Are you up to date with this week’s news surrounding LGBT murders? No? My my, you must’ve been busy reading Sarah Palin’s Twitter account. So here’s what you missed: Devin Downey, 19, allegedly killed Pedro Solis-Astorga, 45, who he supposedly had sex with at a park in Pueblo, Colorado, because he didn’t want his friends to find out he’s a big ‘mo. Downey says that although they had consensual sex once, Solis-Astorga tried to rape him that night, so Downey’s friend William Baros Jr. murdered him in self-defense, though Downey got a few hits in. (Baros would end up dead himself later on; Downey insists it was a self-inflicted gunshot would, which took place after the twosome and another friend got drunk that night at Baros’ house. Ahem.) And secondly there’s Lucky Ward, a 46-year-old homeless man, accused of killing trans woman Gypsy (nee Carlos) Rodriguez last year — after DNA connected him to four strangulations and possibly others in the Houston area.
