Manhunt in New Orleans After Triple Slaying

“New Orleans police have identified three black men who were gunned down in a 7th Ward home. The men were apparently gay, one possibly transgender, and police ‘believe the three victims knew their killers.’ The victims were all from Mississippi and living together in a home on the 2500 block of Pauger Street. They are identified as Felix Pearson, 19; Kenneth Monroe, 27; and Darriel Wilson, 20. Nola.com reports the men were found Saturday afternoon after the building manager ‘said he saw the lower half of a man’s body through a window and called 911.'”

    There is so much violence against gays right now. We have to appeal to International Human Rights groups as our own government does not care and we are not expecting a President Obama to care one Iota about us. We need to develop better self-protections, including Hate Crimes reporting even in states with no Hate Crimes protections by reporting the crime and then co9vering the reasons in a written statement.

    I just postponed my trip to the Big Easy indefinitely. We need this on the cover of The Advocate! We need to be on the television news and not be rendered invisible as there is a cultural war against our Right to Be and Love whom We Choose.

    2009 will be a bumpy ride, folks so document all your liasons and any unwarranted attacks, including verbal. Gays are endangered by the New Patriarchy of Ignorance.

    What a sad, sad tragedy to mark the beginning of a New Year.

    Murder in N.O. how suprising?

    The only way it will get on the cover of the advocate is if some straight celebrity is connected to it. then they’ll put his mug on the cover.

    Thank you all for your comments. Felix is my cousin, we grow up close together. If anyone has any info please let me know. His family has disowned him, but i still care and think about him. Again, thank you and God bless.

    @Beauty: That’s sad to hear that his family stills disowns him. I remember years ago when I first heard about this case. I used to dance with Felix a while back; he was young! Actually, yesterday, I thought back about and started researching to see if anything has come of this case. I just got off the phone with N.O. homicide and sadly they say no one has been charged. This is indeed a tragedy! My heart goes out to you and all the families. But thank you for seeing a human being in Felix and standing by him. Hopefully, this case will be one we soon see solved on Forensic Files or Mystery Detectives or some show because resolution and justice is in order!

    “Love is patient and kind. Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.
    It does not insist on its own way; It is not irritable or resentful; it does not
    rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things, love never ends”.(Corinthians 13:4-8)

    Felix was a wonderful, kind, intelligent, loving, brave, and courageous person. He was loved. I remember the night he was born, his first step, his first words, his first
    day of school, his life and challenges, his high school graduation, and his time in college. I also remember his funeral as our family said our final farewell. He was loved!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our family also respected Felix and his independent spirit. He was a talented
    drummer and could play music after simply hearing it. He was an artful person.
    Who knows what his life could have become had it not been stolen.

    Make no mistake, our hearts are broken. Our love for Felix will never end. Three
    families loss three very special people. Hopefully, we can continue to focus our pain and grief on finding justice.

    With All My Love
