Tragic news in the Liverpool Echo today that an 18 year old man from Liverpool has died in hospital following a suspected homophobic attack last Friday. Michael Causer, who was openly gay, died in the Walton Neurological Centre on Saturday.
He was attacked in the Huyton area of Liverpool, on Friday 25th July. Doctors carried out surgery to try to reduce the swelling on Michael's brain, but unfortunately this proved unsuccessful.
Police have arrested two men for assault with intent to grievous bodily harm. This, presumably, will now change to murder.
My thoughts and prayers are with Michael's family and friends. May he rest in peace.
