Murder Came Before Suicide Attempt

Gay Man Shot Parents After Breakup

A broken heart led to a gruesome and troubling murder in South Africa:

A gay student shot dead his parents to spare them grief, according to a report handed up in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

A psychiatric report said Grant Harris wanted to commit suicide after his male lover he had shared the garage with at his parents’ Deep River home left him.

The purpose of the alleged murders had been to spare his parents the grief resulting from his suicide.

The report said his relationship with his parents had become strained, after he revealed to them about four years ago that he was homosexual.

Harris has since been released from a psychiatric hospital and will stand trial next month. Even our sick twisted minds can’t think of a punchline for this one.
