The San Antonio Police Department has refused to investigate the murder of Troy Martinez Clattenberg as a hate crime in spite of a confession from his murderer, Cody Carmichael, wherein Carmichael stated to police that he shot Clattenburg because the victim made sexual advances toward him.
A San Antonio man was murdered in front of a local bar after he allegedly made a sexual advance toward another man. Enrique Santos, 22, has confessed to the murder of 50 year old, Jorge Sgetelmeg, stating that a fight broke out after Sgetelmeg purchased some beer for Santos. According to Santos’ confession and affidavit, Sgetelmeg and he were sharing the beer in his SUV. Sgetelmeg made a sexual advance at Santos and Santos punched him several times in the face before removing a rock from his pocket and hitting him several more times – then chocking the man with a neck tie.
Brandon McInerney, the teenager who allegedly murdered Larry King after King declared, “Baby, I love you,” to him, faced a day in the courtroom. During the pretrial hearing, Oxnard Police Sergeant Kevin Baysinger, told the court:
“Brandon said if he ever wanted to kill anybody, his dad had a bunch of guns and he had the capability.”
He went on to say that the investigation also revealed that McInerney told one of Larry’s friends before the murder to:
“Tell Larry goodbye because you’re not going to see him again.”
