Torture in Croydon. But he was 'only' a gay man.

How can I have missed this? It happened last April. Doing a Google search shows up quite a lot of references, but these are all either in the gay media, or very local media. I see no references in mainstream media. I've done searches on both the BBC and the Telegraph (reg. required) sites and come up with nothing. And even the references I have found seem not to be contemporaneous.

Why? Is it because he was gay? Or because he was a drug addict? Who knows, but it sure is curious.
