Washington DC police sources are telling Lez Get Real, that a body found Friday in a wooded section of Rock Creek Park is that of ACLU State Legislative Counsel Larry Frankel. Rock Creek Park is located in Northwest DC. Police say that a jogger running along a path in the park just south of Beach Drive and north of Massachusetts Ave NW, about 11 a.m. Friday saw something floating in the water that later turned out to be Frankels body. US Park Police initially responded to the joggers 911 call and were later joined on the scene by investigators from the homicide division of the DC Metro Police.

If this was a specific target because of who he was and what he represented/fought for/supported, then the only thing I can say is to repeat "Ambassador Kosh" from the television series, "Babylon 5":

And so it begins.

I haven't seen this from a major news outlet yet after an initial google, and don't plan on clicking through to the joke source cited here.

there are a thousand stories about it when I google it, however..all the pages say is that he died, and it is unknown as to how or why.

It was murder...
And I think their prime suspect should be Mary gallagher of NOM.

she is the devil incarnate.

If I ever see her...she will finally know if there really is a GOD.

Please supply the url of a major news outlet with the story. All I get so far is blogs.

I can't find any major or minor news outlets carrying this story. So it seems completely reasonable that LGR called for more information, and all they got was confirmation of what's in the blogosphere.

In the meantime, we know nothing about any foul play nor who might have committed such. It is not yet time for breathless condemnation of anti-gay or conservative activists.

I found this report from the Philadelphia Daily News:

According to their sources, the preliminary results don't indicate foul play, but death due to natural causes while out jogging...

Paula, I appreciate the scoop. Gay News Rules!

The straights have a disadvantage because they can't see news stories from the gay point of view.

Bring it. Lets see what you've got. Just don't start crying foul when you go down in flames (no pun intended)
