ala. When police arrived on the scene, Turman was found dead after being shot several times. According to Lt. Regina Duckett of the Montgomery Police Department, the authorities arrived at Turman’s mobile home at 6:30 a.m. and found that Stirewalt was still at the scene. He was taken into custody as a person of interest and later charged with the crime.

Although investigators have not released a motive, Duckett told the Observer that Turman offered the Appalachian State University student a place to stay after he recently left home and had no place to live. The newspaper points out that Stirewalt, who is a former Eagle Scout, is an aspiring commercial photographer and was an intern with Go Studios in New York City last summer. He was also an honor student and had been studying technical photography while in college.

  1. It doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight. You should never hide the meth from your boy/girl friend.
