(Newser) – A British diplomat was found severely beaten and strangled in his Jamaica home in what police believe was a homophobic attack, reports the Telegraph. A note was found with John Terry's body referring to the 65-year-old married father as gay, using a Jamaican slur. “This is what will happen to ALL gays," the note warned. Terry was found naked with a cord and clothing around his neck. He was honorary consul on the Caribbean island for 13 years.
