Another Murder of Black gay man in D.C.

Last week we posted a missing notice about Anthony Perkins, 29, a Black gay man who was found shot to death in his car. This week the murder of another Black gay man brings yet another shocking pulse through the Black gay community of D.C. The body of Gordon Rivers, 47, was found on January 10th on the side of a rode with bullet wounds pierced through his body. The Metropolitan Police Department says there is no indication of a hate crime.

As with the case of Perkins, no leads have been identified. Though there is rumored to be a thug on a spree of robberies in the D.C. community who is alleged to be connected to the murder of Perkins.
