The body of missing Florida State University student Ryan Uhre has been found in a building on College Avenue in downtown Tallahassee, just steps away from the location where he disappeared more than two weeks ago.
According to WCTV, police discovered Uhre’s body inside the abandoned building after noticing one of the windows had not been boarded up.
Uhre’s disappearance caught the attention of South Florida Gay News publisher Norm Kent last week, who published an editorial claiming Uhre was gay, albeit not openly, and that the media’s initial reluctance to report that fact may have hindered the search. Kent believed Uhre could have possibly been the victim of a hate crime, gay kidnapping, or something of the sort.

@LifeNewbie20s: What on earth are you talking about? His sexual orientation could explain not only his disappearance but could help explain how he ended up dead. People typically don’t randomly end up dead in abandoned buildings unless foul play was involved. Not pursuing that angle simply because it may be distasteful for some is not only irresponsible of his family and the police who are heading this investigation but also extremely disrespectful to this young man whose life was cut short. All details of a person’s life are important when they go missing or end up murdered. What is more important here? Protecting the delicate sensibilities of certain people or finding out the truth?
Not to mention the fact that even if he isn’t gay, it is worth looking into anyone he was involved with gay or straight or whatever.
