Morley Memorial Page
Morley was a survivor. Internet news reports indicate he survived
a 1999 nail bombing of a gay club. Unfortunately, he was not so
fortunate in 2004. The 37 year old man was attacked by a group of young
people. The people who attacked Morley are believed to have attacked
six people in a period of about 15 minutes. News stories give us the
impression he was beaten and kicked. He had 40 bruises on his head and
body, broken ribs and a ruptured spleen. There is some thought that the
attack on David Morley might have been photgraphed by the killers.
Toward the end of December, 2004 four teenagers had been charged.
News reports indicate the
number of crimes against gay people in the London, United Kingdom area
have increased in the year before David Morley was murdered. We gather
the homophobic attacks rose by over 10% in the year.
