A homosexual man was arrested after murdering another homosexual following a quarrel after having sex. A 29-year-old man hit the 68-year-old French tourist with a wooden stick and he lost consciousness. Out of fear that he murdered him and in an attempt to hide the body, he chopped up the body, soaked the remains in petrol and then set them on fire to hide the evidence:
A man in India has confessed to chopping his gay lover into pieces after they had sex.
The 29-year-old murderer, who lives in Tamil Nadu in the south of the country, invited a 68-year-old French tourist to his home in the village of Avikottai, where the pair had sex before the victim was killed.
The gruesome murder is horribly reminiscent of another killing on the west coast of India in January, when 21-year-old Amaan Gopal Kavitiya confessed to fatally stabbing his lover Baptisto D’Costa during sex before robbing him.
In this case, senior police officer Senthil Kumar told AFP that the killer lashed out during an argument, then tried to hide the body in sandbags.
According to The Hindu, the murderer was called Thirumurugan and the victim was named Pierre Bernard Robert Rene.
“The student got frustrated and hit him on the head with a wooden stick and he (the tourist) collapsed,” said Kumar.
The murderer, fearing that his unconscious lover had died from the blow, placed Rene in a washing area in his home before dousing him in petrol and setting him on fire.
He then chopped up the corpse, hiding the parts in three sandbags and dumping them about 12km away in the nearby village of Moothakurichi.
Locals informed the police, who found Rene’s suitcase before questioning Thirumurugan.
He reportedly told officials the entire sequence of events, after which point they found the body and informed the French embassy in New Delhi. (source)
