I ran across this story on a blog, and I don't really have time to research it: http://asemicharmedlife.com/2008/10/23/elderly-gay-couple-slain-in-indy/
can some of you check into it and report back here? From the report on the blog, it sounds as if this older gay couple was murdered just because they are gay.

I heard about it a few days ago, but they hadn't released the information about the phone lines being cut and the message left on the door. When I last heard they were looking into the possibility that it was a hate crime, but it was still a big question mark.

I saw the story on the local news last night. They weren't saying that the older couple was gay. They refered to an elderly man and his caregiver. However, the thought DEFINATELY crossed my mind. I will check on the Indy Star website and see what I can come up with.

I read this story on Towleroad a day ago. The story there was that the couple was gay, and one of the men was wheelchair bound. And they they were killed by blunt force. Jesus! Really broke my heart. It's every elderly gay man/couple's nightmare, living in a rural area- fearful of being a target for sicko homophobes.
