West Hollywood Man Brutally Beaten
A wave of disbelief shook the gay community early yesterday morning when 23-year-old West Hollywood resident Marcus Foster Jr. was brutally beaten in a hate crime reminiscent of the Matthew Shepard slaying that rocked the nation less than three years ago.
The attack occurred just after 12 a.m. as Foster and friend, Peter Janovic, were returning home from a late-night movie. The couple had stopped at a nearby ATM machine when they were chased by two men, armed with lead pipes. Janovic was able to escape and placed the 9-1-1 call that led to the arrest of William Yardly and Travis Lumner, both of Orange County. The two suspects were held overnight by police for further questioning.
Foster was a graduate student at UCLA, getting his Masters in English. He is survived by his parents, Patsy and Marcus Foster. No funeral arrangements were announced at this time, but a candlelight vigil will be held in Foster's honor on Tuesday, June 12th in West Hollywood.
