David James Brown, 22, was arrested for the murder of Marc Pourner, whose body was found near Conroe.
Brown may have been Pourner’s boyfriend’s best friend according to The Advocate.
The suspect was arrested in a CVS parking lot in Delphi, Ind., northwest of Indianapolis.
Pourner disappeared on Nov. 12 and was found two days later in his burned out truck. The murder was considered a possible hate crime, since it took place a week after Houston voters rejected a hate crime ordinance. Police have not yet released information regarding Brown’s motive in killing Pourner.
Pourner’s family is establishing a scholarship in his memory to help LGBT students.
