Peru gay teen murdered, dismembered, burned in brutal hate crime

Friday, December 6, 2013

LIMA, Peru — A 19-year-old gay man in Peru has been tortured, brutally murdered and dismembered, according to local reports that surfaced earlier this week.

Joel Sanchez Molero was tortured, beheaded and had his genitals, fingers and toes cut off before his his body was set on fire, according to a statement by Gio Infante, director of the Peruvian advocacy group Homosexual Movement of Lima (MHOL).

Despite the body being unrecognizable, police identified the victim as Molero due to a wristband on his right hand.

The murder took place in the town of Chachapoyas, in the remote Peruvian Amazon region on November 22, but only published in the local press earlier this week.

Molero’s last living moments were captured by the CCTV footage of a local nightclub he visited, showing he was approached by Jorge Luis Sánchez Dávila, who he left with around 3:00 a.m.

Dávila has surrendered himself to the police, but claims he committed the murder in “self defense.”

Police officials are now seeking Dávila’s accomplices, and arrest warrants have been issued.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people attended Molero’s funeral procession demanding justice.

Promsex, a local charity, documented, 12 cases of LGBT people being murdered in 2012 and 17 in 2011. According to MHOL, a total of 249 LGBT people have been murdered from 2006 to 2010 in Peru.

Human rights organizations, including the United Nations Human Rights Commission, have consistently called upon Peru to legislate against anti-gay hate crimes.

Earlier this year, Peruvian lawmakers excluded LGBT people from a bill against discrimination and hate crimes.

Its sponsor and author, Congressman Carlos Bruce, blamed the powerful religious lobbies in the country, particularly the evangelical Church, for repeatedly blocking this legislation.

Manuel Narváez Quispe, of the Amazonian LGBT Association Chacha Libre, said in a statement, “Not only we demand justice for Joel, we demand a stop to hate crimes.”

“Schools should promote human rights and respect for all people, and the government must combat homophobic violence through awareness campaigns, and apply laws to guarantee our fundamental right to life,” he said.

  3. Self defense? No one will believe that. No one dismembers someone in self defense.

  7. There is one defense (that's bull shit, most US courts don't accept it, but I don't know about Peru) called 'gay panic'

  8. 'self defence' has always worked in countries that prosecute gay homicides, and is unneeded in those that don't.

  157. This is so jacked up….crazy…insane…senseless hatred that took Joel Sanchez Molero’s life with murder…Are there ever enough petitions….marches…rallies…or words that will eventually stop the hate?????….Nothing can give this young man back his life…..RIP…..Love and courage to his family and friends.

  164. This is a very sad and seriously disturbs me. When my boyfriend wonders why I come home extremely sad, this is why. And a dad as it is, think of what this kid went through. You know that the beheading was the final thing done to him. And my best guess is the guy thay did this to him did it because he was struggling with his own sexuality and took it out on this poor kid. So sad!!! :’-(

  166. What’s wrong with this? I’ll tell you! The whole world should be enraged, that this still happens. I don’t care what you believe , no one deserves this type of torture. Those responsible and you already have one in custody should be put to death.

    Posted on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 1:27am

  177. The pathology of societies in the West is coming out with the web,since the mainstream media seldom shows such cases,which are more frequent than we imagine.Brazil ,my country,brags having the biggest lgbt parade but it is also the 1st in lgbt deaths by hate crimes, transexuals being the worst victims of all. Recently,one mtf transexual ,after being stabbed,asked from door to door for help and nobody had the compassion to open any door whatsoever.There are many other such cases on a daily basis (specially of trans people,though not only, being brutally killed for hate crimes) !

  249. The most heinous crimes are committed by religious people! -Preachers that spew hatred or influence others to be bigoted, prejudice, ignorant and hateful are not doing God’s will.. They have encouraged society to disrespect and look down on gay people, have fought against anti-discrimination laws and hate crimes laws which would protect the rights of all people! They have also fought against equality, basically saying that gay people are to be second class citizens without the equal protections and same rights that heterosexuals have! They have influenced oppression of a discriminated group of people.. They always speak about gay people in a negative tone, they pass of a message condemning gay people..they never stand up for this minority group-or rarely do..but most the time these preachers just tell everyone how bad homosexuality is! -No one does evil like those who do it in the name of God!- Stop spreading hate! Stop spreading lies! Being gay is not a choice!! -And (People attracted to the opposite sex are not better than people attracted to the same sex)! We are all equal deserve equal protection and equal civil rights!
