He changed his mind about having gay sex. He'll have all the gay sex he wants in prison.

It bothers me that people are even discussing the fact that these men were gay, or experimenting, or whatever their relationship was. How many domestic disputes are there in a day among heterosexual couples? A crazy person is a crazy person. I've seen the perpetrator's myspace too, and it's pretty clear to me that he has some issues. I didn't read the blogs but it's a page that is pretty indicative that he suffered some kind of abuse through his life. It's not an excuse, just a possible explanation.

You should all check out Freemore's MYSPACE page--it seems that he thought he was a true life JOKER.His family and friends should have seen something coming by what he posted.To all parents and friends of kids using MYSPACE-check it often and look into questionable comments.

it doesn't matter if this was a guy and girl a girl and a girl or a guy and a guy this guy killed this guy for basically no reason he should have the same thing done to him... eye for an eye. this is crazy i'm so sick of people discussing the sexual oreination of them and not discussing the face that this man killed another man for no reason... oh what cuz you didn't want to sleep with him again. then why the heck did you even meet up with him!!! he deserves everything and more that is coming to him

c'mon people. This is obviously not a hate crime. Two consenting adults were meeeting for a.... whatever. One ended up dead. I don't think it was Goucher's plan to get killed that night.

What upsets me is how it was reported. It is one sided, and portrays gay lifestyles in a negative light.

Question: In the past year, how many STRAIGHT folks have done the deed in the back seat of a car? How many have met up a second time for another "go"? How many ended up dead?

It has nothing to do with sexuality. It has to do with one consenting adult KILLING another!

We don't know that what Mr. Killer said is ACTUALLY what happened. Now, poor Mr. Goucher is gone, and the only legacy left behind by THIS NEWSPAPER is that he was Gay and that it was being Gay that killed him.

That is deplorable.

To the family: I am so sorry that you have lost a loved one. I will pray for you all that you will find peace.

"Freemore changed his mind and wound up stabbing Goucher in the neck"

That's one heck of a way to tell a guy you've changed your mind about a bee-jay. I think "I'm sorry, I have a headache" is usually the protocol in situations like that. Or not showing up at all.

OMG. Someone mentioned his MySpace page ( ). Why was this kid - because his emotional level didn't seem to have progressed beyond 15 or so - not under a doctor's care?

Are there younger brothers or sisters at his mother's or father's home? If so, the family should be checked out to see if it's a fit place for them. If not, they should be taken and put in foster care, ideally with a family which can demonstrate love. This kid doesn't look like he came from that kind of environment.

He's going to end up in prison if he did this deed, and it sure sounds premeditated, but that's not what he needs. He'll get released before he's 40 and he'll have turned into a buff, self-actualized, hateful, motivated monster.

Did I miss something? I haven't seen anything about a meat cleaver. The article says "KNIFE."
