  1. That is devastating. If his his mother or family or friends read this then i hope they know that some of us do care and are disgusted and appalled by this. I hope they know that we will be thinking of the loss of their lovely son at this time. I am so very sorry.

    Amen.

  3. David Brown may he be in all are thoughts

  4. I don’t know if British prisons have the same reputation as American prisons, but I hope this dispicable piece of human flesh gets his comeuppance several times over in prison. May David Brown rest in peace.

    As a gay man, i’ve read everything available on this story. Doesn’t appear motivated by anti-gay bias, but but money. A few pounds. If the murderer were white, I wonder if the penalty would have been as justly meted out.

    My sincerest condolences to David’s family and friends. This was senseless and a reflection of society’s ills.

  6. Five years has gone by and still the village seems an empty space without David in it. He was such a genuine nice man and friend and we all miss him dearly. The sooner knife crime is tackled the better. I hardly go out in the village anymore but I am aware from my friends that it can be a rough place to go to now. Please for the sake of David go out and enjoy yourself but dont resort to violence.
