Hate Crime in Oklahoma -- Gay Man Murdered by White Supremacist

A few weeks ago news reports began to link the murder of Steven Domer with a white supremacist group. I worked with some folk to put together an LGBT community response. Then we got word that the police weren't backing the information in the news reports, and we had some insider information that suggested that it might not be a hate crime. Last year there was a hate crime hoax, so we wanted to be sure before we moved forward publicly. At the time, Rob Howard and I did release this statement.

Now more information is out. Read today's article in the Oklahoman here. Now the DA is saying that Domer was targeted because he was gay.

Here's more info on the investigation and the narrative that is developing.

The LGBT community has been closely monitoring this story and now will move to respond.
