Scruffypup saidHe doesn't look like the typical Gold Coast patron.
Where is the evidence this is a "hate" crime though?
He could be a Gold Coaster, that place is quite a variety. Where he was found, on Mansfield just north of Santa Monica blvd, a block over on the south side of SM blvd is The Zone, a no frills 'bath house', maybe he went there after leaving the bar and was on foot walking home, His bf said he called, I am thinking the bf would not tell the press his bf left a bath house, only to the police. Maybe this couple had an 'open relationship' after 14 years of being together. This guy was listed as a john joe in the hospital, he had no ID
Something hasn't been revealed about the night he was assaulted.
