Quickie Link: Gay Youth Found Stabbed in Boston
(USA) - Daniel Yakovleff, 20, was found early Thursday with a fatal stab wound in a multifamily house in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and now Boston homicide detectives are investigating. In Ashford, Yakovleff's distraught family is struggling to understand what happened, while also planning a memorial service to remember the outgoing, trusting and talented young man they loved. The brother of the victim said his parents have expressed concern to him that police will not take the crime seriously because Daniel was Gay. The family also has heard talk from some of Daniel Yakovleff's friends of predators targeting Gay people in Boston.
