(Newser) – A 23-year-old Jamaican man has been arrested in the suspected gay-hate murder of a British diplomat. Consul John Terry, 62, was found last month bludgeoned and strangled in his long-time Montego Bay home with a handwritten note on his body containing a derogatory term for gays, reports the Telegraph. Police believe Terry knew his murderer.
