No Hate In Sean Kennedy Death

South Carolina sheriff’s investigator Paul Silvaggio testified last week that Stephen Andrew Moller did not attack Sean Kennedy because he was gay.

Through an extensive investigation I found that the defendant did not strike the victim because he was a homosexual. It was only later that he knew the victim was a homosexual.

Kennedy died in May after Moller punched him and Kennedy fell to the ground, sustaining fatal injuries. Moller’s set to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter, but has been released on $25,000 bond. He’s currently living with his mother.

Kennedy’s activist mother, Elke, still describes the crime as murder, but refuses to wallow in despair. She’s set up a foundation to raise awareness about South Carolina’s impotent hate crime laws. Go mama!
