On Feb. 21, Cody Carmichael, 21, shot and killed Troy Clattenburg, 24.
The murder took place in Clattenburg’s mother’s apartment in San Antonio. Carmichael was arrested and confessed to the murder. He said he shot Clattenburg because of unwanted sexual advances.
San Antonio police are refusing to investigate the murder as a hate crime and Carmichael is preparing a “gay panic” defense, according to the San Antonio Express News.
Carmichael and another man were at Clattenburg’s house earlier in the evening. The two left. The other man gave Carmichael the gun. He returned and shot Clattenburg. No charges have been filed against the other man who supplied the gun.
